Country crooner Dwight Yoakam tied the knot with his longtime fiancée Emily Joyce in an intimate wedding ceremony in March.

The 63-year-old and Joyce exchanged their nuptials in Santa Monica, Calif., in a ceremony that had fewer than 10 attendees, and those in the mix were seated at least six feet apart from each other.

A statement from Yoakam's publicist said the couple waited to announce the wedding until May out of respect to people affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
