Country music superstar Chris Stapleton and his wife, Morgane Stapleton, are celebrating 14 years of love and marriage. Today, both partners took to social media to share kind words for each other, accompanied by black and white photos captured during heartwarming moments they have shared together.
In the images shared by the powerhouse couple, the sparks seem to be flying, as they simply enjoy their time together, both on stage and off. They met in 2003 while working in adjacent Nashville Publishing companies, and tied the knot a few years later in 2007. Morgane has previously admitted to hanging around the publishing office more than necessary, in hopes of running into her singer-songwriter crush, Chris Stapleton, at the time. Her persistence eventually paid off because one day, Stapleton asked her to join him in a late night songwriting session, which actually turned into the couple’s first date, and that night began their love story.

“Happy Anniversary to the lady who’s always got my back!” Stapleton wrote on Instagram.
“14 years today,” Morgane began. “I don’t remember much about life before you. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for hearing me. Thank you for teaching me. Thank you for respecting me. Thank you for giving me everything I cherish in this life. I love you more than I’ll ever be able to put into words, but I’ll spend the rest of my time here on earth trying. Happy anniversary my love!”

Stapleton and his wife choose to live a private lifestyle, so fans are eager to wish them well when they do share a look into their lives together.
“Happy anniversary! It was such a joy to see you perform together,” one fan commented under Stapleton’s post.
Together, they now live in Nashville, TN and have five children.
Just like in a true country love song, music first brought them together and it remains a huge part of both of their lives to this day. Morgane is often seen singing either backup or beside her husband on stage, and they continue their talented songwriting together. So in addition to being romantic partners, they are also an incredibly talented musical duo.
Stapleton’s debut album, Traveller, was inspired by a road trip he and Morgane took together after losing his father in 2013. She stood by her husband’s side as he grieved this terrible loss. Morgane then helped turn his thoughts and emotions into the collection of songs that can be heard on his first solo album.
When the couple got married, Stapleton had “You are my sunshine” inscribed on the inside of his wedding ring. This sentimental gesture was done as a reminder of their relationship and their story. The song still shows great importance to the couple, as they choose to perform “You Are My Sunshine” together at most shows and even got the chance to record it.
So many relationships end in heartbreak, but for the Stapleton’s, love has won so far and by the looks of it, will continue to strengthen as the couple grows together.
