When did the pair meet?
Although not much is known about the beginning of their relationship, Jenn Marie and Justin married in 2013.
Justin Townes Earle spoke frequently about having a wife and managing his depression. He said about his marriage in 2017: “I find myself a lot more comfortable in life – I have a wonderful wife, and I don’t have all the same problems,
“I’m not looking inward all the time constantly. I have to pay attention to what’s going on around me more, because with a wife, I’m responsible for another person’s feelings. And I’m about to be responsible for another person’s life.
He said in 2019 “I’m a good father, but I’m a s***** husband. I’m built for the road; I don’t know what the hell to do at home.”
Did Justin Townes Earle and Jenn Marie have any children together?
Yes. Justin and Jenn Marie had their daughter Etta St. James Earle in 2017.
“As a singer/songwriter you tend to inhabit yourself a bit too much. And I do feel like I’m starting to get less in my head as a person and likewise as a writer.”
The couple moved from California to Portland ahead of the birth of their baby.
Earle spoke in 2019 about his thoughts about having a baby and how it changed his music.
He said, “My daughter is probably the reason I stopped writing songs that were so inward and started looking out into the world.
“I had to start worrying about the world because of her. I bought her a 9MM [gun] the day she was born because I’m frightened like hell for her.”
