GAC sends congratulations to Clara Henningsen of The Henningsens and her new husband, Jacob Calaway! The pair were married Saturday, May 4, on the Henningsen family farm in Illinois amid a light rain.
“It was really cool because I got married on our family farm, in Illinois, and it’s such a special thing because, like the Miranda Lambert song says, that’s pretty much the house that built me and where I was raised and where I grew up,” Clara said. “It’s really where I wanted to get married.”
The wedding, like their music, was a family affair. “Our wedding party was a total of 14 people – not including the bride and the groom and the little ring-bearers and the flower girls,” Clara said. “All my sisters were in the wedding and Jacob’s brother and all my cousins and best friends I grew up with were also in the wedding. It was very special.”
The newlyweds will have to wait a few weeks before embarking on their honeymoon. The family trio will hit the road with Brad Paisley’s Beat This Summer Tour on May 9. Their debut single, “American Beautiful,” is in the Top 20.
