TRAILER CHOIR singer Big Vinny is a married man after exchanging vows with his longtime girlfriend.

The country star wed Lori Diaz in an intimate ceremony last weekend (13-14Oct12).

The Rockin' the Beer Gut hitmaker, real name Vincent Hickerson, announced the news by posting a picture of his new bride on, alongside a caption which reads, "I used to wonder what love looked like. Then I married this girl and now I know."

The musician, who famously shed almost 200 pounds (91 kilograms) as a contestant on hit U.S. reality TV show The Biggest Loser, proposed to Diaz onstage at the Grand Ole Opry in Tennessee last year (11).
