Singer Kimberly Perry, of the country band The Band Perry, is engaged to Toronto Blue Jay catcher A.J Arencibia!
Perry’s proposal took place on her parent’s property in Tennessee under a huge oak tree. T
Kimberly headed to dinner at her parents house in Greeneville, Tennessee on the 30th, with no idea of what was in store for her.
She thought they were all having dinner at the house, when her family called her outside and she saw J.P. standing under the big oak tree in their yard. She said, “I saw that and I thought, ‘This is really happening'”.
Her mother sent her inside to her room, where her favorite pink dress was laid out along with a bracelet her grandfather had given her grandmother and a letter from her family.
She said, “I got to read the letter and get dressed and put on my grandfather’s bracelet. I came back out on the front porch and he was standing there and he got down on one knee. It was perfect.”
Kimberly Perry and J.P. Arencibia met at the Florida Strawberry Festival in February 2012, after he saw the video for “If I Die Young.” He told Kimberly that he then “had this moment where he felt like that was going to be a part of his future.”
He watched numerous shows by the band and used connectionsto get backstage to meet her. He got her phone number and the rest is history!
