‘American Idol’ season one champ Kelly Clarkson took to Twitter (@kelly_clarkson) to announce she is set to walk the aisle soon. The Grammy-nominated singer, 30, and Brandon Blackstock, a Nashville-based talent manager, have been dating for a year. Kelly’s manager Narvel Blackstock is Brandon’s father and is married to Reba McEntire. Kelly writes:
I’M ENGAGED!!!!! I wanted y’all to know!! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever :)
The announcement caught the attention of fellow Texan Demi Lovato, who wrote to Kelly on Twitter (@ddlovato):

A fellow ‘Idol’ alum Kimberley Locke tweeted (@KimberleyLocke):
