Country star Dwight Yoakam and Emily Joyce have married after a decade together.

A rep for the 63-year-old singer shared the news on Instagram this week that Yoakam and Joyce tied the knot at St. Monica Catholic Church in Santa Monica just before social distancing restrictions came into effect in March.

“At a time when there is so much uncertainty in the world, there are still happy moments,” read the caption on a pair of photos of the newlyweds. "In the face of shutdowns and social-distancing requirements, love prevailed, and the less than ten attendees were seated at least six feet from one another.”

Yoakam and Joyce have been in a relationship since 2010 and got engaged in 2016.

The “Guitar, Cadillacs” singer’s rep said the wedding announcement was “withheld out of respect to so many people affected by and on the front lines of this pandemic.”

Yoakam has kept his personal life out of the spotlight but it is believed that this is his first marriage.
