The duo chat with People about their happiness in finding love with each other less than two years after their first meeting.
“Our careers allow us to do what we love, and then we find time to be with who we love,” Ballerini told the publication. “I think that makes for a very full life—if you can do anything you want, and then share it with someone.”
Evans, a native of Australia, said he questioned his married friends about life after the vows were exchanged.
“In the run-up to a wedding, you ask a lot of your married friend — especially people who are in similar situations or ages — ‘Is anything changing or the same, but a little more wonderful?'” he said. . “Everyone keeps saying, ‘Ah, it’s getting better.’
“And whatever that means, I’m looking forward to it and it’s going to be fun.”
