Mitchell Tenpenny and Meghan Patrick shared how they met, dished on their first date, revealed who’s the better cook and so much more when they took over the Country Now Instagram on Tuesday (May 5) to answer fan-submitted questions during QuaranTEN Questions: Couples Edition.

The singer/songwriters explained that they first met at a bar when Meghan got Mitchell’s attention when she walked in wearing camo. It sounds like it was love at first sight for him, however, Meghan admits she had to hang out with him about three times before realizing she was into him.

They went on to reveal that their first date was to 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.
