It’s not unusual for initial brushes with fame to wear down a country singer’s marriage, especially if the star in question married at a young age. There are exceptions though, such as Charley Pride. The music legend’s been married to his wife Rozene since Dec. 28, 1956– a full 10 years before Pride’s first single and studio album.

The couple met in 1956 while Pride played Negro League baseball for the Memphis Red Sox– the same team that had Pride’s brother Mack Pride Jr. on its roster the prior season.
