Life is moving quickly for The Voice winner Jordan Smith!
The 22-year-old Kentucky native popped the question to his longtime girlfriend, Kristen Denny, as they rang in the new year, just weeks after taking the reality show's top prize. ET caught up with Smith and Denny over Super Bowl weekend at ESPN The Party, where we caught a glimpse of the bride-to-be's stunning sparkler in person.
"I just kinda know her like the back of my hand, so I [picked out the ring] myself and figured everything out," Smith confessed. "Thank God it turned out OK and she liked it!"
One month into their engagement, the couple is already hard at work planning their wedding -- all while Smith records his debut album.
"It's happening quickly and we're doing a lot of [the planning] apart right now, just because I've been working in the studio like crazy and been in L.A. -- but it's going well," Smith said. "I think things will probably move pretty quickly."
While these two are headed down the aisle ASAP, Smith is equally focused on getting his new music out to the fans.
"We're almost finished," he said of the album. "I think we can expect it to come out really, really soon, which is a good thing. I'm dying, chomping at the bit, ready to get some new music out for everybody and it's going to be happening pretty soon this spring."
Meanwhile, Smith says that he's been in touch with his The Voice mentor, Adam Levine, every step of the way.
"Adam and I have been able to stay in touch and he just texts to check in on me sometimes and make sure I'm doing OK," Smith said. "He hasn't been a part of the album per se -- yet! But he's definitely been checking in."
