Kacie and music publisher Rusty Gaston got engaged over Valentine’s weekend after dating for more than a year. Kacie made the announcement on Instagram on February 16 with a photo (above) of the couple holding a pillow that reads, “Mr. and Mrs.” In fact, we suddenly think it would be cool if they only communicated to each other via pillows from now on.
“I cannot believe I get to MARRY my best friend @rustygaston,” Kacie captions the pillow pic. “I am so blessed to have such an amazing man!! I just want everyone to know!!! #futuremrsgaston #bliss #love #mr&mrs.”
On February 15, the couple’s friend posted a photo (at right) of Kacie wearing the ring that Rusty proposed with, although the designer is still completing the design of the ring’s band. “It's beautiful!!!!!!” Kacie tweets about her ring. “Can't wait to see the band!! I am one blessed girl to have @RustyGaston.”
And just who is Rusty Gaston? He lives in Nashville, as Kacie does, and is a music publisher who works for country music publishing company THiS Music. The year has been an exciting one already for him, as he took Kacie to the Grammys because a song written by writers at his company — Lee Brice’s “I Drive Your Truck” — was nominated for two awards.
The first sign of their romance came when Kacie posted a pic of them in January 2013, just as Sean’s season of The Bachelor — featuring Kacie’s ill-fated return to the franchise — was starting to air. Kacie previously dated Bachelorette Season 6 alum Ty Brown, who himself is set to marryBachelor’s Elizabeth Kitt next month. Isn’t it fun to play Six Degrees of Kacie Boguskie?
We wish all the best to Kacie and Rusty as they plan their nuptials! And we’re busy stitching together a “Congratulations” pillow for them as we speak...
