He revealed the date backstage at the American Music Awards Sunday night after winning Country Album of the Year for Just as I Am. Brantley and Amber met 10 years ago, and were together for five years before splitting up. They reconnected after Brantley got sober.

He says, "I had some things going on in my life that she wasn't really willing to be a part of. I understand that completely now, and I'm so, so thankful that that was the way it was."

Brantley has said Amber inspired several of his hit songs, including "More than Miles." Amber was with Brantley at the AMAs Sunday night.
