Eric Paslay Tells Adorable Proposal Story
Eric Paslay popped the question to girlfriend Natalie Harker in December of last year, but it wasn’t until the “Friday Night” singer caught up with Taste of Country Nights host Sam Alex that we learned how it all went down.
Suffice it to say, it was an adorable proposal, and it was a long time coming! Paslay knew he’d ask Harker to spend the rest of her life with him. The two had been dating for a couple of years, but had knew each other for several before that. The singer decided to take a trip down memory lane before hiding the ring in a very special place.
“Natalie had made a photo album for me a couple years ago when we first officially started dating … just all the cool photos of I mean five years, well now seven years ago, of just when we were young and figuring out the music business and everything,” Paslay shares. “Just cool photos from trips and bible verses and meaningful dates to us and halfway through it said, ‘To be continued …’”
The singer-songwriter continued adding to the album, including his own photos and even giving his girlfriend a little hint at what was to come at the end of the scrapbook.
“I put more photos in from the last two years and just cool moments like gold record at the Opry — I put ‘Gold at the Opry,’ so it was a little foreshadowing,” he continues. “The last picture was us in front of the Christmas tree and I kinda built up the back of the book. I got some foam and wrapped it in velvet to where she wouldn’t see that I’d built up the back of the book to make a ring holder out of it. I slid the ring into where the diamond was the star on top of the tree. So she kinda was going through, we went through the whole thing, and it took her a second to notice that there was a diamond.”
However, the best part of the whole thing wasn’t the proposal itself, but what came of it. He shares: “And she said yes, so that was good.”
A wedding date has not been revealed, and at last encounter, the couple was still working on a guest list. Paslay is currently on the road on his headlining Make Every Night a Friday Night tour. This August he’s booked for an appearance at 2015 WE Fest. See the full lineup here.
