– Holly Williams got engaged to Nashville drummer Chris Coleman, it was announced Friday.
Coleman proposed to Williams last week in Leipers Fork, Tenn. with an antique three banded diamond engagement ring circa 1923. Coleman treated Williams to a picnic and then hike where they went searching for civil war relics.
"I dug up a beautiful wooden box with my favorite love quote on it," Williams, 28, told PEOPLE, "and the engagement date carved in roman numerals. He wood-burned the letters onto the box. He got on one knee and I opened the box, underneath the flowers and basil were the rings."
No wedding date has been set. Williams is currently touring in support of her sophomore album "Here With Me." In addition to opening select dates for Sugarland, she will join Madeleine Peyroux on tour in August. Williams is the daughter of Hank Williams Jr. and granddaughter of Hank Williams Sr.
