Jewel, Ty Murray

Rick Diamond/

He was meant for her—but their wedding wasn't meant for anyone else.

Folk-country songbird Jewel finally scored herself a last name this week, eloping to the Bahamas and quietly tying the knot Thursday night with longtime rodeo champ beau Ty Murray.

"She wore a traditional wedding gown, while Ty wore his favorite blue jeans, white shirt and cowboy hat," the singer's rep told People.

Well, you can take the cowboy out of Texas...

"The couple is very happy and look forward to enjoying their honeymoon."

While the singer's rep was the one to confirm the nuptial news, Jewel herself blogged about her pending trip just Wednesday—her last full day as a singleton.

"Well I'm off to the Bahamas!" she wrote in a post on her official site. "Ty and I have a 6 day vacation and we are going with our good friends…Now that Nashville Star is wrapped up, and the Brad tour is on a mini-break, I have a few days to get away, and I'm ready!

"Gosh—I'm excited…"

Wonder why.

The twosome, who never announced an engagement, has been together for 10 years. The 34-year-old singer and the 38-year-old professional cowboy currently cohabitate on a 2,200-acre ranch in Stephenville, Texas.

They recently collaborated on a professional level as well, with Murray starring in the music video for Jewel's new single, the aptly titled "I Do."
