Today, we’re going to talk about the legendary power couples that had a huge influence on the music industry. Therefore, if you want to know which couples dominated the music scene back in the day, and which ones are currently at the top, stick around and find out.
Johnny Cash and June Carter
Probably one of the most iconic couples in the history of music. These two incredible performers were very popular back in the day and the audience all over the world simply wanted them to end up together. After they met in the backstage in 1950 at the Grand Ole Opry, Cash and Carter agreed to collaborate and make a couple of songs together and that’s how it all started. Their first song, “It Ain’t Me Babe”, came out 14 years after their first meeting. Four years later, in 1968, Johnny proposed to June in front of the live audience, and that’s how one of the greatest music couples was born.
Sonny & Cher
Before becoming a legendary power couple, Cherilyn Sarkisian (Cher) and Salvatore Bono (Sonny) were working as backup singers for a producer named Phil Spector. Shortly after that endeavor, the two of them fell in love and started their own magnificent duo. They were active from 1964 to 1977 and during that time these two inspired a lot of young generations with songs like “I Got You Babe”, “Baby Don’t Go”, “Love Don’t Come”, and many more. Besides being great musicians, Sonny and Cher where huge TV stars. It’s safe to say that they were one of the most influential couples in the 70s.
Before we start discussing the current power couples, here are some honorable mentions from the past:
– Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan. These two met in 1980 while filming movie “One From The Heart”.
– Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Even though their relationship ended with a sad breakup, these two are considered one of the biggest power couples in pop music history.
– Yoko Ono and John Lennon are a definition of a power couple! They met in the 1960s, and Yoko immediately became John’s muse. Their love inspired some of the greatest songs ever written.
Blake Shelton And Gwen Stefani
Even though these two are still a relatively fresh couple (especially considering their previous long-term relationships), we simply had to put them on this list simply because of the influence they have on country and pop music. Both Blake and Gwen divorced their spouses (Miranda Lambert and Gavin Rossdale) in the summer of 2015. Shortly after that, in November that same year, Shelton and Stefani started dating. Apparently, these two are trying for a baby these days! We wish them luck on this new journey.
Jay Z and Beyoncé
We saved the best for last. Jay Z and Beyoncé are definitely the greatest power couple of today. These two met when they were working on a track called ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ back in 2002. However, their love affair started a year later when they recorded one of their greatest hits ‘Crazy In Love’ Now, fifteen years later, they’re still drunk in love (pun intended)! Not only that, they are still actively ruling the world of R&B music and in the meantime, they became proud parents of three beautiful children – Blue Ivy Carter, Rumi Carter, and Sir Carter. Jay Z and Beyoncé truly are an inspiration!
