While performing in Vero Beach, Fla., his hometown, Owen asked Lacey Buchanan to be his wife.

She said yes and the two engaged in a passionate kiss and embrace. The hometown crowd cheered.

“You’re probably wondering where your ring is, right?” he jokingly asked. Owen then referred to the lyrics to “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You,” the song he was singing when he proposed: “I can’t just buy you a big diamond ring or a big old house on the hill. I promise I’ll love you forever and ever and ever.”

As if it wasn’t clear to everyone, Owen later tweeted, “I’m a happy man. Life is complete.”
