Jewel marries rodeo star in Bahamas

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Pop singer Jewel eloped with her rodeo-star boyfriend in the Bahamas on Thursday, People magazine reported. The 34-year-old singer married Ty Murray, 38, during a private ceremony, the magazine said, quoting Jewel’s publicist.

Jewel said on her Web site on Wednesday that she and Murray were heading to the Caribbean islands for six days with two friends.

The pair, who live on a ranch in Texas, had been together for more than a decade. Jewel, whose last name is Kilcher, achieved fame in the mid-1990s with such pop-folk tunes as “Who Will Save Your Soul” and “Foolish Games.” She recently released a country album and served as a judge on the TV talent show “Nashville Star.”

Murray is a legend on the rodeo circuit, winning the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association’s All-Around world championship title a record seven times.
