Singer Wynonna Judd has tied the knot.

Her publicist, Todd Brodginski, confirms that she married drummer Cactus Moser in a private family ceremony on Sunday. The wedding took place in Leipers Fork, Tenn.

This is the third marriage for 48-year-old Judd. The couple had been dating since 2009.

US Weekly first reported the news.

Instruments given

Some Michigan school students will have Barry Manilow to thank for their musical instruments.

MLive.com reports that the entertainer launched an instrument drive for Grand Rapids schools, offering two free tickets to his show there last week to anyone who donated new or gently used instruments. He kicked off the effort by donating a piano. At last count, 25 instruments were donated.

Video contest

Hugh Jackman wants anyone with a cellphone to get a chance to break in to show business.

The actor is hosting New York’s first installment of Tropfest, billed as the world’s largest short film festival. It’s free and open to the public.

“Forget it, (if) you’ve got a mobile phone you can make a film, you can enter,” Jackman said. “It’s a great way for me to support the arts and anybody who wants to can get involved.”

A panel of celebrity judges including Rose Byrne, Judah Friedlander and Jennifer Westfeldt will pick best film, actor and actress on Saturday in Bryant Park.

No DMV series

Ashton Kutcher’s production company is suing because it isn’t being allowed to spend more time at the California Department of Motor Vehicles.

Katalyst Media Inc.’s breach of contract lawsuit accuses the California DMV of reneging on a deal to film a reality series focused on the much-maligned government agency and its customers.

The company claims it is owed more than $1.4 million on the deal.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Los Angeles.

It states the DMV backed out of the reality show, but it had already been promised to the TruTV network.
