Scotty McCreery Trying to Track Down Couple Who Used “See You Tonight” to Get Engaged

Image Courtesy Mercury NashvilleScotty McCreery is on the lookout for a couple who got engaged on a Southwest airlines flight while his hit song, "See You Tonight," played over the intercom. In the latest issue of Southwest: The Magazine, Greg Freyer wrote in telling the story of how he surprised his girlfriend by hopping on her flight as she went to fly home after visiting him. He got on the plane without his girlfriend seeing him and had the flight crew help him pull off the big reveal.

Greg writes, "After takeoff, a flight attendant announced that a debit card with my girlfriend’s name on it had been found. When they handed it to her, ‘See You Tonight’ by Scotty McCreery started playing. I walked up from the back row, took the intercom and proposed!”

Scotty read this story during a recent flight on Southwest, and now he is trying to track down Greg and his fiancée.

Says Scott, "I’d love to give Greg and his fiancée tickets to a show and have them come backstage so we can meet and celebrate their engagement. I hope Greg hears that I’m looking for him and that he e-mails my team at info@ScottyMcCreery.com so we can connect.”

Scotty is playing several headlining shows before joining up with Rascal Flatts for a summer tour starting next month.

Garth Brooks Opens Up About Being a Stay-at-Home Dad in New Issue of “People”

Image Courtesy Chris Hollo/Grand Ole OpryYou might assume Garth Brooks had nannies and assistants helping him raise his three daughters when he retired from touring in 2000, but you'd be wrong. In the new issue of People, on stands Friday, Garth talks candidly about his time spent raising Taylor, August and Allie. At first, the family of four was living in a one-bathroom bunkhouse on his ranch in Oklahoma.

"I'd just stare at them," Garth says of his early days alone with the kids. "I knew their sweet faces and their dispositions. But I didn't know who they were."

Garth soon got the hang of making the girls lunches, assigning them chores on the ranch and driving the girls to soccer games and school plays.  He says, "You start being a part of the community. The dads across the soccer field looked at me as a dad just like them. And I was very grateful."

Garth adds that he now prays for his girls more than ever now that they're off living their own lives: "For some reason when they were under my roof, I felt like I might have had some control, you know?"

Garth is back on the road now, playing shows with his wife, Trisha Yearwood, whom he calls "the love of my life." Check out the new issue of People to see Garth's personal family photos, along with more thoughts on his return to touring.

Of note, Garth is slated to share some big news on ABC's Good Morning America this Friday.
