As a music fiend, Bradley often takes it to Instagram to share photographs capturing the iconic places he visited and to express his appreciation for artists like Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey, Rob Baird, or Willie Nelson. 

Arguably, the love of everything country-related is just one of the things Bradley and Chrissy have in common. While Bradley spent more than two decades managing recording artists, Chrissy released hit country songs like "Talking to God."

As Bradley's latest Instagram posts reveal, he and Chrissy embarked on romantic dates to places like Tom Petty's childhood home at 1715 NE Sixth Terrace in Gainesville, Fla., and much beyond. 

To celebrate Chrissy's 40th birthday on Sept. 29, Bradley penned a heart-warming Instagram post reminding his girlfriend of how much she means to him.

"Happy Birthday to my love, Chrissy. From our first date in May, you've had me #Metzmerized with love, laughter and kindness. You're not the best thing that's happened during quarantine; you're the best that's ever happened to me. I love you. You the Best!" Bradley wrote.
