Bobby Bones will soon be a married man!

The multi-media personality and host of The Bobby Bones Show proposed to his girlfriend Caitlin Parker on Sunday (Oct. 11) and she said “yes!”

Bones, 40, shared details surrounding the romantic surprise proposal on Instagram.

“I am the luckiest. I waited so long for the right one. And it payed [sic] off,” he wrote alongside several adorable photos from their backyard engagement. 

“After she said yes, our song “nothing left to lose” by Mat Kearney was playing outside,” he added and went on to reveal the significance of the song.

“And it was @matkearney playing it. She said it was at Mat’s concert during this song that she knew I was the one for her.,” Bones explained. “So lucky he played it again for only us tonight. I’m so happy I get to marry the love of my life.”

Several country artists, including Scotty McCreery, Russell Dickerson and Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay congratulated the future Mr. and Mrs. in the comments section.

Parker, 28, gushed over the proposal on Instagram as well, writing, “I get to marry the best man I’ve ever known.”

“Bobby surprised me with the most amazing proposal in the barn in our back yard which was immediately followed by a live performance of @matkearney singing our song,” she shared. “I am in shock and feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I’m so in love & so happy.”

She signed her post “the future Caitlin Estell.”

Bones and Parker met in 2019 through a mutual friend and began dating several weeks later. Parker relocated from California to Nashville earlier this year and they’ve been inseparable ever since.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
