Singer Holly Williams wed drummer Chris Coleman on Sunday, Sept. 27 in an evening ceremony at Nashville’s Cedarwood mansion. The bride wore a gown by Vera Wang, and the all-star guest list included Kid Rock, Rascal Flatts’s Jay DeMarcus, and of course, her father Hank Williams Jr. who walked her down the aisle. Among musician Coleman’s groomsmen was Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill.

The magazine reports that DeMarcus performed at the reception, as did Kid Rock who sang a few Bob Seger tunes as well as his own hit, “All Summer Long.” The bride and groom also took the stage for a version of Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.”

Taylor Swift is a guest on John Mayer’s upcoming new album, Battle Studies. It will be released on Nov. 17, 2009 by Columbia Records, and features Swift on a song called “Half of My Heart.” Mayer, a seven-time Grammy winner, co-produced his fourth album with Steve Jordan and it is described as having the warmth, melodies and simplicity of 70’s and 80’s California rock/pop. The album’s first single is “Who Says.”


Nashvillians Carrie Underwood, Kellie Pickler, Gloriana, Carter Twins and Miley Cyrus appear on the compilation A Very Special Christmas Volume 7, alongside Colbie Caillat, Charice, Vanessa Hudgens, Sean Kingston, Ashley Tisdale, and others. Set for release Nov. 24 through the Universal Music Enterprises, the album features original recordings of new and traditional Christmas songs. Selling one million copies in its first year, the premier 1987 album, A Very Special Christmas, and the subsequent albums in the series, have generated more than $100 million for Special Olympics, the most ever raised by a benefit recording series.
