Country Stars and Their Soul Mates: Alan Jackson
Alan Jackson and his wife Denise are one of the more famous couples in country music, although until recently she's mostly stayed behind the scenes. The highschool sweethearts wed in 1979, and it was Denise's run-in with a famous country star while working as a flight attendant that kick-started his career. They separated briefly in 1998, but later reconciled. Jackson has written a number of songs about that period in his life, and Denise also wrote a book that discusses their troubles called 'It's All About Him: Finding the Love of My Life.' The couple have three daughters.
