Kelly Clarkson is officially Kelly Blackstock: The singer married her fiance Brandon Blackstock yesterday at the idyllic Blackberry Farm in Tennessee.

Clarkson tweeted the news this afternoon, along with a handful of wedding pictures, which show the pair embracing on a wooden bridge and against a sprawling farm backdrop. "I'm officially Mrs. Blackstock," she wrote. "We got married yesterday at Blackberry Farms in TN, the most beautiful place ever!"

According to Us Weekly, Clarkson (who is working on her pilot's license) flew the pair in for the wedding. Due to the couple's intense work schedule (Blackstock works as a talent manager), their ceremony was planned as a small, intimate event.

"That is it," Clarkson told the magazine. "All we have time for! But we're happy with that." 

Blackstock, the stepson of country legend Reba McEntire, has two children (a 12-year-old daughter and a six-year-old son) from a previous marriage.

Clarkson, who is also working on a Christmas special, will be featured on the ABC fantasy series Once Upon a Time in an as-yet-undeteremined role. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, showrunner Ed Kitsis talked about their excitement upon hearing Clarkson's love of the show.

"We love Kelly Clarkson and she has been our biggest supporter since day one," he said. "We are so honored because at first. I heard that and I was like, 'That's not true!' and then someone sent us a tweet we got from her and I said, 'Oh, my God, really?'

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
