John Rich reportedly got hitched over the weekend.
The Nashville Star judge and Gone Country star wed longtime girlfriend Joan Bush on Saturday evening in a small Nashville ceremony, his representative toldPeople.
The ceremony between the Big & Rich singer and former model -- who currently runs a Houston modeling agency -- was attended by roughly two dozen family members, according to People.
It was followed by a larger reception for friends at Nashville's Fontanel Mansion, the former Barbara Mandrell 27,000-square-foot log home where Gone Country films.
The couple had been dating for more than five years before tying the knot.
Rich's wedding represents the second this year for a sixth-season Nashville Star judge. Earlier this year, Jewel and her longtime boyfriend Ty Murray eloped to the Bahamas and were wed in a private August ceremony.
