Grammy Winner Dwight Yoakam Secretly Weds Longtime GF Emily Joyce
Country singer Dwight Yoakam, 63, and photographer Emily Joyce are married after 10 years together!
Just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S., the couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Santa Monica.
In a statement on his Instagram, Yoakam's rep said, “Dwight Yoakam and Emily Joyce wed in March just before the quarantine in a private ceremony at St. Monica Catholic Church in Santa Monica. At a time when there is so much uncertainty in the world, there are still happy moments."
“In the face of shutdowns and social-distancing requirements, love prevailed, and the less than 10 attendees were seated at least six feet from one another,” the statement continued. “This belated announcement was withheld out of respect to so many people affected by and on the front lines of this pandemic.”
The pair had been engaged for “several years.”
Amid the pandemic, Yoakam is still hosting his Sirius XM radio show, chatting with big names like Post Malone.
This is the first marriage for Dwight, who has previously been linked to Sharon Stone, Karen Duffy, Bridget Fonda and Wynonna Judd.
Yoakam, who has won two Grammys, is known for hits like “Honky Tonk Man,” “Fast as You," "A Thousand Miles from Nowhere," "Turn It On, Turn It Up, Turn Me Loose," "Ain't That Lonely Yet," and "If There Was a Way."
