Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland marries boyfriend Justin Miller

Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland is married

Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles has tied the knot with her entrepreneur boyfriend, Justin Miller.

The country star and her new husband were married Saturday near the Smoky Mountains in Tennesee, People reported. 

Nettles, 37, wore Alexander McQueen (a la Kate Middleton, now Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge) at an intimate chapel ceremony that included bandmate Kristian Bush. But the newlyweds will likely have to put their honeymoon plans on hold, as Sugarland will be performing at the Grammy Nomination Concert Live on Wednesday and and then hosting the CMA Country Christmas Special on Thursday.

Miller, a former model who appeared in the video for the band's 2006 single "Want To" (watch it below) and attended the CMA Awards with Nettles earlier this month, have been dating for about two years. Nettles' divorce from first husband Todd Van Sickle, a club owner, was final in March 2007.

But concerts, wedded bliss and thank-you cards aren't the only items on this newlywed's to-do list. Sugarland is facing a newly filed lawsuit over an Indiana State Fair stage collapse last August that left seven dead and more than 40 others injured.

The lawsuit, filed Nov. 23 on behalf of 44 survivors and the families of four of the people killed, alleges that Sugarland "had supervisory authority and discretion" over the stage size and lighting system, among other concert-related aspects. The lawsuit said the duo "failed or refused to cancel the Sugarland concert despite inclement weather."
