Josh Abbott, front man of the Josh Abbott Band, took a huge step in his relationship with girlfriend Taylor Parnell earlier this week. With the help of the couple’s adorable daughter, Emery, he asked his girlfriend to marry him!
The couple recently welcomed Emery into the world, and the three-month-old played a big part in Abbott’s proposal. She was dressed in a onesie that read “Mommy, will you marry Daddy?” and she couldn’t look any cuter! Beside her was the gorgeous ring that Abbott popped the question with.
The couple was all smiles in a photo taken after Parnell said “yes,” and why wouldn’t they be? Besides their precious daughter and exciting proposal, they’ve also got plenty of country music success to celebrate. Earlier this summer, the Josh Abbott Band announced a brand new album and tour coming later this year. The album, Until My Voice Goes Out, is set for an August release date.
It’s been a bittersweet year for Abbott. His father passed away just months before he and girlfriend Taylor Parnell welcomed their baby girl. He took his mom as his date to the ACM Awards in the weeks that followed to give her a fun weekend after such a heart-wrenching journey during his father’s final days.
It looks like 2017 has brought plenty of happiness to Josh Abbott, too. He recently posted a video of his daughter as he talked and sang to her. If you need a pick-me-up, it’ll definitely make you smile!
Congratulations to Josh Abbott, Taylor Parnell, and baby Emery on this new chapter in their family’s life! Watch the precious video of Josh Abbott serenading his daughter below.
