Holiday engagements are nothing new (most guys opt for New Years or Valentine’s Day) but only a bona fide country superstar could pull off a 4th of July engagement. Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott got just that; the singer got engaged over the weekend to drummer Chris Tyrell, whom she met on tour with Tim McGraw. And we though Miranda Lambert’s wedding cowboy boots was country!
“Chris proposed exactly the way I’ve always dreamed,” Scott told People. “Our families were close by, but it was just us out on a beautiful deck overlooking a lake in East Tennessee. We had just been on a hike and – in our workout clothes – he hit the knee! We feel so blessed by God that He sent us each other, and we are looking so forward to forever together!”
