Kacey Musgraves Gets Engaged on Christmas Eve

Forget Santa, Kacey Musgraves’ boyfriend Ruston Kelley got her the best gift ever – a diamond ring and a marriage proposal on Christmas Eve!

This morning, the pair took to social media to share the news with fans.

“I didn’t say yes…I said HELL YESSSS,” Musgraves excitedly wrote on Instagram along with a photo of her new bling. “Last night the best man I’ve ever met got down on one knee in my little pink childhood home..in the same room I played with my ponies and barbies and asked me the easiest question I’ve ever been asked. ❤ I finally know what everyone means when they say ‘you just know.'”

The Texas native followed her original post with a photo of herself and her beau as well as a video of the ring and further explanation of the Christmas eve proposal. “We had just been at my parent’s house randomly having a night of watching bittersweet old home tapes of all these beautiful family memories that were made in this little, old country house I grew up in that I now have,” she recalled. “We came back to that house afterwards and he had somehow pulled off having my sister + brother in-law completely decorate my childhood bedroom in the most nostalgic and perfect Christmas decorations.”

Musgraves continued, “I was bewildered and confused when I saw it all and turned around and the song “Two For The Road” by Henry Mancini was playing (this song is so emotional and sweet..it’s one of my favorites..you have to go listen) and he was on his knee with a baby pink velvet ring box and the sparkliest thing I’ve ever seen! 💖It was so special. Of all the places in the world I’ve gotten to see, nowhere could mean more than this happening in tiny Golden, Texas in the house that completely made me who I am.”

Ruston, a singer/songwriter from Nashville, also shared a sweet message after the proposal, calling his wife-to-be an “incredible partner and woman.”

“Last night I became the luckiest, proudest and happiest man ever. I asked the brightest light in my life to marry me.”

Congratulations to the happy couple!
