We had a weekend wedding in the world of country music. I didn’t get invited to this one (either). John Rich and model Joan Bush were married in Nashville on Saturday, Dec. 6, 2008. I guess I shouldn’t feel too bad about not receiving an invitation – not too many other people did either.
According to the article on People Magazine’s web site, the marriage was held in the company of about two dozen family members, and a larger reception was held in the Nashville home (once owned by Barbara Mandrell), where John’s show “Gone Country” is being filmed.
To both of them, I say Congratulations and Best Wishes, and I really hope they will have a long, happy marriage. Something that seems rare among couples in any field of entertainment.
Here’s what People reported.
Country star John Rich married his longtime girlfriend, Joan Bush, Saturday evening in a small ceremony in Nashville, his rep confirms exclusively to PEOPLE.
The wedding between Rich, 34, one half of the duo Big & Rich and host of CMT’s Gone Country, and Bush, a former model who runs a Houston modeling agency, was attended by about two dozen family members.
A larger reception for friends was held at Nashville’s Fontanel Mansion, former home of singer Barbara Mandrell, and also a location for the taping of Gone Country.
Rich and Bush have been dating for more than five years, but have kept their relationship under the radar, not appearing together at official events or on red carpets, says a source familiar with the couple.
And here is a video that seemed appropriate for the weekend of John and Joan’s wedding –and it’s probably my favorite Big & Rich song.
