Country singer Travis Tritt serenaded model Theresa Nelson with his hit, More Than You'll Ever Know, when they were married over the weekend at his home outside Atlanta. Tritt, 34, had written the song for Nelson, according to Tritt's publicist Nancy Russell. The song was a No. 1 single for Tritt. More than 300 guests attended Saturday's wedding, including recording artists Tanya Tucker, Sam Cooke, Lari White and Gary Rossington of the group Lynyrd Skynyrd. The couple met in February 1995 at a party thrown for Tritt by country singer Marty Stuart. It is Tritt's third marriage, Nelson's first. Tritt is nominated in music video and duet categories of the Academy of Country Music Awards, which will be presented April 23.
