"And it was raining and stuff and we'd been on tour for a while together, and I joked around with her about getting married. And so I said... I looked at her, grabbed her by the hand, and dropped forward [on my knees] onstage. She had already done her show. And I said, 'I'm really serious. I want you to marry me.' She said, 'We're at a country music festival in a trailer house, and you're asking me to marry you? And I said, 'Yeah.' So I went onstage."
