Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott wed Love and Theft drummer Chris Tyrell in a ceremony in upstate New York on Saturday. Scott, 25, announced the marriage to her fans with a video on the Lady Antebellum website. "We got married! We just wanted you to hear it from us first," Scott gushed to fans after showing off her wedding ring.

Scott and Tyrell met when their bands were touring together as opening acts on Tim McGraw's Southern Voice tour in 2010. Tyrell proposed over Fourth of July weekend last year while the two were on vacation in Tennessee.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
