OFFSTAGE: Clara Henningsen Makes an “American Beautiful” Bride

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

New country trio the Henningsens added one more member to their group this past weekend when Clara Henningsen got married. Country singer and family pal Mallary Hope broke the news on Twitter on Monday morning (May 6), saying, “I can post this now ;) Even in the cold rain Clara makes a stunning bride. Love her & was honored to be invited to her beautiful family wedding. Congratulations and Good luck on your big week with Paisley!! What an exciting week. We love y’all.” Henningsen married Jacob Calaway in her hometown of Atwood, Ill. She wore an Allure gown. The band is heading out on the road with Brad Paisley later this week. The Henningsens’ debut single “American Beautiful” is climbing the country charts, and the songs the group has written for The Band Perry (“You Lie” and “All Your Life” ) have already been major hits.
