After dating fellow musician Jessie Baylin for over three years, Kings of Leon drummer, Nathan Followill has finally tied the know to the woman of his dreams. The pair married in an outdoor ceremony on Saturday, November 14 at Wolf Den Farm in Brentwood, Tenn. (located at 9795 Split Log Road), followed by a night of barn-dancing. Guests enjoyed food catered for by local Nashville restaurant Miel, while the couple’s first dance was to an instrumental Hawaiian lap steel guitar tune.
The band’s representative said: “The wedding was beautiful. It was a gorgeous, 70-degree day. It was a very love-affirming wedding with lots of warmth and happiness.” Nathan Followill was heard saying Saturday morning, “This time tomorrow night I will be wearing some new jewelry. I’m so excited for tomorrow. A new day, a new life, and a new wife. Thanks Jess.”” I wonder if Nathan had known about the Disney engagement rings would he have bought Baylin one?
In a Twitter post the morning after their wedding, Nathan wrote, ‘I woke up with a married woman in my bed this morning – Luckily she was mine.’ The 25-year-old Jessie Baylin spread the news on Twitter: “Allow myself to introduce myself: Mrs Jessie B. Followill.”
His bandmates — brothers Caleb and Jared Followill and cousin Matthew Followill — attended the wedding in Tennessee on Saturday, November 14, 2009. So did actress Scarlett Johansson, a high school friend of the bride.
Followill’s band, Kings of Leon, has skyrocketed in popularity recently (to the dismay of longtime fans…) with the release of their latest album, Only by the Night, late last year. Their long-haired, whiskey-infused mix of pop-rock, blues and southern twang has won over many a listener.
