She may still be Miss Independent, but she now has a partner in crime to whom she's lawfully wedded! Kelly Clarkson married Brandon Blackstock yesterday, October 20, in Walland, Tennessee.
That "most beautiful place ever" is a luxury hotel and resort occupying 4,200 acres in the Great Smoky Mountains, as its website touts. If this wedding portrait is any indication, it does indeed look like a slice of heaven.
Kelly and her new hubby first started dating in February 2012, becoming engaged ten months later. Brandon is the son of Kelly's manager — and a talent manager in his own right — as well as the stepson of Reba McEntire.
The newlyweds didn't publicize the wedding date or location, but they did tip us off to their intentions on October 17 by obtaining a wedding license.
Kelly also got the Christmas season kicked off early, having released two singles this month from her new holiday album, Wrapped in Red — "White Christmas" and "Underneath the Tree." And we're sure she's looking forward to her first yuletide with a handsome husband!
