KEEPING THE UNION INTACT
“We record the meaningful moments, the best laughs. That’s a big part of our relationship - focusing on the laughter and keeping a sense of play,” said Kimberly.
The 49-year-old and her spouse shared that their solid union, which spans more than a decade-long is better than what it was when they first walked down the aisle back then.

Brad, 48, said, “A lot of married couples would rather do anything but spend the evening together. That’s not the case in our house.” He also praised the mother of his kids and showed appreciation to her.
"You keep our house afloat – seeing you give birth to two kids and raise a third is amazing. And you try to do the right thing all the time," he noted. For Kimberly, it’s her husband’s caring heart that she loves the most about him.
THEIR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY
The duo celebrated their 18th wedding anniversary on March 16. They marked their special day by taking to Instagram and paid tributes to one another.
Brad took to the platform and jokingly uploaded a photo of his wife crying while wishing her a happy anniversary and referencing it as tears of joy for her. At the same time, Kimberly went for a more heartfelt approach.
She posted a selfie of them on the beach and shared how she cannot believe that they have been married for this long, considering all they have been through and what they have done in that time. Kimberly then thanked her husband for the adventure with a love you note at the end.
BRAD & KIMBERLY’S LOVE STORY
Brad fell for his now-wife when he first saw her in "Father of the Bride." Years later, he cast her in his music video "I'm Gonna Miss Her.” For the songwriter, it was love at first sight, whereas for Kimberly, it was "more like love at first month or two."
The lovebirds got married in 2003 on the campus of Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. Their wedding reception was reportedly a laid-back affair.
The twosome shares sons Jasper, 11, and William, 14. They renewed their wedding vows in 2015 at a friend's house. Kimberly described the event as "a really crampy" ceremony.
CELEBRATING COUNTRY MUSIC
Putting the romantic feel to it, Brad celebrated the month of love this year by hosting alongside fellow country music star Blake Shelton the Grand Ole Opry’s 95th anniversary special on Valentine’s Day.
The weekly onstage concert in Nashville, Tennessee, has been running since November 28, 1925, and is regarded as the gold standard honor for musicians looking to break into the music business.
The show features country, bluegrass, Americana, gospel music, folk, and comedy performances and skits. One step from appearing on the stage is an invitation to become a member of the Opry, and Brad has been one for 20 years.
