Just when you thought you couldn’t love The Band Perry any more … This happens. The superstar sibling trio recently stepped up to help with funeral expenses to bury a mother and eight children who were tragically killed in a house fire in Greenville, Kentucky. Only two family members — the father, Chad J. Watson, and an 11-year-old girl — survived the fire Thursday morning.
The Perry siblings’ representatives contacted the Watson family and offered to take care of all the expenses and also offered to pay hotel expenses for family members staying near the medical center where the two surviving Watsons are being treated. A family friend stated, “I don’t know why The Band Perry reached out to the family other than they are just very gracious. The family doesn’t have any personal connection to the band before now.”
Congratulations are in order for Rodney Atkins and Rose Falcon, who married this weekend past weekend. The duo of country singers married on Sunday, November 10, in an intimate ceremony on Captiva Island, Florida.
Among the 20 guests in attendance were Atkins’ son Elijah, who served as Best Man. Additionally, Charles Hutchins, the founder of the Holston United Methodist Home for Children (where Atkins lived prior to adoption), officiated the ceremony.
The wedding programs were made from CD cases, while female guests received a handmade bracelet. The male guests received custom baseball guests identical to Atkins’. Prior to the ceremony, the guests spent November 9th fishing in the waters surrounding Captiva Island.
Congratulations to the happy newlyweds!
The final Pistol Annie is officially off the market! Congrats are in order for Ashley Monroe, who wed her longtime boyfriend, John Danks of the Chicago WhiteSox. The pair married on Thursday evening, October 24, at Blackberry Farms in Knoxville, Tennessee. The ceremony was held at the same location as Kelly Clarkson‘s picturesque wedding just four days earlier, and included the bride arriving at the ceremony via horse-drawn carriage in a custom Haute Hippie gown while her groom wore Armani.
The wedding was officiated by Blake Shelton, while the bride’s best friend and the officiant’s wife, Miranda Lambert, served as maid of honor. “They’re my dearest friends,” Monroe told PEOPLE. “And we wanted someone with personality to marry us!”
And Ashley was no bridezilla leading up to the wedding. “Miranda was the one who cared about all the details!” said Monroe to PEOPLE. “It was magical.”
Congrats to the happy couple!
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!
And in case you missed the pictures by Archetype Studio, Inc., check them out:
Mike Gossin of Gloriana (Tom’s brother) was one of his best men, along with older brother, Steve, while the band’s front-woman, Rachel Reinert, was one of the bride’s attendants. She wore a custom-made tuxedo corset in her role as “groomslady.”
“The attention to detail was amazing,” Reinert told PEOPLE. “Every little detail was so pretty, everywhere you looked was something of the period, all 1920s, Prohibition era, Art Deco themed. It was perfect!”
Congrats to the happy couple!
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.
Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum welcomed Baby Eisele Kay with husband Chris Tyrell on July 22nd. Today, the very first Baby Antebellum was introduced to the world, via Hillary’s Twitter. She sure is cute! Congrats to the happy family!
The Band Perry has a lot to sing about these days! From their critical acclaim to their radio hits to their first headlining tour, the singing siblings are at the top of their game. Now, the trio’s front-woman, Kimberly, has even more to celebrate. On Monday night, the 30 year-old got engaged to J.P. Arencibia of the Toronto Blue Jays.
Although it was a surprise to Perry, Arencibia enlisted her family to help orchestrate the perfect proposal. She revealed the adorable details to the Tennessean, including how he did it, why it lived up to her dreams and even what she wore. “I got to read the letter (from her family) and get dressed and put on my grandfather’s bracelet,” she said. “I came back out on the front porch and he was standing there and he got down on one knee. It was perfect.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
