Lee Brice has waited a long time to say "I do" with fiancée, Sara Reeveley. So, the singer-songwriter is going to take a long time to enjoy it!
The "I Drive Your Truck" singer popped the question to the mother of his son, Takoda, nearly a year ago, but the pair have known one another for roughly 14 years. So it's completely understandable that he's anxious to walk down the aisle. "We're looking at April to get married," Lee tells Country Countdown USA. "We're ready, we're excited! I'm taking a month off for my wedding. I didn't want to have to get married in a couple-day thing. I wanted to be off for a week, do the wedding, then go for a honeymoon for 10 days, and really take the time to get married and enjoy it."
As for the honeymoon, the South Carolina native hasn't settled on a destination. "Actually, I haven't quite got that nailed down yet," he admits. "I'm a last-minute kind of guy, but I promise you it'll be fun. I think I'm gonna surprise her, but I'm hesitating because she's a picky kind of person. Not that she's gonna be picky, but I got to think because I want her to enjoy it. I want to take her someplace she's never been, so that will be a different kind of vacation spot."
Perhaps Lee will choose a coastal destination to pay tribute to the couple's first meeting. "We met in a storybook way," Lee told The Boot. "I was walking on North Myrtle Beach one night, when I was there on vacation. I was around 18 years old, and it was just me and a few buddies, and we were looking for girls. It was raining and dark, so no one was on the beach, and then this girl walks by in this big ole sweatshirt, and you can't tell if she's attractive or not. Just as she walked by, the light hit her just right and I'm like, 'She's gorgeous.' So I said to my buddies, 'If she turns around, I'm going to go walk back to her.' I looked back and the next thing I know, she's turned around, so I went after her. We sat down on the beach and talked, then I went and got my guitar and played songs for her on beach."
Lee has a full schedule leading up to his nuptials. He heads back on the road this Saturday, Jan. 12, with the first stop being in Robinsonville, Miss. See a list of tour dates here.
