Castro, 22, married his girlfriend, Mandy Mayhall, in Texas on Saturday (Jan. 2). "Yesterday I married the girl of my dreams...," Castro tweeted early Sunday. "It couldn't have been more perfect! Now, honeymoooon!!! :)"

Mayhall and Castro have known each other since high school and started dating in 2008. He proposed on Halloween.

Castro, who finished fourth on "American Idol" in 2008, will release an EP called "The Love Uncompromised" on Jan. 12 -- the same day "Idol" begins its new season on FOX. A full-length album will follow in the spring, and he's headed back out on tour later this month.
