Country singer Kacey Musgraves, 28, certainly had a nice Christmas, posting on Instagram that she’d gotten engaged on Christmas Eve to “the best man I’ve ever met” in the home where she grew up in East Texas.
"I didn't say yes...I said HELL YESSSS!!" Musgraves wrote in her Instagram post. "I finally know what everyone means when they say 'you just know.'"

“I’m engaged y’all!” she posted. “We had been at my parents’ house randomly having a night of watching bittersweet old home VHS tapes of all these beautiful family memories that were made in that little, old country house I grew up in. ...
She said Kelly somehow managed to have her sister and brother-in-law sneak in and redo her childhood bedroom “in the most nostalgic and PERFECT Christmas decorations.”
Henry Mancini’s "Two For The Road" was playing “and he was on his knee with a baby pink, velvet ring box and the sparkliest thing I've ever seen!” she wrote. “It was so special. Of all the places in the world I've gotten to see, nowhere could mean more than this happening in tiny Golden, Texas in the house that completely made me who I am. I love you so much, Ruston!!”
Kelly sounded mighty happy, too. “Luckiest and happiest man in the universe today,” he tweeted on Christmas Day. “I love you, @KaceyMusgraves. For all time.”
We’ve been treated to more than our fair share of Musgraves in North Texas this year. She played Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth last week as part of a brief tour supporting her holiday album, “A Very Kacey Christmas,” released in October, and before that opened the State Fair of Texas (with the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders as backup dancers) and had been touring around the world to sold-out audiences after the release of her second major label album Pageant Material. She played the Majestic Theater in January, the first date on her “Country and Western Rhinestone Revue” tour.
