Over the Fourth of July weekend, Tyrell, 24, popped the question to Scott, 25, while the two were enjoying a day at the lake in Tennessee.

In April 2010, Scott told Us she felt "blessed" that Lady Antebellum formed the way it did. "Whatever just happens naturally is what we go with," she said. "But when it all comes down to do it, there's a lot of timing and fate involved."

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
