Country Stars Share Love On Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day! Some of your favorite country stars are feeling festive as they share stories on love, proposals, pick-up lines, and what they like to do to celebrate Valentine’s Day…

Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox shares the story of how he met his wife, Tara:
I was actually singing backup for a gospel artist and we had just done a show in Decatur, AL. A lady came up, and [she] was standing there with her daughter just talking, and I knew at that moment that I was looking at my future wife. It was the weirdest thing ever.

Chris Young shares the worst pick-up line that he’s ever heard:
A buddy of mine used [this pickup line] on a bartender one time, and it worked. He walked up to her, he’s like, ‘Look, you’re pretty much the hottest woman in here. And I’m pretty much the least attractive guy. You’re my only shot at having average-looking kids. Can I get your number?’

Easton Corbin tells the story of how he proposed to his wife, Brinn:
[How I proposed] wasn’t real romantic, I can tell you that. I just kind of knew [she was the one] … I actually proposed to her in her bedroom. We were both in college and she kept after me about proposing to her. Finally, I said, ‘Forget it, I’m just going to do it now.’ Of course, I still get a little bit of grief for not being [more romantic]. You know, ‘Why don’t you take me down to the river or something, and propose? In my room?’

Frankie Ballard admits that Valentine’s Day isn’t exactly his favorite:
I don’t care much for Valentine’s Day… can I just make a donation to Hallmark or something? Does that get me off the hook?

Blake Shelton exposes his softer side and tells what he loves about his Valentine, fiance Miranda Lambert:
Being able to look at Miranda, and know everything about her — know the good times, the bad times, every habit she has, and everything she does, and I don’t have a problem with one thing about her. I can find something in everything she does and says that is awesome. She’s something that I’m constantly in awe of the things that she does and she says and the way she looks. It just doesn’t get old to me. I don’t get tired of it. I know that’s a lame way to talk about love, but when you talk about being in love with somebody, I think as I’ve ggotten older, once you get past those early days when you cry when they go to the grocery store and you don’t want to sleep so you can stare at them. Once you get past that and you still feel the way I’m talking about, to me, that’s when it gets good.

James Otto says he is very romantic when it comes to doing things for his wife, Amy:
I make breakfast for her. I’m a big omelet guy, a big egg guy. I love doing that stuff. I love to cook. She hardly ever has to cook. If there’s going to be cooking at the house, it’s me that does it, and I actually enjoy it. So, she gets breakfast in bed quite often, so she can’t really complain that much then.

the JaneDear girls talk about what they think of when they hear the word ‘love’:
When I think about love, the one word that comes to my mind is unconditional. I could go down the list of examples of unconditional love that I have in my life, just a few of them being my family, my friends, The Lord. They love me — my good, my bad, beautiful things about me, the ugly things about me. They love me unconditionally and it’s forever. It’s not something that’s just going to stop tomorrow, if I screw up, because I probably will. The people in my life that I love, I try hard to also love them unconditionally.” ~ Denelle

When I thimk about the word love, I think about support. I think it’s the actions that make it true just by always telling you when you’re wrong. Even though you might not want to hear it, it’s out of love that they’re telling you certain things. I think it has no fear of saying wrong things or this or that, because it always has your best interests, so that’s what I would say love is. ~ Susie

According to Jake Owen, Valentine’s Day is a good one for him since he’s such a romantic:
I'm very romantic. I mean, it oozes out of me. Seriously, I buy t-shirts in the shapes of hearts. That's the only thing that fits me. I'm one big heart. I give love.

Josh Thompson explains what he likes to do for his leading lady on Valentine’s Day:
I like to woo the ladies with dipping them in chocolate, with….(laughs) You know, I mean, I'm usually a delivered-flowers kind of guy. You know, have 'em show up at the work, you know, so that the other people that didn't get flowers can be envious, and then, when they get home, I usually like to have dinner ready. And me waiting in a sexy apron with a little red ribbon tied around my neck.
