Jewel Marries Longtime Beau Ty Murray
Jewel's publicist says the U.S. singer-songwriter has married rodeo star Ty Murray.
Jewel and Murray, who never formally announced their engagement, eloped to the Bahamas and wed in a private ceremony Thursday night, her representative told People magazine exclusively.
People said the newlyweds have been together for a decade and share a 2,200-acre ranch in Texas.
Murray was the host of "Ty Murray's Celebrity Bull-Riding Challenge" on CMT last year, while Jewel was recently a celebrity judge on NBC's "Nashville Star." Jewel has also acted in the 1999 film "Ride with the Devil."
