At a sunset ceremony Thursday evening with Tennessee's Smoky Mountains in the background, country singer Ashley Monroe wed her baseball beau, Chicago White Sox pitcher John Danks.
"I married my best friend," says Monroe, 27, a Knoxville, Tenn., native who met Danks through a mutual friend in 2011 after a show in Chicago. "He has such a good heart."
Blake Shelton officiated the nuptials, which took place at Blackberry Farm, the same bucolic site where Kelly Clarkson said "I do" four days before, while Monroe's best friend (and fellow member of the Pistol Annies) Miranda Lambert was her maid of honor.
