Love & Theft’s Stephen Barker Liles Engaged

Big congratulations are in order for Stephen Barker Liles, one half of country duo Love & Theft. On Tuesday May 28th,  the “Angel Eyes” singer proposed to longtime girlfriend Jenna Michelle Kennedy in Fort Myers, Florida.

Speaking to People Magazine, Liles revealed, “I had one of my closest friends drive down and set up cameras….[She] asked what they were doing, and I said, ‘Probably just watching the sunset!’ Then we walked closer and I got down on one knee and begged her to be mine forever,” says Liles, who adds that they both cried during the proposal.

Liles asked Kennedy’s mother and three siblings for his bride-to-be’s hand and the pair are planning a wedding in May 2014.
