Kelly Clarkson is officially married to Brandon Blackstock, stepson of legendary country artist, Reba McEntire. This officially puts to rest rumors that their wedding has been canceled and that McEntire was feuding with the young singer. Check out a link to the photos from the special day.
The first ever American Idol winner officially tied the knot over the weekend. The wedding ceremony was a small but lovely affair, as E! News reports:
“The Grammy winner married talent manager Brandon Blackstock in a small ceremony in Tennessee over the weekend, E! News has confirmed. Clarkson broke the news via Twitter on Monday, Oct. 21, writing, ‘I'm officially Mrs. Blackstock. We got married yesterday at Blackberry Farms in TN, the most beautiful place ever!’”
Of course, it didn’t always look like the couple was going to be wed. At one point, Kelly became overwhelmed with planning the nuptials, telling PEOPLE:
"We just got so overwhelmed by it--all the decisions. I have a Christmas record coming out. I'm doing a bunch of stuff with State Farm right now. We have two kids who just started school. We're going to all these football games and soccer games and volleyball games and [Brandon]'s got one of the biggest artists [Blake Shelton] in country music. He's flying everywhere."
The Examiner also claimed that Reba was blown away by the decision. The publication insisted that McEntire tried convincing Kelly otherwise. A source (who probably doesn’t even exist) told the tab:
“Reba told Kelly she knows wedding plans can get overwhelming, but she’s shortchanging both herself and her family by not making their wedding a big day for everyone. To Reba, Kelly is cheating everyone out of a special event they can all share in.”
These were never Clarkson’s sentiments, as she expressed in an earlier interview that:
"Our whole life is a celebration. That's what we kept laughing about. We don't need another day where we throw a big party. Our lives are so in the spotlight all the time. Everything is such a spectacle, we were like, 'We would rather have an intimate moment that's special.'”
