There’s a reason Emily Maynard is the next Bachelorette; men — and audiences — are seemingly instantly captivated by the Southern blonde beauty. Before Brad Womack fell for Em on The Bachelor, she was courted by a number of handsome (and successful) suitors, including country singer Jake Owen.

Jake and Em were spotted together back in 2008. They rang in the New Year together at the Kentucky Wildcats vs. Florida State Seminoles game. Nothing seemed to come of the fledgling romance, however, and two years later, Emily said yes to Brad on The Bachelor. Now, Taste of Country has word Jake is doling out his final rose — to girlfriend Lacey Buchanan. Jake reportedly got down on one knee Saturday night while performing at a benefit in his hometown of Vero Beach, Florida.

Emily and Brad broke up in the spring of 2011 and Em is currently circling the globe with her slew of bachelors. All's well that ends well!
