Ryan Upchurch, best known for hit country songs like “Holler Boys” and “Outlaw,” married Taylor Eileen Smith, his best friend, and lover. He even took on the role of stepfather to his stepdaughter.
However, there are speculations that the artist and his wife are no longer together. Learn everything there is to know about the story!
Ryan Upchurch tied the knot with Taylor Eileen Smith
Around the year 2020, Upchurch began dating Taylor Eileen Smith. She had already given birth to her baby girl Raelynn Ann at the time (Rae). Her motherhood, on the other hand, did not affect the couple’s romantic connection. Instead, Upchurch began acting as a father figure to his girlfriend’s four-year-old.
The Nashville native finally proposed to his fiancée, taking their love to the next level. On July 10, 2020, they announced their engagement. The singer shared an intimate photo with Smith on Instagram on the day of their engagement. He gripped her hands while she showed off a large, gleaming engagement ring.
Following the engagement, Upchurch posted a now-deleted Instagram post on August 4, 2020, with a heartfelt message for his fiancée. He expressed his gratitude to her for allowing him to be himself.
Simply said, thank you for allowing me to be who I am and not attempting to change me into someone I’m not. In a world where I don’t feel normal most of the time, you make me feel normal. Thank you so much for everything you do for me daily. You are truly my best friend, and I am grateful that I am going to marry you and spend the rest of my life with you… I adore you and am completely devoted to you.
The couple then married on September 18, 2020, in a wedding ceremony.

Is Ryan Upchurch still married to his wife?
After getting married, the ‘Mud To Gold’ artist and his wife Taylor Eileen Smith went low-key about their relationship. So much so that they both erased the photos they had previously shared with each other. In addition, the country singer has unfollowed his wife on Instagram. He solely talked about, posted about, and promoted his new songs and album.
The duo also didn’t make any special Valentine’s Day uploads. Instead, he shared a photo with his male pals, while his wife shared a photo of her new hair color.
To add to the confusion, Taylor shared a video of her daughter and requested her fans not to question her relationship with Upchurch in the comment. She expressed herself as follows:
Please do not inquire as to whether Ryan and I are still together. This is a post about my kid.
While all of the evidence suggested that the couple had broken up, one Instagram post from Taylor’s best friend, Haylee Dickerson, suggested otherwise. She shared a snapshot with Taylor on January 2, 2021, and mentioned that the photo was taken by Ryan Upchurch.
Why not have two posts in one day? Thank you to our photographer, @ryanupchurch.
There’s a chance the duo hasn’t broken up yet. Nothing can be said with certainty until the ‘Outlaw’ singer or his wife speak on the subject.
Ryan Upchurch and Brianna Vanvleet: What Happened?
Around 2015, Upchurch and Brianna Vanvleet were dating. They got engaged, and in a now-deleted Facebook post, he dedicated a passionate letter to his fiancée.
Addressing that he got obsessed with his job, Upchurch vocalized that his business may badly affect his partner. Then he stated that she was the first thing that came to mind every day, even though this may not appear to be the case due to his demanding schedule.
I know you think I don’t give a damn sometimes, but I’m just working hard for the little Upchurches we’ll have one day.
He then announced his wish to marry Brianna and have “little brown Upchurch babies running about with fake tattoos all over” in a tweet in 2016.
The couple’s engagement and preparations to marry were called off, therefore the goal was never realized.
