(CBS NEWS) – Kelly Clarkson has tied the knot. The singer married Brandon Blackstock over the weekend in Tennessee, she confirmed Monday via Twitter.

Back in August, Clarkson, 31, said she and Blackstock had called off their original wedding plans, opting instead for something more low-key.

“Our whole life is a celebration,” she told People at the time. “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.'”

The couple got engaged in December after dating for almost a year.

Blackstock, 35, a Nashville-based talent manager and stepson of country singer Reba McEntire, has two children from a previous marriage.
