The "dark horse" of country music turned into a white knight on March 10th when he proposed to now fiancé Leah Sykes! Devin Dawson popped the big question to girlfriend of 2 years, Leah on March 10th which turns out to be a special day. “Sunday was the two year anniversary of our first date, and I’ve known for a while now that I wanted that to be the day I propose to her. I wanted to set that day in stone so we could always remember how important March 10th is to us,” Dawson told PEOPLE.
The grand event took place at a rooftop bar at the new Virgin Hotel in San Francisco, CA close to where Devin grew up. He explained to PEOPLE, “We went up for a ‘nightcap,’ but when the elevator opened our song was playing, there were candles everywhere and we had the rooftop to ourselves. I think it hit her then, because she just started bawling! I was really proud of actually catching her off guard. I got down on one knee and she screamed ‘YES’ to me with the entire city behind us.” Devin made the announcement about their engagement with an adorable (black & white) photo and a sweet message.

Yesterday we celebrated two years ... but I needed to have her FOREVER. Leah, thank you for showing me what hope feels like. I know there’s almost 8 billion people in this world, but yesterday - without a shadow of a doubt - you made me the happiest man on this floating spinning rock when you said yes. I could go on forever ... Love is a crazy thing. ?
