Toby Keith and his wife, Tricia Covel (Toby's real last name), managed to turn young love into a lifetime love. The couple married when Toby was only 22, and just celebrated their 32nd wedding anniversary in March.
When they first married, Toby was working in the oil fields to support his family. But eventually, Toby decided to chase a career in country music. Many of Tricia's friends expressed their doubts to her about Toby's choice of career, but she never wavered in her support of him:
"Dozens of people told Tricia, 'You need to go tell your old man to get a real job,'" Toby told Nash Country Weekly. "It took a strong-hearted and loving woman to say, 'He’s good enough at music that I've got to let him try."
She did just that, and Toby is now one of the biggest names in country music, with over 40 million records sold.
Thanks to Tricia for never giving up on Toby and his dream!
