Kelsea Ballerini & Husband Morgan Evans Relationship Timeline

March 12, 2016: Co-hosts Shots and Kiss 

After successfully co-hosting Australia's Country Music Channel Awards, they went for the after-party, where Evans asked Ballerini to take a tequila shot. They drank together, and later that night, the Australian singer asked her if he could kiss her, and she agreed. That day sparked the connection between the pair.

Morgan was already in love with her, but the songstress was skeptical about starting a relationship. At first, she did not know that he used to live in Tennesse, Nashville. But she was not ready to give him up, and hence they started dating.

November 18, 2021: The Secret to a Happy Marriage

The American singer and songwriter opened up about her married life in an interview with People. She said that she never wanted to get married till she met Evans.

She had seen her parents divorced during her childhood and was raised in a broken family. But as she grew up, she realized that there is beauty that lies in every relationship, and no one should be too quick to judge. The approach to their relationship is different and healthy, which makes them a good couple. She also said that they take couple therapy all the time.
