Toby Keith and Tricia Covel (formerly Lucas) have managed to keep their relationship private and normal despite the fact that Toby Keith is one of the most successful country singers in the industry with an impressive 61 charted singles and 21 number one hits. Despite his wide spread fame, status has never gotten in the way of them raising their family and living a low-key life in Oklahoma. This might be due to the fact that their 33-year long marriage predates any of Toby’s country fame. Here’s a look at 7 things you probably didn’t know about Toby Keith and Tricia Covel’s relationship!
7. How They Met
It was definitely young love for these two sweethearts! They met at a club when Tricia was only 19, and Toby was 20. In an interview with People, Tricia recalls her first impression of Toby. “He was just one of those larger-than-life guys, full of confidence.” They dated for three years before they got married.
Toby and Tricia have been married for an impressive 33 years. They tied the knot on March 24, 1984, when he was only 22-years-old. Their wedding not only marked the beginning of their marriage, but also made Keith a father to Shelley, Covel’s daughter from a previous relationship. He adopted her after they exchanged nuptials, and the two later had a daughter of their own named Krystal Keith, who’s now pursuing a career in music, and a son, Stelen.
