Maddie & Tae's Taylor Dye Marries Songwriter Josh Kerr

Maddie & Tae's Taylor Dye married songwriter Josh Kerr at Ruby in Nashville, Tennessee, last Friday.

Dye took to Instagram on Saturday to announce the news. "My person for life. I am madly in love with you @joshkerrmusic // 2.21.20," she wrote.

"Wife, my forever, my best friend," Kerr captioned a set of wedding photos.

Earlier this month, Dye shared some photos on Instagram from her bachelorette party and later followed it up with a peek at her wedding invitations.

Last week, Dye's bandmate Maddie Marlow shared a photo on Instagram that showed Dye and Kerr dancing, at what appears to be Dye's bachelorette party.

"The countdown is on, LETS GET THIS CHICK MARRIED!!" Marlow captioned the post.

The couple got engaged on September 2, 2019, and shared the news on social media the following day.

"I'm engaged to the man of my dreams y'all," Dye captioned the post and added that they plan to live in Franklin, Tennessee.

Kerr shared a photo and captioned it: "Bought the house. got the ring. asked her dad. got the girl. Forever started Sept 2nd. I love you (Taylor Dye)." Kerr co-wrote Kelsea Ballerini's previous singles "Love Me Like You Mean It" and "Dibs" as well as Dylan Scott's "My Girl."

Maddie & Tae, who released a five-song EP, One Heart to Another, last year, will be releasing their next album, The Way it Feels, on April 10.

Baby Ames joins the couple's first child, 3-year-old Asher James. Ames was born in Nashville, Tennessee, and weighed 6 lbs., 7 oz. and measured 19.5 inches long.

Posting a few pictures of the newborn baby and the family on his Instagram page, Mooney wrote, "Ames Alexander, Welcome to the Mooney Family. Asher has been so excited to meet you, 'baby brover.' You are already so loved. I'm so proud to be you dad. And you have have the best momma on planet earth."

He added, "Yesterday, Asher asked Hannah when baby brother's mom was gonna come pick him up and take him to his house...so we might be in for a slight rude awakening. Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes."

Mooney and Hannah welcomed their first son, Asher James, in January of 2017, and they married in October of that year.

"Welcome to our lives, Ames Alexander. The world is already a brighter place because you're in it! Oh, how your daddy and I have prayed over your precious life. I can't believe God chose us to love you forever, but I'm sure glad He did. Now, let the adventures begin!" Hannah added.
