Country star Luke CombsĀ is engaged! The singer shared the news with fans on his Instagram on Thursday evening (Nov. 29), along with a picture ofĀ Combs and girlfriend Nicole Hocking posing against the backdrop of a Maui sunset. However, according to the post's caption, the actual proposal may not have taken place in nearly as scenic a location.

"She said yes a while ago, but this is a way better place to take pictures than the kitchen," Combs explained in his post. "Can't wait to spend forever with you @nicohocking. I love you!"Ā For her part, Combs' new fiancee also shared the photo on her Instagram page, captioning her post "You're stuck with me forever!"

According toĀ Country Fancast, Combs and Hocking began dating over two years ago, while Combs was still paying his dues in the country music business and didn't even have publishing or record deals yet. Their relationship has since been on a wild ride, as Combs' debut album,Ā This One's for You, and its follow-up deluxe version,Ā This One's for You Too,Ā brought with themĀ Combs' meteoric rise in the industry.

Most recently, Combs took home the title of New Artist of the Year at the 2018 CMA AwardsĀ where he also netted a nomination for Male Vocalist of the Year. And the country singer shows no signs of slowing down in 2019: In addition to wedding planning, the singer is scheduled to hit the road for his headlining Beer Never Broke My Heart TourĀ in January of next year, alongsideĀ openers LancoĀ and Jameson Rodgers.
