His second marriage was to Shemane Deziel; they married on 21 January 1989, and have one child.
He was appointed to the Board of Directors of the National Rifle Association in 1995, a position that he currently holds.
In the late 1990s Nugent began writing for various magazines. He has written for over 20 publications and is the author of New York Times Best Seller books "God, Guns and Rock 'n' Roll" (July 2000), Kill It and Grill It (2002) (co-authored with his wife, Shemane). He also wrote the book "BloodTrails II: The Truth About Bowhunting" (2004).
In July 2005 Nugent said he was "getting real close to deciding to run" for governor of Michigan. On August 4, 2005 CNN reported that Nugent had withdrawn from the race for 2006, but was keeping his options open for 2010. Nugent also was rumored to be under consideration by the Illinois Republican Party as its candidate in that state's 2004 Senate race.
Ted also suffers from hearing loss. A November 2005 Rolling Stone article noted Nugent, among others, has publicly acknowledged hearing problems. According to Nugent, the hearing loss in his left ear is so complete that "It's just there for the looks. It doesn't work. I can't even talk on the phone with it."
