Country singer Brett Young proposed to his longtime girlfriend -- Taylor Mills, who accepted -- earlier this month. The couple told People“We are both more excited than we can express, and looking forward to starting this chapter of our lives together.”

Young proposed at the Graduate Hotel near Ole Miss, where he went to college, on a large patio with champagne and flowers. According to Young, the couple met over 10 years ago in Arizona, while Mills attended ASU. “We will likely get married there, so I thought it would be romantic to propose where I went to school,” he clarified.

After school, the couple both moved to Los Angeles together, and took a brief break after he moved Nashville, working on his first record. “There was never any bad blood; it was just the wrong time for us. We recently got back in touch, and realized that we were both finally in the same place and knew it was right,” Young said.

He popped the big question with a beautiful custom ring, including his and Mills’ initials, designed by himself and David M. Kodner of David Kodner Personal Jewelers.
