After 12 beautiful years of marriage country star shares news that has us all in tears. I’ve always loved these two.
Dierks Bentley has been a new sensation in country music, and we can’t get enough of him. The country star continues to wow us all with his talent and love for his fans.
Another reason we love him so much is because of his relationship with his beautiful wife. He and Cassidy have been married for 11 years now.
Not only that, but they have welcomed three beautiful children into the world since 2008: Evie, Jordan, and Knox. Throughout his time in his country music career we have been able to watch the two of them fall more in love than ever.
He recently interviewed and shared about the first time the two of them met. He said that he had always wanted to date her from the moment he laid eyes on her.
“I’ve known my wife since we were 13 years old in eighth grade,” He revealed to the publication. “We kinda dated each other’s best friends. The four of us always hung out, but I really wanted her. We dated around 17, but I was no way mature enough for her. We always kept in touch and would see each other when friends got married or home for summers.”
Later on in life he finally had the chance to see her again and knew right away that she was the one. This had me in tears.
But then she came to a show I played in Vegas in 2005, and we were opening for George Strait on February 5, and I just knew right away,” Bentley gushed, adding, “We eloped in Mexico at the end of the year.”
We’ve also seen Dierks write some pretty incredible songs about his bride. One specifically that fans have raved about is his song “Black.”
It wasn’t just the name of the song either, it was the name of the album. It was so special to him because he wanted to write about the darker side of relationships.
You know, he wanted to let people know that everyone goes through the hard times. It’s also his wife’s maiden name which brings an extra layer of meaning to the entire album.
He recently shared that he loves the title because of how his wife’s maiden name is Black.
“I just loved the title Black,” Bentley tells viewers of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “…And thought it’d be a really good title for a song about relationships – kind of the darker side of relationships and what goes on once the sun goes down. Also, it’s my wife’s maiden name so it was a special time for me to think…and it worked.”
I love these two together!!!
