Jake Owen Makes Time to Celebrate His Engagement, Planning Private Ceremony on the Beach

RCAJake Owen got a lot of headlines when he proposed to his girlfriend Lacey Buchanan onstage in Florida earlier this month. He was thrilled she said yes, but Jake admits he wasn't ready for all the media attention their engagement got.

"A lot of people really wanted to know about it, how it went down and everyone wanted an interview," Jake says. "That's all great, but I wanted to be normal for a minute. I always thought I was normal until that moment."

Jake and Lacey have been careful to maintain privacy about certain parts of their engagement, and their wedding will be a private affair too. Jake says they'll tie the knot soon in a simple ceremony on the beach.

He reveals, "No shoes, and I'll probably just be laid back in casual clothes, and she'll be in her pretty dress, and we'll have just immediate family and call it a day."

In the meantime, Jake and Lacey have been making time to have some fun. They attended the T.J. Martell Foundation's annual Best Cellars fundraiser Monday night in Nashville. That event features wine from some of the top collector's in the country, and Jake was excited to taste what they had to offer.

He joked before going in, "Lacey doesn't drink too much, really. That's another reason I'm marrying her. She can be my designated driver on the way home."
