Lee Brice recently popped the big question to his longtime girlfriend, Sara Reevely, who of course said yes! Brice and Reevely had been dating throughout the course of 10 years and share a beautiful 3-year-old son named Takoda. Brice says he has known for quite a while that Reevely was the one, and that he better do something about it before someone else beat him to it.

“When you meet somebody like Sara and fall in love like I am, it just changes your whole life,” Brice tells Taste of Country. “I’ve been my single, wild self for a long time. She’s wonderful. She’s the best thing that has ever happened to me, so I’ve finally realized that, and said shoot … I better grab her up before somebody else does. I’m just lucky that I was the one that was able to have her. I’m excited.”

Brice and Reevely will enjoy a long engagement throughout the year while looking ahead to 2013 for the big day. “I’m on the road a lot, so we want to be able to enjoy our engagement and plan a wedding and all that stuff,” reveals the singer. “We’re looking forward to this next year.”

In addition to planning a wedding in the coming year, Brice will also be focusing on moving his bride-to-be and their son from Florida to Nashville, where they can be one happy family once and for all.

“I miss them all the time,” Brice says softly. “Hopefully I’ll get to spend some more time with him this year, because he needs it. He’s at that age where he needs Daddy around, so we’re making it happen. We’re definitely going to get the family here in Nashville over the next year.”

Brice’s latest single climbing the charts, ‘A Woman Like You,’ is a fitting song for this time in his life, as it talks about how if he didn’t meet his girl, he’d always be out there searching for one like her. The song is the first release from Brice’s forthcoming sophomore album on Curb Records.
