NASHVILLE, Tenn. – As revealed on People.com, "Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Jenny Tolman and GRAMMY-nominated producer Dave Brainard long prayed for a picture-perfect setting for their outdoor wedding. And this past Saturday, March 19, that's exactly what they received."
"The weather was absolutely perfect," raved Tolman in an interview with People.comfollowing her Jackson, Wyo. wedding to Brainard. "The sun was out and there were no clouds covering the Tetons. The day before, it snowed in Jackson, so we had a beautiful fresh layer of snow. It was the most perfect weather you could ask for!"
Ahead of her nuptials, Tolman unveiled her sophomore album Married in a Honky Tonk on March 4 following a show-stopping performance at her standing-room only album release show in Nashville.
The Tennessean exclusively premiered the video to the albums title track days before the wedding, which was shot at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in Jackson, Wyo. Jackson has become a special place for Tolman and Brainard. As featured on People.com, the pair got engaged in Jackson in October of 2020 after four years of dating.
With Married in a Honky Tonk, Tolman vows to join the colorful characters of the fictional 'Jennyville' with her own real-life experiences. The release of her sophomore album marks a turning point for the singer and is the second collaboration with Brainard.
The Nashville native has received critical-acclaim for her masterful storytelling found in the lyrics of her songs and co-wrote every song on the new album. From the spirited, tongue-firmly-in-cheek “Home to Roost" to poignant lines like Sometimes the only reason/I think this heart of mine keeps beating/Is so I can go on wishing you were here (“Nothing Left of You”) to the moving-on optimism of I’ll breathe in a brand-new day/ And exhale your memory in “Sweetest Revenge” Tolman marries humor, sorrow and resilience.
