A sweet love story can inspire a big country music hit. Alan Jackson’s relationship with his wife, Denise, inspired his chart-topping hit single “Remember When,” and LANCO’s lead singer, Brandon Lancaster, says the band’s smash, “Greatest Love Story,” was partly inspired by his wife, Tiffany. Clint Black wrote “When I Said I Do,” for his wife, Lisa, and Thomas Rhett’s “Die a Happy Man” is all about his lovely wife, Lauren.
We’re wondering what Charlie Worsham will come up with now!
That’s right, the talented and handsome young singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has toured with Miranda Lambert, Kenny Rogers, Wade Bowen and Taylor Swift has popped the question, making girlfriend Kristen Anne Korzenowski his fiancée.
Charlie posted a series of photos on his Instagram page, one of which shows a selfie of the adorable couple, along with one of them sharing a sweet smooch and another closeup of that sparkling, oval-cut halo diamond ring.
The Mississippi country boy writes, “The Good Lord has blessed me so much in this life, but never more than when he put this amazing woman in it. We met through her work at the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, where she helped to set up the Follow Your Heart Scholarship. First date was at Mickey’s, Pac Man table, darts and all. Since then, she’s made every day sweeter. I love you, Kristen Anne Korzenowski, and I am thrilled to spend the rest of my life with you. ❤”
There are no details about the couple’s wedding date just yet, but Charlie has a few more shows with Miranda Lambert on the “Livin’ Like Hippies Tour” this year, and also has some tour dates with Lee Ann Womack on his calendar, so he and Kristen will probably be working around his shows.
Charlie’s critically-acclaimed album, “Beginning of Things,” came out in early 2017. Prior to that, he released his Warner Music Nashville debut project, “Rubberband,” in 2011. It included the hit single, “Could It Be.”
He also published his book, “Follow Your Heart: A Guitar, A Tattoo and One Man’s Country Music Journey,” in 2017. Proceeds from sales of the book go to Charlie’s above mentioned Follow Your Heart Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships to students from his Grenada, Mississippi, hometown who are interested in pursuing careers in the arts.
