FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – Captain and Tennille, the popular 1970s married pop duo that sang of sharing forever and of love keeping them together, are splitting.
Cathryn Antoinette Tennille, 73, better known as Toni, has filed in an Arizona court to end her 38-year marriage to Daryl Dragon, 71, or The Captain. The two already are listed as ex-husband and ex-wife on their website, which says while their marriage appeared to be rock-solid, almost all people naturally evolve over time, (and) sometimes hidden feelings start to be uncovered.
The divorce petition says the couple’s marriage is irretrievably broken. They were married the same year their hit song, Love Will Keep Us Together, earned a Grammy award for record of the year in 1975.
Tennille’s attorney declined to comment Thursday, and a call to Dragon’s number in Prescott where the couple retired in 2008 went unanswered.
