My beautiful daughter Molly was supposed to get married this coming November.

But she and John decided to elope instead, so that's what they did Friday evening.

They got married in the backroom of the Aztec Cafe, where they met 11 years ago, in front of just a handful of friends.

She let me and her mother know a few minutes after the vows were exchanged. I caught up with them at The Cowgirl -- though I had to rush off to do my radio show. (Yes, that's what my "Wedding Set" on The Santa Fe Opry was about.)

Speaking of which, I couldn't help but see a strange irony in the difference between a couple of classic country songs I played. There was "The Ceremony" by George & Tammy -- a very solemn, deadly serious and extremely corny song in which the couple exchange their vows. Then there's "Jackson" by Johnny & June -- irreverent, funny, sexy ...

George and Tammy split after a miserable few years together. Johnny and June stayed together more than 30 years. Til death did they part.

Maybe my daughter and my son-in-law instinctively knew that it might just be better to get married in a fever.

It's hard to believe that my little girl, my firstborn, is now a married woman. But she and John seem so happy that happiness is all I feel.

That and a little shock.

More pictures of this surprise development can be found HERE and HERE.
