“It takes a strong woman to be married to a musician, especially a musician who was drinking and partying as hard as I was, and I think life for us is where we are now,” he said. “It took a long time for us to get to where we are now, and we say to each other all the time, ‘I love us. I love our family.’ And I thank her every day for staying with me and being the strong woman she is. You know, her and country music saved my life.”
