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.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
