Congratulations are going out to Scotty McCreery and his girlfriend, Gabi Dugal, who announced their engagement— with plans to marry in 2018.
The 23-year-old proposed to his girlfriend at their favorite spot— the mountains of North Carolina near Grandfather Mountain. McCreery asked Dugal to go on a hike and when he found the perfect spot at the top of the mountain, the “American Idol” winner got down on one knee, presented the ring he had helped design specifically for her, and asked Dugal to be his wife.
“I’ve been planning this moment for so long that it feels surreal for it to have finally happened,” said McCreery. “Gabi is the perfect girl and my true love, and I cannot wait to begin building our life together as husband and wife.”
The couple began dating 6 years ago during their senior year at Garner High School. Dugal has appeared in several of McCreery’s music videos, including “The Trouble with Girls,” “Feelin’ It,” and “Five More Minutes.”
“My fans instantly embraced Gabi once they learned we were dating and have always been loving towards her,” said McCreery. “When she graduated college last year, many of them brought me gifts for her at my shows and book signings. I will always appreciate their kindness to her.”
Congratulations to the happy couple.
