Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott saw more than just fireworks this past weekend. She saw a whole lot of sparkle on her finger instead! The “Need You Now” singer said yes to her drummer boyfriend, Chris Tyrell, after he popped the question.
Hillary did a play-by-play for E! News: “Chris proposed exactly the way I’ve always dreamed. 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.”
Forever together will likely include music, too since that’s how they met. They were both performing on the Tim McGraw tour. Hillary even wrote a song about her man!
Apparently he was inspiration for the tune, “Just a Kiss.” She previously explained to Billboard, “There is so much excitement at the beginning of a new relationship…This song is about one of those times when your brain kicks in and tells your heart, ‘Good things are worth waiting for.’ ”
Congrats to the happy couple!
