Hillary Scott, the lady in country trio Lady Antebellum, became engaged to her boyfriend, drummer Chris Tyrell, over the holiday weekend, the couple confirmed to People.

“Chris proposed exactly the way I’ve always dreamed,” the “Need You Now” singer told the mag. “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.”

The beautiful brunette met her now-fiance, who reportedly inspired the band’s hit, “Just A Kiss,” while touring with country star Tim McGraw in 2010, the mag reported.

“I had a really good Christmas present from my boyfriend,” the singer told radio station Kickin’ Country 100.5 in Sioux Falls, SD, back in February. “He planned this whole afternoon/evening. At that end of the night I was like, ‘This is someone who truly cares and knows me so well.

“We were in Saratoga, N.Y., actually, which there’s a main street in Saratoga that’s absolutely beautiful and there’s cute little shops so we went in and out of those and then went to a really nice dinner… To take the cake he got a private carriage ride through this beautiful national park,” she continued. “Like, a horse-drawn carriage. It was awesome. It was so sweet!”

The pair has not yet set a date for their nuptials.
