Scotty McCreery Did the Gentlemanly Thing Before Proposing to Girlfriend Gabi … Eventually

Subscribe to KLAW-FM on

Scotty McCreery drove up to girlfriend Gabi’s parents’ house in North Carolina, intending to ask them to give him their blessing before he proposed marriage. But when he got there, he turned around and drove away.

The moment overwhelmed him, McCreery tells Taste of Country. Their house is in a cul-de-sac, and the “Five More Minutes” singer says he just needed … five more minutes.

“I went, but I was probably a little late because I had to gather myself,” he explains. Watch him tell the story in the above video. He talked to Taste of Country during the CMA radio remotes prior to the 2017 CMA Awards.

Taste of Country got a few other details about McCreery’s upcoming wedding: It will be a small destination wedding in early-to-mid-2018. There will be an open bar, and the star has written a song for his bride-to-be. Fans will find it on his next album. He’s still on the fence about if he’ll sing it for Gabi on their wedding night.

McCreery and Gabi Dugal got engaged on Sept. 26 at Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina. They’ve dated for six years, but have known each other since they were kids. She’s a nurse at Duke University and McCreery travels back and forth from Nashville to see her.

“Five More Minutes” is the first single from an upcoming album. It will be his first since leaving UMG Nashville, the label he signed to after winning American Idol in 2011.
