On Friday, Avril Lavigne turned 29! In honor of her birthday and recent nuptials, we’re taking a look at some of the strongest marriages between musicians for her and her new hubby, Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, to look up to. Without further ado, here are our Top 5 Musical Marriages:


Beyonce & Jay-Z: Bey and Jay might as well be called the King and Queen of music. After dueting all those years ago on “’03 Bonnie & Clyde,” the pair fell in love and got married. They’re doing well for themselves two: in addition to welcoming daughter Blue Ivy Carter in recent years, they made a sequel to their original hit, “Part II (On the Run)” and have also been named Forbes’s highest earning couples two years running.

Miranda Lambert & Blake Shelton: Blake and Miranda haven’t been together as long as some of the others on this list, but they’re some of the most passionate. The dynamic duo married in 2011, and Blake mentions his wife all the time when he’s coaching on NBC’s “The Voice.” Miranda even stopped by to duet with him on “Over You,” a song they wrote together, after the tornadoes hit his home state of Oklahoma this spring.

Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale: Gwen and Gavin have been together forever, having met back in ’95! The pair were married in 2002 and have two kids together. Though they’ve had their ups and downs, namely Gavin’s 2004 paternity scandal, but they have stuck together. Now rumor has it that Gwen is expecting their third child together, and we couldn’t be happier for them!

Tim McGraw & Faith Hill: These two country legends got hitched back in 1996 and have been inseparable ever since. Tim has recorded a number of duets with his wife, including, “Just to Hear That You Love Me” and “Angry All the Time.” Their 2006 “Soul II Soul Tour” broke records, becoming the highest-grossing country music tour of all time. Though Faith hasn’t released a studio album since 2005, now she Tim have announced they have been talking about releasing an entire album of duets!

Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin: Yeah, we know this one is a bit of a stretch, but Gwyneth did prove that she had real pipes when she guest starred on “Glee,” even earning herself an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy. The “Iron Man” star married Coldplay frontman Chris Martin back in 2003, and the couple is still going strong.
