Kellie Pickler is married!

Country songs may be a bit more uplifting in 2011 now that all of the industry’s female stars are walking down the aisle. Kellie Pickler just joined friend Carrie Underwood and fellow singer Shania Twain in happily-married-land (and Miranda Lambert’s up next!)

"Yes, it's true," Pickler tweeted at 3 p.m. Tuesday. "@kylecjacobs and I said 'I Do!' Thank you Jesus!"

The former "American Idol" contestant wed songwriter Kyle Jacobs in a secret ceremony on January 1 on a private island in the Caribbean. The couple got engaged in June 2010 on a Florida beach after 2 ½ years of dating.

No other details were made public, but Pickler shared some of her wedding plans with PEOPLE in August.

"I'm thinking of having the python be the ring bearer!" Pickler joked. "We've been talking about incorporating the dogs. They're like our kids, but we wouldn't want an accident to happen down the aisle."

The intimate ceremony might have happened in a church, as the couple is religious and called outdoor ceremonies “a risk.” But one tradition they may not have followed is the first dance.

“I don't want to do the dance," Pickler said. "It's embarrassing! I don't want everyone staring at me. Kyle cannot dance, and I cannot dance. [Kyle] thinks he [can dance], but it's a disaster. He's a snapper ... he just sways back and forth and snaps his fingers."

      and no wonder the world is in such a mess...wishing someone's marriage to fail because of some bad movie?...why are people so stupid?..not sure if you know this but people can tell the level of your stupidity through what you write...we all cant be intellegent but please at least be decent....I watched Kelly Pickler on American Idol and listen to her songs sometimes but I dont know her personal, I dont know the guy either but I wish them well....
