5. Brantley Gilbert, “17 Again”:
This year, the 29-year-old made it official with an engagement to his longtime love, Georgia teacher Amber Cochran. In interviews
with The Bobby Bones Show and People, Gilbert confessed that he and Cochran had been “on-and-off” for a decade and that she had inspired songs like “More Than Miles” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.” Speaking with
Taste of Country, Gilbert revealed the story behind what could be one of the most country proposals ever. “She thought I was huntin’,” he said, explaining that decoy allowed him to surprise her with a ring and a song in the church where they first met.
