Mitchell Tenpenny and Meghan Patrick are match made in musical heaven! 

Tenpenny, 32, decided to take the next step in his relationship with fellow singer/songwriter Patrick, 34, as he popped the question to his longtime love at Losers Bar & Grill in Nashville, TN this past Wednesday night (Nov. 24).

“I met Meghan here so it was the perfect place — and hey, I got engaged ‘at the end of a bar!'” Tenpenny shared in an exclusive interview with People, referencing his duet with Chris Young.

The newly engaged couple met at the very same spot four years ago and they say that it was love at first sight.

Thanksgiving week couldn’t have been a more perfect time to propose to Patrick according to Tenpenny. “I wanted both of our families to be here,” he explained.

His proposal has been in the works for a while, as the singer prepared for the big moment by asking Patrick’s father for his blessing the last time he was in Nashville.

Patrick had a feeling that the Nashville native was going to propose. “With my family coming into town this weekend I thought maybe, because we have talked about this for a while,” she said. “But I did not expect this! This is the most perfect engagement I could have ever imagined.”

Tenpenny admitted to having butterflies prior to the proposal, which ultimately ended with happy tears. 

“I had a whole speech planned and it disappeared [in the moment]. I wasn’t able to say everything I wanted to,” Tenpenny admitted. “I was nervous — and relieved. She was crying, I was crying. All I wanted was to hear her say yes!”

“I also thought there would be all these things I would have said,” Patrick added. “And all I could get out was ‘Yes!’ Then we both awkwardly stumbled around trying to get the ring on my finger.”

Last year, the couple recalled their first date with Country Now, revealing that they attended a Nashville Predators game, which scored Mitchell some major points with Meghan.

“Take me to sports, that is definitely an amazing first date,” she said at the time.
