The Band Perry has a lot to sing about these days! From their critical acclaim to their radio hits to their first headlining tour, the singing siblings are at the top of their game. Now, the trio’s front-woman, Kimberly, has even more to celebrate. On Monday night, the 30 year-old got engaged to J.P. Arencibia of the Toronto Blue Jays.
Although it was a surprise to Perry, Arencibia enlisted her family to help orchestrate the perfect proposal. She revealed the adorable details to the Tennessean, including how he did it, why it lived up to her dreams and even what she wore. “I got to read the letter (from her family) and get dressed and put on my grandfather’s bracelet,” she said. “I came back out on the front porch and he was standing there and he got down on one knee. It was perfect.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
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.
Kelly Clarkson finally got her big moment like this on Friday, December 14th, accepting a proposal (and huge rock) from boyfriend/talent manager/country-music-prince, Brandon Blackstock. The overjoyed pop-country star took to Twitter on Saturday afternoon, revealing the big news in a jubilant tweet. She tweeted, “I’M ENGAGED!!!!! I wanted y’all to know!! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever :)”
Her excitement continued a little bit later, when she revealed a photo of the huge new piece of bling taking up major real estate on her left hand. She wrote, “Everyone has been asking about my engagement ring, so here it is :) It’s a yellow canary diamond with diamonds around it and Brandon designed it with Johnathon Arndt!”
For those keeping score and playing six degrees of Kelly Clarkson, her ring was designed by the same guy who made Carrie Underwood‘s stunner, while her new fiance manages Blake Shelton, while being the stepson of Reba. Talk about some major country connections!
Congrats to the happy couple. We can’t wait to see wedding pics!
Country Music Star Lee Brice celebrated the New Year by popping the big question to long-time girlfriend, Sara Reeveley, the mother of the couple’s three year-old son, Takoda. The couple was on vacation in Key West Florida when Brice proposed on January 2, 2012. A date has not yet been set.
Reeveley, 29, an Ohio native, and Brice, 32, originally from South Carolina, have known each other for thirteen years. The couple’s long-term romance began when they met on a beach in North Carolina. Reeveley was only 18 at the time.
Brice’s current single, “A Woman Like You,” is climbing the Billboard Country Song chart and is currently at #26.
In 2011, Brice was nominated for three ACM Awards for his Top 5 Billboard country song, “Love Like Crazy,” (two for “Single of the Year,” and one for “Song of the Year.”) “Love Like Crazy” was also named Billboard’s Most Played Song of 2010. In addition, in 2011 Brice also co-wrote the Eli Young Band’s breakthrough #1 hit, “Crazy Girl.”
Commenting about the bride to be, Brice said: “I finally get to marry that beautiful girl I met on Myrtle Beach years ago. I can’t wait to get Sara and Takoda to Nashville so we can all be together.”
