Gettin’ Married: Joanna Smith Weds Longtime Boyfriend, Becomes Jo Eldridge

Joanna Smith Wedding
Savannah Dunson

Singer Joanna Smith is off the market! Smith wed her longtime boyfriend in an intimate ceremony over the weekend, officially becoming Jo Eldridge in the process.

The songstress, donning a beautiful, long, white spaghetti-strapped gown, married Tripp Eldridge in a small ceremony. She paired her dress with silver jewelry and even put a thin belt over her wedding dress, giving her a casual, yet glamorously country look. Smith and Eldridge — shown here — are all smiles while cutting their cake during the wedding.

Ironically, Smith has a single called ‘Gettin’ Married.’ Following its release she dropped two more singles in ‘Georgia Mud’ and ‘We Can’t Be Friends’ with Columbia Records Nashville before the label restructured and put her on BNA Records. That label closed, and she was again moved — this time to RCA Records. There she released the song ‘Girls Are Crazy.’ Now that the Georgia native has a new name, she’s ready to keep playing her music, despite her label changes.

Congratulations to Jo Eldridge and her now husband, Tripp. We wish you both the best!
