Earlier this week, the man of my dreams got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. All in one simple "yes", I said "yes" to love, "yes" to peace, "yes" to faithfulness, "yes" to respect, "yes" to kindness, "yes" to trust, "yes" to patience and "yes" to never settling. Michael, I would've married you the first night we hung out because I knew then you were the one. You will always be my most precious example of God's timing and His love for me. I have found my home in you & will love you with everything I have forever and a day. WE ARE GETTIN' MARRIED, BABY! 😭❤️ John 13:7 Jesus replied "You don't understand what I'm doing, but someday you will". #OMGIHAVEAFIANCE #LOOKATTHATRING

The couple has taken the country music world by surprise with their whirlwind romance, which started in July. Pearce opened up at the time about making the first move.
"I had a crush on him for a really long time, when we would play shows together, and I didn't know how to talk to him, because we're both artists, and that's weird," she told CMT. "So I just started literally commenting on everything on his [Instagram] story – there was no reason why I was doing that. It took him a long time to get it. I had to spell it out."
