Are y'all ready for another heartwarming country love story?! Well today is your lucky day, because Merle Haggard and Theresa Lane have a great one! 

Back in the 80s Lane's mother convinced her to go see Haggard perform, although she admitted she was more into ZZ Top. After the show, Lane recalls meeting the band's guitar player first, but Haggard knew what he wanted, and swept her off her feet (and away from his guitarist!). In an interview with Rolling Stone, Lane said after the meeting, "I went on a month tour with him, and we were pretty much together."

And the rest was history!

The couple married on September 11, 1993 and shortly after had two beautiful children, Jenessa and Ben. (And y'all know Ben is just as talented as his dad right? Right! Check him out here

In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Haggard told the world, "I have a young family, and it's turned out to be the best decision, probably, that I've ever made." He also admits that his wife is a huge inspiration to him, saying in the same interview, "She sings, and she writes real good. She's a real good writer, and that's kind of how we got to liking each other, was through writing and her desiring to be a writer."

A match made in Heaven! 

And what's more adorable than this love story?! How about Merle & Theresa singing a romantic duet about everlasting love? Yes! 

Check out the video below to hear the country couple singing, "Live and Love Always" and we're sure it will melt your heart!

LYRICS BELOW 

I wanna live and love under the stars above
I wanna hold you close to my heart
You gave me hopes anew when I was sad and blue
Nothin's gonna tear us apart

I sang a lonely song until you came along
I'm headed for that bright sunny day
Honey I'm tellin' you what love can do
I'm gonna live and love always

Yeah I wanna shout hooray, praise that lucky day
When you came walking into my life
I got a change in plans 'cause I'm a different man
I'm thru with all that trouble and strife

I used to be so sad now I feel so glad
I'm headed for that bright sunny day
Honey I'm tellin' you what love can do
I'm gonna live and love always

Yeah, I used to feel so bad now I feel so glad
I'm headed for that bright sunny day
Honey I'm tellin' you what love can do
I'm gonna live and love always
