Yesterday was a very special day in the life of country singer Brantley Gilbert — and not just because it was his 28th birthday. The ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year nominee proposed to his ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year nominee girlfriend Jana Kramer and she said “Yes!”
“We could not be happier!” the couple tell People in a statement from their rep. “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 proposed to former One Tree Hill star Jana, 29, at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium Theater, which he had rented out for the day. The theater was once home to the Grand Ole Opry stage where legendary country couple Johnny Cash and June Carter Jash first met.
“I was so surprised!” Jana admits. “He asked my mom for permission before he proposed, which meant a lot to me.”
In addition to being a successful actress and singer, Jana Kramer is also a Maxim-certified super hottie!
If celebrities were trading on Wall Street I’d damn sure be buying some stock in Jantley! They look like they have a seriously low risk, high reward life waiting for them!
This will be the first marriage for Brantley and the second for Jana, who married Johnathon Schaech on July 4, 2010 after first meeting on the set of Prom Night in 2008. The two announced they would be divorcing just over a month after the marriage.
