Tyler Rich may be an accomplished country artist, but his new wife Sabina Gadecki doesn’t exactly share his same vocal talents.
The singer who is 33 met up with PEOPLE on the red carpet of ABC’s 53rd Annual CMA Awards and chatted all about his wife’s passion for singing — even though she’s a tad bit tone-deaf, according to the singer.
“She loves to sing and she knows her voice is terrible,” he said. “She’s very vocal about it on Instagram. Everyone knows that voice.”
Gadecki, 35, an actress and model, agrees with her husband, whom she married in September at a music festival-themed wedding in Murfreesboro, Tennessee (the pair met at Stagecoach Music Festival in 2016).
She admitted, “I love singing more than anything, but I have the worst voice of all time, I know I do.” She also shared that this is the best gift he has ever given, the opportunity to let her sing her heart out on stage.”
She began saying that “He is performing with Brantley Gilbert on the Brantley Gilbert cruise, and he was on stage singing and He brought me on stage — and let me sing on that stage.”
“That was the best gift you had given me to allow me to sing next to you,” she said to Rich on the carpet.
The country star has admitted that it was certainly a special moment. “I thought it would be perfect to bring her out for her debut,” he said.
The couple was engaged for two years before tying the knot, in part due to the fact that their relationship is long-distance — between Los Angeles and Nashville — ever since they met.
Gadecki says she had traveled to the CMAs on a red-eye from Los Angeles as she didn’t want to miss the special event.
“I took a red-eye flight to get here because I was working yesterday. I didn’t sleep. I want to look cute next to him, but my eyes are red and I don’t feel like I look cute,” she said. The 53rd Annual CMA Awards will air live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Wednesday on ABC.
