“Everybody gonna talk” about country music’s biggest news: Carly Pearce and Michael Ray are engaged!
Both Pearce and Ray posted photos on Instagram of the dreamy proposal that occurred on Dec. 19. The lovebirds traveled to Tulum, Mexico for a little romantic getaway that turned into an engagement.
The 28-year-old singer shared photos on her account of Ray getting down on one knee and asking the big question. Another picture shows them smiling while she shows off her ring. “Earlier this week, the man of my dreams got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife,” Pearce captioned the set of photos. “All in one simple ‘yes’, I said ‘yes’ to love, ‘yes’ to peace, ‘yes’ to faithfulness, ‘yes’ to respect, ‘yes’ to kindness, ‘yes’ to trust, ‘yes’ to patience and ‘yes’ to never settling.”
She continued, “Michael, I would’ve married you the first night we hung out because I knew then you were the one. You will always be my most precious example of God’s timing and His love for me.”
The 30-year-old country crooner posted the same pictures on his Instagram account. “Dec 19,2018 My life forever changed for the better. I got down on one knee in one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and looked into the eyes of the most beautiful soul I have ever known and asked her to be my wife!!” he described the proposal. “Carly, you make it all make sense, every step of my life good and bad was leading me to you. You are the biggest blessing I have and will ever receive.”
