Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott, 25, is engaged to drummer Chris Tyrrell, 24, she announced during an interview with People magazine. The couple met while working on Tim McGraw's 2010 tour. Tyrrell, who has toured with Lady Antebellum, Love and Theft and Josh Kelley, is currently working in Edens Edge's backing band on Brad Paisley's summer tour. Scott said Tyrrell proposed on a deck overlooking a lake in East Tennessee during the Fourth of July weekend. "We had just been on a hike and -- in our workout clothes -- he hit the knee!" she told the magazine. "We feel so blessed by God that He sent us each other, and we are looking so forward to forever together!" Lady Antebellum's next concert takes place Thursday (July 7) in Fort Loramie, Ohio. Their new album, Own the Night, will be released on Sept. 13.
