This Valentine’s Day, Alan Jackson and Darius Rucker are praising their wives. Alan has been married to his wife Denise for more than thirty years, but their love for one another is as strong as ever.

“We got a lot of history together now, and we’re happier than we’ve ever been,” Alan said. “She’s still beautiful, and she’s always inspired songs. One of my early hits was a song called ‘I’d Love You All Over Again,’ I wrote for her for our 10th anniversary. There’s been a zillion songs that have pieces of our good days and bad days inspired, and they continue to.”

As for Darius, he didn’t have a doubt in his mind that he would marry wife Beth from the very beginning. He credits her with providing him with stability in the midst of his crazy career.

“I don’t know what it was about her,” Darius said. “I mean, it was EVERYTHING about her. I knew, I told her I was going to marry her on our first date. Beth’s a strong woman. 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. 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. I love us.’

“And I thank her every day for staying with me and being the strong woman she is,” he continued. “Because with Hootie & the Blowfish, I could be gone for three months and then I’d come home for two days and then I’d be gone again for a month, and she put up with all that crap. Her and country music saved my life.”
