Brantley Gilbert Stops Show to Give Marriage Proposal the Spotlight [Watch]
A couple of New Yorkers are now engaged after attending a Brantley Gilbert concert.
Justin Orth of western New York proposed to his girlfriend, Julia Roessler, at the country music star's concert in Darien Lake, N.Y., on Sunday (July 30). Thankfully, Julia said yes to Justin's request, and the two are now happily planning their future together.
Luckily, one of the radio stations at the concert learned early on that Justin planned to pop the question. Since their seats were near the stage, Brantley Gilbert easily saw the moment about to unfold and took immediate action. For a few moments, he allowed the spotlight to focus elsewhere, on the happy couple. He instructed his crew to show the couple on the big screen so the rest of the arena could see what was going on.
It took a few moments for Julia to realize what was happening, however. Justin was down on one knee for several seconds before she finally turned and noticed him. Of course, with the loud roar of cheers happening in the building — roughly 12,000 people attended Gilbert's Darien Lake show — it was hard for her to hear her now-fiance as he asked her to be his wife.
You'll probably notice in the video that Justin didn't have a ring on him. More than likely he was trying to keep it safe while at the concert, but later he assured WYRK that the ring is now safely on Julia's finger. Naturally, all of BG Nation and Gilbert himself are wishing the couple a happy life together.
