From Brittany Aldean to Lauren Akins, here are some of the most followed country music spouses

They may not peak Billboard charts like their country superstar partners, but a handful of Nashville wives and husbands have become celebrities in their own right as social media influencers — sometimes even drawing millions of followers.

Interspersed with adoring photos with their mates are often posts about product endorsements, beauty tips, cooking tips, business recommendations, childcare suggestions and — here’s where it sometimes gets tricky — politics.

On Thursday, Billboard reported it Jason Aldean‘s long-standing advertising firm, The GreenRoom PR, divorce their client of 17 years. Although GreenRoom’s statement to Billboard didn’t give a reason — other than to say the company’s focus is on the music — the move came shortly after Aldean’s wife, Brittany, posted comments on her Instagram feed, including “I really want to thank my parents for not changing my gender when I went through my tomboy phase,” followed by criticism of gender-affirming care. Although she later claimed her comments had been taken out of context (without explaining how), many people – including Maren Morris and Cassadee Pope — had called her comments transphobic.

Brittany Aldean has taken advantage of the controversy and launched a new clothing line where the profits go to charity and appearing on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson tonight Thursday and positioned himself as a children’s advocate.

But not all of these women (and men!) court controversy on their Instagram feeds. Below are some of the country music wives and husbands with the biggest social media followings and how they use their platforms.
