Kristin Chenoweth has captured fans’ attention on stage for years, appearing in beloved Broadway shows like Wicked, but behind the scenes, someone stole her heart: Nashville-based musician Josh Bryant.
Their relationship started with a wedding — actually, two weddings. The duo met first in 2016 at a wedding for the Holidate star’s niece. Bryant’s band, Backroad Anthem, was booked to perform. Two years later, Chenoweth’s nephew tied the knot and Backroad Anthem provided the musical entertainment, forcing Chenoweth and Bryant’s paths to cross once more.
The actress explained how she met and eventually got together with Bryant during an appearance on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show.
“I noticed him and he noticed me, but we were dating other people. And then, the next summer, my nephew gets married and hires the same band and we re-met,” Chenoweth recalled.
Bryant eventually proposed to Chenoweth in October 2021, and on Sept. 2, 2023, the couple wed in Texas.
Here’s everything to know about Kristin Chenoweth’s husband, Josh Bryant.
Bryant grew up in Arkansas but currently lives in Nashville part-time with Chenoweth and their fur babies.
He is a musician, While appearing on The Jess Cagle Show, Chenoweth revealed that Bryant is a “talented musician.” He plays guitar — a skill he often shows off on social media.
In 2012, he and his friends started the band Backroad Anthem. The country-rock group performed in clubs and venues across the country. They also opened for Chris Young, Josh Turner and Eli Young Band.
Chenoweth and Bryant met for the first time at her niece’s wedding and became friends. Almost two years later, Chenoweth’s nephew got married and also booked Backroad Anthem for his nuptials.
Bryant regularly shares sweet Instagram snaps of Thunder, one of the dogs he has with Chenoweth. He also shows off their other pets, including a cat named Mouse and another dog they share.
For Thanksgiving in 2020, he posted a photo of himself, Chenoweth, Thunder and Mouse on Instagram and included some kind words for the actress in the caption.
In August 2021, Chenoweth appeared podcast where she spoke about Bryant. The stage actress revealed that Bryant had never experienced a Broadway musical in person at the time. She had big plans to change that.
Bryant popped the question to Chenoweth in October 2021. The couple got engaged on the rooftop of the Rainbow Room in New York City and enjoyed dinner at Fresco by Scotto after the proposal.
“I’ve been the runaway bride,” Chenoweth joked. “Now that I’ve found him, I won’t let him go. I will race to greet him at the altar.”
Bryant added, “My best friend and soulmate said ‘YES’ to me! Kristin is my world, my everything, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her!”
