Craig Wayne Boyd, Cam and Kristen Kelly Share Good News of Their Engagements
Love is in the air in Music City! A handful of Nashville's stars are getting set to tie the knot thanks to their recent engagements.
There's no doubt that Craig Wayne Boyd's life has changed since winning Season 7 of The Voice, but things are about to change even more: On June 13, the singer popped the question to his girlfriend, Taylor Borland. The duo kept their engagement a secret at first, but they made their big announcement at the end of August.
“She is the one that helps me get away from all of the craziness and keeps me grounded,” Boyd tells Country Weekly. “I had thought of a lot of different ways of asking her to marry me, but I thought, what better place to do it than after a show, when we were just there hanging out with my band family in June. Of course, my fans are relentless, and they started doing some investigating, so we both thought it was time to officially announce it in August.”
Boyd met Borland in December of 2014, just one day after being named the winner of The Voice, and even though they've had a whirlwind romance, even the singer's 3-year-old son approves.
“The first time he met her, he was in the backseat of the car, and she was flying back home, and he said, ‘Da da, can we keep her?’" Boyd recalls, "and I said out loud, ‘Yes, we are going to keep her, buddy.'"
Country newcomer Cam is also hearing wedding bells; on Sept. 5, she announced her engagement via Instagram. A photo of her freshly ringed hand, along with her fiance's hand and her dog, Honey, at a river bank is captioned “My rock gave me a rock! My heart’s over the moon, @adamweaver.”According to his Twitter profile, Cam's fiance, Adam Weaver, is a Nashville-based business broker and commercial real estate agent.
A couple of days earlier, singer-songwriter Jimmy Stanley popped the question to fellow musician Kristen Kelly at the Listening Room in downtown Nashville. Kelly's Instagram account includes a photo collage of the happy couple in their special moment, posted on Sept. 2, along with the caption, "I said YES!!!!! I'm excited about getting to do life with Jimmy Stanley!"
These three artists aren't the only ones sharing big engagement news recently, however: LoCash's Preston Brust proposed to his girlfriend during a Grand Ole Opry performance on Aug. 29.
Congrats to all of the happy couples!
