Merry go marriage! Country superstar Kacey Musgraves said “yes” to boyfriend Ruston Kelly on Christmas Eve, and revealed exactly how he proposed in a detailed Instagram update the following day.

“We had just been at my parent’s house randomly having a night of watching bittersweet old home tapes of all these beautiful family memories that were made in this little, old country house I grew up in that I now have,” Musgraves shared, alongside a video of her sparkling new ring against the backdrop of her family’s Christmas tree. “We came back to that house afterwards and he had somehow pulled off having my sister + brother in-law sneak off and completely decorate my childhood bedroom in the most nostalgic and perfect Christmas decorations.”

We had just been at my parent’s house randomly having a night of watching bittersweet old home tapes of all these beautiful family memories that were made in this little, old country house I grew up in that I now have. We came back to that house afterwards and he had somehow pulled off having my sister + brother in-law sneak off and completely decorate my childhood bedroom in the most nostalgic and perfect Christmas decorations. I was bewildered and confused when I saw it all and turned around and the song “Two For The Road” by Henry Mancini was playing (this song is so emotional and sweet..it’s one of my favorites..you have to go listen) and he was on his knee with a baby pink velvet ring box and the sparkliest thing I’ve ever seen! 💖It was so special. Of all the places in the world I’ve gotten to see, nowhere could mean more than this happening in tiny Golden, Texas in the house that completely made me who I am.

Musgraves did not expect the moment. “I was bewildered and confused when I saw it all and turned around and the song ‘Two For The Road’ by Henry Mancini was playing,” she recalled. “(This song is so emotional and sweet..it’s one of my favorites..you have to go listen) and he was on his knee with a baby pink velvet ring box and the sparkliest thing I’ve ever seen! 💖It was so special. Of all the places in the world I’ve gotten to see, nowhere could mean more than this happening in tiny Golden, Texas in the house that completely made me who I am.”

The Same Trailer, Different Park announced her engagement Christmas morning, alongside a pic of her beautiful diamond. “I didn’t say yes…I said HELL YESSSS!!” she shared. “Last night, the best man I’ve ever met got down on one knee in my little pink childhood home..in the same room I played with my ponies and barbies and asked me the easiest question I’ve ever been asked. I finally know what everyone means when they say ‘you just know.’”

Kelly had a photographer document the emotional moment at home.
