Jake Owen Gets Engaged
Singer Pops The Question During A Florida Concert
Sorry ladies, Jake Owen is off the market. The singer spontaneously proposed to girlfriend Lacey Buchanan on Saturday night onstage at a show in his hometown of Vero Beach, Fla., in front of a crowd of 5,500 that included fans, family, friends and fans. Owen, who did not have a ring, brought Buchanan out on stage and popped the question while performing his hit, “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You.”
“Lacey is the answer to all of my prayers,” says Owen in a press release announcing the engagement. “She is an amazing person and I’m the luckiest guy in the world.”
“When I was on stage, it just hit me how many of our family members and friends were at the show,” he adds, noting that Buchanan is also a Florida native. “So, I thought sharing that moment would mean a lot to everyone.”
Buchanan has appeared in Owen’s music videos for “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” and “Eight Second Ride.”
