Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott and drummer Chris Tyrrell have tied the knot!
"I'd like to introduce you to Mrs. Hillary Scott Tyrrell," Chris, who popped the question at sunset in East Tennessee last Fourth of July weekend, says in a video posted to Lady Antebellum's official website.
"We got married!" Scott, 25, says as she flashes a wedding ring. "We just wanted you to hear it from us first. We love you. We're so excited to be starting our life together and we just had to let you in on the exciting news."

A live performance at her upcoming nuptials sounds like the ultimate wedding gift from her Lady Antebellum band mates, but it didn't make Hillary Scott's wish list.
"I'm not asking them to sing or play an instrument. I'm not putting anybody I love to work on my wedding day," she tells December's Redbook magazine, referring to fellow country crooners Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley.
"I even told our band and crew that I know it's a weekend off that we would normally have, so if they want to take a vacation and not come, they're not going to hurt my feelings."

Lady Antebellum log a lot of together time on the road, where the trio share living quarters on the tour bus – but sometimes even best friends need a breather. For the group, that means spending a little alone time at their new Nashville homes.
The trio, who just released their third album, Own the Night, open their doors in the latest PEOPLE Country issue, showing off Hillary Scott's renovated bungalow (decorated with flea market finds and TJ Maxx deals), Charles Kelley's 2,700-sq- ft. colonial ("It's not too big, so it's manageable and perfect for us," he says) and Dave Haywood's 900-sq.-ft. urban loft (complete with windowless bedroom "so when I get off the bus, I can grab a few more hours of sleep in the middle of the day if I need to," he says).

Lady Antebellum's current hit "Just A Kiss" was inspired by the budding relationship between singer Hillary Scott and drummer Chris Tyrrell, after the pair met on the Tim McGraw tour in early 2010.
As Scott, 25, told Billboard, "There is so much excitement at the beginning of a new relationship ... This song is about one of those times when your brain kicks in and tells your heart, 'Good things are worth waiting for.' "
The wait ended over Fourth of July weekend, when Tyrrell, 24, proposed to Scott as the sun was setting over a lake in East Tennessee, the couple tell PEOPLE exclusively.
"Chris proposed exactly the way I've always dreamed," Scott shares. "Our families were close by, but it was just us out on a beautiful deck overlooking a lake in East Tennessee. We had just been on a hike and – in our workout clothes – he hit the knee! We feel so blessed by God that He sent us each other, and we are looking so forward to forever together!”

Sunday night was ladies' night at the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.
Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum – co-ed trio Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood – clocked in the most wins as the spirit of Nashville filled the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. But the night's highest honor went to Taylor Swift, who was crowned entertainer of the year.
"I'm just losing my mind," Swift, 21, told the audience after her big win. "The fact that this is from the fans makes its so beautiful."
