Billy Strings, the acclaimed bluegrass musician, has married his longtime girlfriend, Allyssa Cantrell, in a private ceremony. The couple, who have been together for nine years, exchanged vows on January 2, 2024, surrounded by their closest friends and family.

How They Met And Fell In Love

Billy and Allyssa met in 2015, when they were both living in Nashville, Tennessee. Billy was pursuing his music career, while Allyssa was working as a hairstylist. They were introduced by a mutual friend, who thought they would hit it off.

They were right. Billy and Allyssa felt an instant connection and started dating soon after. They bonded over their love of music, nature, and adventure. They also supported each other’s dreams and goals, and encouraged each other to grow and learn.

Billy told Rolling Stone that Allyssa was his biggest inspiration and motivation. “She’s my best friend. She’s my partner. She’s my everything. She makes me a better person. She makes me a better musician. She makes me happy,” he said.

Allyssa also expressed her admiration and gratitude for Billy. “He’s my soulmate. He’s my rock. He’s my hero. He makes me laugh. He makes me feel loved. He makes me proud,” she said.

The Challenges They Overcame

Billy and Allyssa’s relationship was not always smooth sailing. They had to deal with long-distance, busy schedules, and personal struggles. Billy toured extensively, playing hundreds of shows a year, while Allyssa stayed in Nashville, running her own salon.

Billy also faced some challenges in his music career, such as dealing with pressure, expectations, and criticism. He told Forbes that he sometimes felt overwhelmed and anxious, but Allyssa helped him cope. “She was always there for me. She always believed in me. She always told me I was amazing and I could do it,” he said.

Allyssa also had her own difficulties. She suffered from a rare autoimmune disease, which affected her health and well-being. She told PopCulture that Billy was very supportive and understanding during that tough time. “He was very patient. He was very helpful. He was very loving. He was very attentive to me and our dogs,” she said.

Allyssa also achieved her own success. She graduated from college with a degree in business and became a successful entrepreneur. She also started her own podcast, The Allyssa Show, where she interviewed celebrities, musicians, and influencers. She also became a mother to their two dogs, Whiskey and Banjo.

The Future They Look Forward To

Billy and Allyssa are still madly in love after nine years of dating. They live in a beautiful farmhouse in Michigan, with their two dogs and their chickens. They enjoy spending time together as a couple, listening to music, hiking, fishing, and traveling. They also support each other’s dreams and goals, and celebrate each other’s achievements.
