Lainey Wilson & Duck Hodges

Lainey Wilson has been dating former NFL star Devlin 'Duck' Hodges since 2021, but the couple only made their relationship public knowledge in May 2023 when he accompanied her to the ACM Awards.

The couple are private about their romance, but Lainey did say that Duck is "a good dude" while speaking to host Bobby Bones.

"I'll tell you, he is good as gold," she added. "Supports me, would never come in between anything that I'm trying to do."

Kelsea Ballerini & Chase Stokes

Kelsea Ballerini found love following her divorce from Morgan Evans with Outer Banks actor Chase Stokes.

The couple hinted at their romance in January 2023 when they were pictured cuddling at a football game, and one month later Kelsea confirmed she wasn't single, although she didn't name Chase as her boyfriend.

However, at the 2023 CMTs, they made their red carpet debut, confirming their relationship status, with Chase later telling Entertainment Tonight: "She seriously is the best human being on planet Earth and she's so damn talented."

Jelly Roll & Bunnie Xo

Jelly Roll and Bunnie Xo met in 2015 backstage at one of his shows, but she was in an abusive relationship at the time, according to Jelly Roll.

Bunnie split from her partner soon after meeting her future husband and the pair were reacquainted by mutual friends, with their friendship soon turning romantic.

"It's a white trash love story," he told Taste of Country Nights in 2022.

They tied the knot in a courthouse ceremony in Las Vegas on August 31, 2016. They renewed their vows in 2023.

Parker McCollum & Hallie Ray Light

Parker McCollum and his pregnant wife Hallie Ray Light married in March 2022 and are expecting their first child later this year.

The singer credits Hallie for saving his life, previously telling People: "I couldn't wait to ask her to marry me. There was no backup plan and no hesitation.

"I didn't overthink one thing. I was like, 'It can't get any better than her.' There was no doubt in my mind that I was making the right decision.

"She saved my life in a way. I don't think I was headed down the right road."
