Yoakam gets hitched
Monday, May 4, 2020
– Dwight Yoakam married his long-time girlfriend Emily Joyce, he revealed today.
Yoakam, 63, married Joyce, who he has dated for 10 years, in March in a church ceremony in California before less than 10 guests and prior to quarantines for COVID-19.
"Dwight Yoakam and Emily Joyce were married in March just prior to the quarantine in a private ceremony at St Monica Catholic Church in Santa Monica, California. 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-ten attendees were seated at least six feet from one another. The happy couple have been engaged for several years and have been dating since 2010. This belated announcement was withheld out of respect to so many people affected by and on the front lines of this pandemic."
