Ah, some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this. Congratulations are in order for Kelly Clarkson, who finally tied it up with Brandon Blackstock in Tennessee on Sunday. After months of gushing about her man, her ring, being in love, and all things wedding-related (except the idea of having an actual wedding), Clarkson and Blackstock are officially man and wife.
Kelly took to Twitter to share the happy news, tweeting, “I’m officially Mrs. Blackstock :) We got married yesterday at Blackberry Farms in TN, the most beautiful place ever!”
Earlier this year, the pair announced that they’d forego having Blake Shelton do double-duty as both minister and wedding singer in favor of a more intimate event. The two exchanged their vows in a small ceremony on Sunday at Blackberry Farms in the Smoky Mountains. The wedding was so intimate that Blackstock’s famous stepmama, Reba, wasn’t even in attendance. Instead, the two opted to have just their children (from Brandon’s first marriage) join them as they said “I do.”
The question now on everyone’s minds is when Baby Blackstocks will make an appearance. As has been reported as of late, the former “Miss Independent” has made it no secret that she intends to get pregnant immediately and wants Brandon to give her the gift of a baby for Christmas. Welp, that gives new meaning to the song title “Underneath the Tree.” Perhaps we’ll be hearing the sequel to Kelly’s song, “Tie It Up” in the next month or two, which will likely be entitled “Knock It Up.”
Congrats to the happy couple, and let the Blackstock baby watch commence … Now.
Kelly Clarkson finally got her big moment like this on Friday, December 14th, accepting a proposal (and huge rock) from boyfriend/talent manager/country-music-prince, Brandon Blackstock. The overjoyed pop-country star took to Twitter on Saturday afternoon, revealing the big news in a jubilant tweet. She tweeted, “I’M ENGAGED!!!!! I wanted y’all to know!! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever :)”
Her excitement continued a little bit later, when she revealed a photo of the huge new piece of bling taking up major real estate on her left hand. She wrote, “Everyone has been asking about my engagement ring, so here it is :) It’s a yellow canary diamond with diamonds around it and Brandon designed it with Johnathon Arndt!”
For those keeping score and playing six degrees of Kelly Clarkson, her ring was designed by the same guy who made Carrie Underwood‘s stunner, while her new fiance manages Blake Shelton, while being the stepson of Reba. Talk about some major country connections!
Congrats to the happy couple. We can’t wait to see wedding pics!
As you likely have heard, newlyweds Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock are expecting their first child together, which was announced weeks after their recent marriage. Kelly has revealed in recent interviews, as well as through social media, that the pregnancy has not been easy on her body thus far, and that she has been experiencing her fair share of related sickness.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Kelly apologized to her fans for being “incredibly ill” and hoped that she would be feeling back to normal soon. Kelly tweeted “I’m so sorry 2 all my fans overseas 4 not doing promo 4 my Xmas album. I have been incredibly ill w/pregnancy. Hopefully it gets better soon.”
It’s wedded bliss throughout the Kelly Clarkson fandom!
As we posted yesterday, the multi-genre superstar tied it up with Starstruck talent manager, Brandon Blackstock, this weekend. Yesterday, the new Mrs. Blackstock shared a few amazingly gorgeous pictures from the day leaving all of us on cloud nine with her. And today, she erupted twitter when she shared a beautiful wedding video. It’s the sweetest thing ever.
We’re all kind of obsessed with all things Clarkson-Blackstock right now, and we don’t mind one bit!
We couldn’t be happier for Kelly. Congratulations again, Mr. & Mrs. Blackstock! Thank-you for sharing with us!
Here is the video by her videographer, Weiss Eubanks. It is set to “Heavenly Day” by Patty Griffin. Perfect!

Kelly Clarkson‘s current country single, “Tie It Up,” is seriously great. If you haven’t stopped by iTunes to grab it yet, you should. You won’t be disappointed.
Written by Shane McAnally, Ashley Arrison, and Josh Osborne, the single gives homage to Clarkson’s story with fiancé Brandon Blackstock and their life right now since they will soon be tying the knot!
Check out a behind-the-scenes video of the making of “Tie It Up.” There is one part where Clarkson is wailing like only she can (approximately 0:28-0:48). The song really showcases her amazing, goose-bump worthy range and pure tone. She’s the vocal queen.
McAnally says in the video, “Isn’t that the best thing you ever heard in your life?” Yes, it is… yes, it is!
Don’t worry! Kelly Clarkson is still marrying Brandon Blackstock! However, after spending an abundance of time (that this music industry couple just doesn’t have to spare) on wedding planning, Kelly and Brandon made the executive decision to scrap their big wedding plans and simply elope.
Kelly explained to People Magazine that between her Christmas album, partnership with State Farm, Brandon’s responsibilities as Blake Shelton‘s manager, and the couple raising two children (from Brandon’s previous marriage), there was no time to plan such an extravagant event. The couple intends to exchange vows in the presence of a minister and Brandon’s two children, but will be celebrating with their friends and family at their newly built Nashville home.
Kelly’s latest video for her country single, “Tie It Up,” premiered last week. You can check out the wedding-themed video here:
October is shaping up to be a busy month for Kelly Clarkson. She’ll wrap up her tour with Maroon 5, marry fiance Brandon Blackstock and release her first Christmas album. The pop-country phenom took to Twitter today to reveal the album’s cover, release date and title.
She tweeted: I have been dying to make this album since I was a kid! #WrappedInRed comes out Oct. 29th.
Earlier this year, she revealed that the album would feature collaborations with country royalty, including Ronnie Dunn on the classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” She told ABC News Radio, “He is like one of my favorite voices of all time. He’s so soulful, and that song, if you know Ronnie Dunn, is so his personality. Like, it’s straight up his personality to say all of that to try to get you to stay and have a drink.”
Additionally, she enlisted two country female powerhouses, Reba & Trisha Yearwood to join her on a track. “I can’t believe that Reba and Trisha agreed to do a trio with me on it. So, they’re doing ‘Silent Night,’ and it’s gonna be so epic. I’m so excited.”
We’re excited for Wrapped In Red! Are you?
Kelly Clarkson is getting married, y’all, and she wants the world to “Tie It Up” right along with her. Ever since announcing her engagement to Brandon Blackstock last December, Kelly’s been showing the world her softer side. First, she released “Don’t Rush” with Vince Gill and then she went on to release “Tie It Up,” her wedding-themed anthem. The video features Kelly in the role of wedding singer extraordinaire (who just happens to flash that giant sparkler a few times), mixed with wedding videos and fan photos.
Now, it’s time to kick off your shoes, grab a beverage and join her in this adorable celebration of wedding day bliss.
Watch the video here:
It’s no secret that Kelly Clarkson is one busy lady. She’s planning a tour with Maroon 5, prepping for a wedding to Brandon Blackstock and releasing infectious ear candy with each single. Her latest offering of country confection comes in the form of “Tie It Up,” a twangy tongue-in-cheek ode to courtship and wedding bells.
When she released the single cover, fans wondered who she was actually tied to. Was it her fiance or just some perfectly-manicured hand model? Clarkson revealed yesterday via video that the hand-in-question does in fact belong to her hubby-to-be. Judging from his adorable awkwardness in front of the camera, methinks he’ll be leaving most of the future modeling gigs to his bride.
And while she’s not being adorable in photo shoots, she continues her quest to slay every song you’ve ever heard and make it just a tad bit better. Click to see her become one of Mumford‘s honorary sons on this incredible version of “I Will Wait.”
