Country singer Brantley Gilbert and “One Tree Hill” actress and country singer Jana Kramer announced their engagement on his 28th birthday today.
The engaged couple said, “We could not be happier! We are so excited to share this special time with our loved ones and cannot wait to start the rest of our lives together.”
Brantley and Jana, who are both nominated in the best new vocalist categories at this year’s ACM awards have confirmed their engagement.
Gilbert popped the question in Nashville at the historic Ryman Auditorium Theater, which he rented out for the day. It is also the site of the former Grand Ole Opry stage, where iconic country couple Johnny Cash and June Carter met.
“I was so surprised!” Kramer, 29 said. “He asked my mom for permission before he proposed, which meant a lot to me.”
Brantley Gilbert and actress Jana Kramer began dating in September 2012. She is best known for her role as Alex Dupre on the television series “One Tree Hill”. Kramer began a country music career in 2010 with the single “Why Ya Wanna”.
This is the first marriage for Gilbert, but the second marriage for Jana Kramer. She was married to actor Johnathon Schaech for just a month in 2010.
