‘After he proposed to me, I said, “You have to come out on this stage at the Grand Ole Opry.” Everybody, this is my fiancé. Make some noise for my future husband, everybody,’ she said as Arnold walked out onto the stage and gave her a kiss.

She said in another video backstage, ‘I just wanna say thank you to the Grand Ole Opry for letting me share arguably the biggest news of my life. I’m getting married!’

The singer – who first rose to prominence by finishing runner-up to Scotty McCreery on Season 10 of American Idol in 2011 – also shared a statement with People.

‘It was a night I will never forget. I got to celebrate the best year of my life. I became a member of the Opry family in February, so I thought they should be the first to know I had been asked to be in another family as well’ she said.

‘This is the first time I’m showing Cameron to the world. He has and will continue to be a sacred piece of my life. He keeps me grounded and gives me a piece of a normal everyday life that I didn’t have before him. We have been together for two and a half years, and we are just getting started. I can’t wait to be Mrs. Cameron Scott Arnold. I’m so excited for everyone to know who he and we are. The best is still to come,’ she added.

The singer also joked that Arnold – a partner at a Nashville insurance firm – was not comfortable with going out on stage.

‘He did not want to do that! He likes to be in the shadows. He was like, ‘You’re not making me come out there’ and I said, ‘You are not not getting a picture in the circle. So — we negotiated and he came out for the picture,’ she joked.

‘This is the most important place in the world to me and he’s the most important person to me, so it was pretty amazing to put ’em together,’ she added.
