Chris, 34, wrote a song called “Big, Big Plans,” which he debuted to Lauren, 29, during the proposal. After he sang the lyrics, “Right now we’re back in her hometown and I’m down on one knee / I guess she finally figured out, I’m gonna ask her to marry me,” he proposed.

“I asked her parents for different places in Portland, I could potentially take her to, but after a lot of thought I decided doing it at the family cookout would be the most laid-back setting and that she’d appreciate the simplicity of me proposing to her in her parents’ backyard,” the country star exclusively told People on June 18.

He continued, “I was initially worried that doing it on Father’s Day might not be the best move, but her dad, Dave, said that it could only add to his Father’s Day and that’s when I decided Sunday, June 16 was the day.”

Never going to stop telling you how much I love you and I will hold onto you forever and ever!”
