NASHVILLE, Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Country singer John Rich and his longtime girlfriend, former model Joan Bush, were married in Nashville, his spokesperson confirmed.

About two-dozen family members attended the Saturday night nuptials while a larger crowd celebrated at a later reception at the Fontanel Mansion, People reported on its Web site.

Rich, half of the duo Big and Rich and host of CMT's "Gone Country," had been dating Bush, who runs a Houston modeling agency, for more than five years.
