Kelly Clarkson’s Wedding Will Be Earthy and Texas-Inspired
Kelly Clarkson is now a Nashville resident, but the engaged superstar will honor her Texas roots when it comes to the specifics of her wedding ceremony.
Clarkson is planning a “earthy outdoor fall wedding,” complete with yellow roses, People reports. The flower has become synonymous with Texas pride because of the traditional love song ‘The Yellow Rose of Texas,’ which was inspired by events of the Texas Revolution.
Unlikely recent engagement stories from other country music singers, Clarkson’s was rather low-key, but still just as endearing. “[I had] not a damn clue,” the singer recalls. She and her fiance, Brandon Blackstock, were just lounging around their Nashville home when he popped the question.
“If I did I would have worn something besides Uggs and a sweatshirt with no bra,” Clarkson confesses.
So far, Clarkson has admitted that she wants an outdoor fall wedding, but has remained hushed regarding further details. She does, however, have the entertainment lined up for the reception.
“Blake [Shelton] is going to play at our reception,” she shares. “We’re very excited.”
And if Shelton has to cancel for whatever reason, Clarkson’s future mother-in-law, Reba McEntire, will be warmed up and waiting in the wings. “And speaking of the engagement, since you are going to be my daughter-in-law, I’m singing at the wedding, right??” McEntire tweeted following Clarkson’s engagement just before Christmas.
Yes, life is good for Kelly Clarkson — even she admits that she “didn’t know life could be this happy.” Aside from her pending nuptials, the pop-country superstar is at the top of her game, professionally. Clarkson is currently promoting her first hits collection, ‘Greatest Hits – Chapter One,’ and is the most-nominated solo female artist at the upcoming 2013 Grammy Awards for her pop mega hit, ‘Stronger.’
