Can’t wait to be Mrs. Cameron Scott Arnold. I’m so excited that everyone knows who he and we are. The best is yet to come,” said Alaina.

She added that it just felt right to be the first to share the news on stage at the Opry, telling People, “It was a night I will never forget. I got to celebrate the best year of my life. joined the Opry family in February, so I thought they should be the first to know I had been asked to join another family as well.

On stage at the event, she broke the news as follows:

She later told People that Arnold wasn’t too comfortable getting on stage, but she exhausted him because it was so important to her.

“He didn’t want to do that! He likes to be in the shade. He said, ‘You won’t let me come out’ and I said, ‘You won’t get a picture in the circle. So – we negotiated and he came out for the picture,” the singer said with a laugh. “This is the most important place in the world to me and he’s the most important person to me, so it was pretty amazing to bring them together.”

Alaina also announced the news on Instagram, writing: “BRIDE be dang’d, y’all. My best friend,, proposed to me, and I announced it on my favorite place in the world, @opry. I didn’t know this kind of happiness and excitement existed. I can’t wait to be Mrs. Cameron Scott Arnold.”
