Country love: Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott engaged

Wednesday July 6, 2011

Lady Antebellum's front woman Hillary Scott has announced her engagement to drummer Chris Tyrell.

The country stars met last year on Tim McGraw's Southern Voice tour.

Of their engagement the country singer, 24, told People magazine, "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!"

Hillary, who has been hard at work on a new album, is said to have written its single Just A Kiss about her fiancé.

Lady Antebellum are due to release their new album in September.
