Scotty McCreery proposes to his kindergarten classmate Gabi Dugal

Triple Tigers Records / Sony Music EntertainmentScotty McCreery’s days as a single man are numbered.

The North Carolina native proposed to longtime girlfriend Gabi Dugal while on a hike at one of their favorite places: their home state’s Grandfather Mountain.

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

The two have a long history together, having met in kindergarten back in Garner, North Carolina. You can spot Gabi in the very personal video for Scotty’s latest single, “Five More Minutes.”

Scotty popped the question with a ring he helped design himself. The two plan to tie the knot sometime in 2018.
