Jewel and her longtime boyfriend, rodeo champion Ty Murray, eloped to the Bahamas and exchanged vows in a private ceremony on Thursday night, her rep told People magazine.

"She wore a traditional wedding gown, while Ty wore his favorite blue jeans, white shirt and cowboy hat," said Jewel's rep. "The couple is very happy and look forward to enjoying their honeymoon."

The pair, who never announced an engagement, have been together for 10 years and share a 2,200-acre ranch in Stephenville, Texas.

Murray, 38, who hosted Ty Murray's Celebrity Bull-Riding Challenge on CMT last year, currently stars in the video for his wife's new country single, "I Do."

At a charity event in Nashville days before the wedding, Jewel, 34, said of marriage, "It's something that needs to be taken seriously."
