The Secret Behind Their Marriage
Lucus has opened up about her relationship with Toby during many chat shows and interviews. They both share a very cordial relationship. Lucus still remembers how they first met at an Oklahoma nightclub in 1981.
They fell in love at first sight and dated for three years. They married each other in 1984. However, before their marriage, Lucus became a mother to Toby’s first child, Shelley, in 1980. The duo share three children. Life was not as easy for them as it is now.
Tricia mentioned that Toby only worked in an oil field during their marriage. His income was not enough to sustain a family of five. But soon after that, Toby pursued his passion and focused on music.
Tricia supported him at every step. While Toby worked a day in and out to make his career, Tricia raised their family and made ends meet. As his first album ‘Should’ve Been a Cowboy’ was released, Toby instantly became a star in 1993.
Since then, there has been no looking back for them as Toby became a well-known music legend with thousands of gold and platinum albums to his account.
When they look back, they realize that their love and support for each other have made them cross all the hurdles over time. It wasn’t easy for them, but they made it through. Their children have been married off and have made them grandparents as well. Life is full of surprises for them.
In 2022, Keith was diagnosed with cancer. But as always, he found Lucus to be present by his side. Their love story is something to cherish and take note of. They continue to be the most loved couple in the town.
