Congratulations are in order for country singer Gary Allan!

Singer-songwriter Gary Allan, 56, wed his long-time love, Molly Martin, in a private ceremony on February 5th, 2024. The couple had been engaged for over two years and spontaneously decided to tie the knot at the Sumner County majors office in Gallatin, Tennessee, with just the officiant, who was the mayor himself, and the photographer as witnesses.

The “Watching Airplanes” singer told PEOPLE:

“Molly and I had been trying to find the right time and right spot to get married, and we just decided the time was now. We just didn’t want to keep waiting.”

He added they they may choose to have a larger celebration down the road, but for the time being, they are “happy to be husband and wife.”
