Happy anniversary to Martina McBride and her husband John McBride! The couple is celebrating their 24th wedding anniversary today, May 15. So what’s the secret to their success and longevity?
“Well first of all I got lucky and chose well,” Martina said. “And we just have a lot of respect for each other and we are really good friends, and I think that that’s really important. We’ve grown together instead of apart. So it’s all worked out. He’s a great partner and I try to be a good partner back.”
Martina and John aren’t the only country couple celebrating an anniversary this week. Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton tied the knot a year ago on May 14 and Jake Owen and his new wife, Lacey, exchanged vows on the beach at sunrise just over a week ago on May 7.
