Following the disappearance of Backroad Anthem singer Craig Strickland during a hunting trip, family and friends – including the country star’s wife Helen – launched a weeklong search for the 29-year-old. Sadly, efforts came to an end on Jan. 4 when Strickland’s lifeless body was found in Oklahoma. “I love you with all my heart Craig Michael,” Helen wrote on Instagram shortly after news broke.
LOVERS & FRIENDS
Craig and Helen were never shy when it came to giving fans an inside look at their relationship; the former Miss Arkansas and country singer would regularly post romantic photos and captions on social media.
The two were also big fans of chill nights in, as evidenced by one of Helen’s most recent snapshots: “Date nights don’t get any better than this!” she wrote of watching Star Wars with her husband.
It was no secret the pair was crazy about each other. Married a little more than one year, Craig and Helen happily shared intimate photos from their big day on Instagram often.
No adventure was too big or small for the duo, who relished in activities like low-key golf games and hours-long road trips.
RED CARPET READY
Craig and Helen would always shine bright at high-profile events, like the Miss USA 2015 pageant.
