Kelly Clarkson is getting ready to tie the knot to her longtime beau, music manager Brandon Blackstock. It turns out that Blackstock is Blake Shelton‘s manager, and Shelton himself will be officiating the ceremony.
“He’s not only singing, he’s marrying us,” Clarkson revealed to Entertainment Tonight, referring to the country singer as “Reverend Blake.”
“He totally is,” she added, “he’s done it before with people.”
Shelton has apparently played a big role in Clarkson’s relationship with Blackstone, saying he urged his manager to propose to the pop singer.
“I told Brandon, ‘Man, you need to grow up and figure out that you need to marry this girl. I am going on the record saying, ‘I will do the music at the wedding or whatever you want to do, I’ll be that guy,’” Shelton revealed. “‘I will play for four hours if I have to, ’cause you need to get your head out of your ass and ask that girl to marry you.’”
Clarkson is staying pretty quiet on the rest of her wedding details. The singer did reveal that she has picked out the month, but the specific date has been changing because of conflicting schedules. The one thing she has knocked off her to-do list is buying the dress. Clarkson said she picked out her gown “pretty quick.”
