Wade is a singer whose debut album Reckless came out in 2021 and reached number 8 on Billboard’s folk albums chart. Her second album Psychopath comes out in August of this year. She and Richards have been appearing in each other's photos on Instagram more and more often lately.
The two met in 2022 after Richards “stalked” Wade on Instagram “after listening to her music while driving solo from Utah to Colorado.” Richards posted a picture of the two, and several other friends out at dinner with the caption, “The most unlikely of friendships some may think but kinship knows no boundaries.”
Since then, the two have appeared several times on each other’s Instagrams, with the two going to the gym, going on vacations, and sitting in each other’s laps.
Other fans have noticed that Richards has recently been spotted without her wedding ring, but instead wearing a ring that looks very similar to one that Wade started wearing. The two also have similar heart tattoos, leading some fans to speculate they got them together.
Neither Wade nor Richards has spoken on the relationship, but Wade’s ex-girlfriend Kady Cannon seemingly gave her blessing to the relationship in a TikTok. “Only wish well for others, especially anyone you’ve ever shared your heart with,” what you put out comes back to you ten fold,” she said. “Get your happiness girl. You deserve it.”
