By Daniel Jones, editor

Country music superstar Jerrod Neimann recently provided an almost unbelievable wedding proposal for local residents Jared Terrell and Kelsey Funderburk.

“I thought I was just going to a concert,” Funderburk explains.  “I had no idea I was going to leave knowing that I’ll be marrying the love of my life.”

A video posted to YouTube shows the couple on stage, when the singer lets out a surprising statement.

“Well, he (Jared) thought he’d bring you up here and ask a special question,” Neimann says.

The crowd erupts in cheers, and Terrell takes a knee before proposing.  Funderburk then provides a very enthusiastic “Yes!” before leaping into his arms, much to the delight of those in attendance.

The country music singer then goes a step further, offering them their first dance to his hit “God Made a Woman” while the eager crowd cheered them on.
