We all know that Scotty McCreery proposed to his girlfriend, Gabi Dugal, in September at their favorite spot— the mountains of North Carolina near Grandfather Mountain. What we didn’t know was that the proposal wasn’t as smooth as we might have thought.
“[Gabi] could tell I was a little awkward,” Scotty reveals to One Country’s Kelly Sutton. “It definitely wasn’t’ smooth by any means. I’m just an awkward dude in general. It’s just kind of who I am. So when you try to get down on one knee and realize you’re on two different rocks and you gotta figure out where the heck are ya gonna—it took like two tries to get on one knee. It was not smooth. But hey, she said yes and that’s all that matters.
The happy couple is currently in the process of planning their upcoming nuptials.
It’s going good,” Scotty adds. “[Gabí’s] doing a lot of the heavy lifting, obviously. I’m trying to help out where I can and it’s all coming together.”
Scotty will be hitting the road this Summer promoting his current single, “This Is It,” which the North Carolina native wrote 2 weeks before he proposed. But before he hits the road, the couple will be enjoying some fun in the sun.
“We’ll do a little honeymooning after the wedding. Somewhere tropical. We’re keeping it low key,”said Scotty. “But I can’t wait for that either. Just some rum drinks on the beach, it’s calling my name.”
Bon Voyage, Scotty.
