At the end of 2014, Paramore’s Hayley Williams and her longtime boyfriend Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory announced their engagement. They’d been together for six years already – since 2008 – and became engaged on Christmas day. Now, after more than a year of planning for the big day, the couple is officially married! They wed yesterday, on February 20, 2016, in a small ceremony at the Franklin Theatre in Franklin, Tennessee. You can see pictures from the wedding below:
Congratulations to the happy couple!
Meanwhile, Paramore is about to begin working on their fifth studio album. Will married life affect the new music? Perhaps more lovey lyrics and cheerful music? On the other hand, Hayley and Chad have been together for eight years, so maybe there won’t be much of a change after all. We’ll find out soon enough!
Bassist Jeremy Davis left the band in December, so now Paramore is down to just Hayley and guitarist Taylor York. The duo are expected to begin recording new material soon. If anything does change the sound of the next album, it may be the loss of Jeremy. There’s no word yet on whether Paramore will recruit a new member to take his place.
