Cassadee Pope Reveals How Rian Dawson Popped the Question

It’s been a huge week for Cassadee Pope, from attending the GRAMMYs to saying “yes” to the man of her dreams. And with every ring comes an awesome engagement story.

While walking the red carpet during “Music’s Biggest Night,” Pope and duet partner Chris Young passed by People Magazine to chat about their nomination for their song, “Think of You.” Bringing up the exciting news, the correspondent got Pope to spill about the romantic moment and what actually went down when her fiancé popped the question.

“I had no idea. It was such a surprise! It was a Tuesday morning and I was still in my pj’s, so it was not expected, clearly. This is such a stupid story, but he was sweeping in the living room and our puppy, a little French bulldog, the love of our lives, was biting the broom. So I took Cuppy, which is his name, and took him in the bedroom and just kept him in there for a few minutes and Rian was like, ‘Ok, you can let him out!’ Then, I opened the door and he was on one knee,” explained Pope happily.

The bride-to-be glowed in her sparkly glitter ensemble for the night alongside her dapper pal, Young, in his all-black suit look. While the two didn’t win in their nominated category, Pope definitely landed an even greater trophy for the night: the chance to plan a future with her boyfriend of seven years.

Pope will soon be heading across the pond for the C2C Festival in London this March.
