Country singer Scotty McCreery popped the question to his longtime girlfriend, Gabi Dugal, and according to his Instagram post, “SHE SAID YES!!”

The couple met in kindergarten in Garner, NC. The proposal to place on Tuesday, Sept. 26, on a familiar trail to the pair on Grandfather Mountain.

“I’ve been planning this moment for so long that it feels surreal for it to have finally happened,” McCreery said. “Gabi is the perfect girl and my true love, and I cannot wait to begin building our life together as husband and wife.”

Wife is not the only role that Dugal will have played in Scotty’s life. The Duke University pediatric cardiac nurse had an acting role in McCreery’s 2011 “Trouble With Girls” music video.

In 2014, the North Carolina native acted a part in McCreery’s “I’m Feelin’ It” music video.

The 2011 American Idol winner’s singles have included “I Love You This Big,” “The Trouble With Girls,” “See You Tonight,” “Water Town Town,” “Feelin’ It” and his current hit, “Five More Minutes.”

“Feelin’ It”

I’m feelin’ it
Pop tops poppin’
Flip-flops floppin’
Drop tops droppin’ down
Ray-Bans rayin’
Waves are wavin’
Ladies are layin’ out
Feelin’ it

Ipods rockin’
Sunblock blockin’
Igloos stockin’ up (yep)
Cutoffs are cuttin’
Worry ’bout nothin’
But puttin’ something in my cup (feelin’ it)

And I can’t, I can’t find nothin’ wrong
With nothin’, nothin’ that’s goin’ on
It’s makin’ me wanna sing a song
That goes like this

Whoa, oh, whoa
Ain’t nothin’ like feelin’ that summertime feelin’
Kicked back, relaxed, just chillin’
I’m feelin’, I’m feelin’ it
Whoa, oh, whoa
Ain’t nothin’ like diggin’ that summertime
Diggin’ in the sand, gettin’ tan
With your hand in my hand
I’m feelin’ it
Oh yeah, I’m feelin’ it

Rip tide rippin’
Skim board skimmin’
Sip, sippin’ somethin’ on ice (fill it up)
Hot gets hotter
Head to the water
Jump into paradise (feelin’ it)

And I can’t, I can’t find nothin’ wrong
With nothin’, nothin’ that’s goin’ on
It’s makin’ me wanna sing a song
That goes like this (like this)

Sunset settin’
Gettin’ good’s gettin’
Good as it can get
Lip gloss glossin’
No more talkin’
Baby givin’ me a kiss
(Feelin’ it)
