Dave Haywood of country music trio Lady Antebellum proposed to his fiancee Monday evening by spelling out “Will you marry me?” in Christmas lights at her Nashville, Tenn., home.
Word of the engagement spread Tuesday after reports by People.com about how Haywood, a 2000 graduate of Lakeside High School, surprised music marketing executive Kelli Cashiola.
Haywood is the second member of the band now planning a wedding. Singer Hilary Scott received a ring from the band’s drummer, Chris Tyrell, last summer. Bandmate Charles Kelly, also from Columbia County, is married to Cassie McConnell.
