McCreery gets engaged

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 – Scotty McCreery and his longtime girlfriend Gabi Dugal are engaged. The couple plans to wed in 2018.

McCreery proposed today at one of their favorite places - the mountains of North Carolina near Grandfather Mountain. The singer/songwriter asked Dugal to go on a hike with him on their favorite trail, which they discovered just last year. Walking up the mountain, McCreery waited to pop the question.

When the two arrived on top of the mountain surrounded by stunning views of lush green forests, McCreery got down on one knee, presented a ring he had helped design specifically for her, and asked Dugal to be his wife.

"I've been planning this moment for so long that it feels surreal for it to have finally happened," said McCreery. "Gabi is the perfect girl and my true love, and I cannot wait to begin building our life together as husband and wife."

The couple met in kindergarten in Garner, N.C. where the young entertainer made enough of an impression on Dugal that she wrote "Mrs. Gabi McCreery" encircled with hearts in her diary at the time. The two friends grew up together in the close-knit community and began dating almost six years ago during their senior year at Garner High School. Dugal has appeared in several of McCreery's music videos, including "The Trouble with Girls," "Feelin' It" and "Five More Minutes." In his book Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Towards the Dream which was released in 2016, McCreery brought their romance into the public spotlight. She frequently accompanies him at award shows, red carpets and events.

"My fans instantly embraced Gabi once they learned we were dating and have always been loving towards her," said McCreery. "When she graduated college last year, many of them brought me gifts for her at my shows and book signings. I will always appreciate their kindness to her."

Dugal is a graduate of the University of North Carolina and currently works as a pediatric cardiac nurse at Duke University Hospital.

CD reviews for Scotty McCreery

CD review - Seasons Change "Boys from Back Home" is Scotty McCreery's amalgamation of Kenny Chesney's "I Go Back" and "Boys of Fall," which even borrows words from each hit song to create something attempting to be new. It's not new. Instead, it sounds more like songwriting by committee, relying upon radio listener demographics. Many of these songs were created to sound immediately familiar to mainstream ears. They will. This doesn't mean they're good, though, let alone meaningful. ...
CD review - See You Tonight Scotty McCreery's third release, "See You Tonight" is designed to market the season 10 American Idol champ as a more mature artist. Armed with songwriting heavies along with a guest vocal from Allison Krauss, it might work on paper. But in the end, he proves that his wheelhouse remains fun contemporary songs driven by his boy next door charm. Ironically, for a fall release, the album is heavy on summertime themed tracks and upbeat party anthems. From Feel Good Summer Song to ...
CD review - Christmas with Scotty McCreery Hearing Scotty McCreery go into a spontaneous, Elvis-y C.C. Rider, right after a guitar-rocking, piano-pounding Santa Claus Is Back In Town makes "Christmas with Scotty McCreery" worthwhile. It's such a treat to have the boy wonder let loose and rock just a bit, rockabilly style. McCreery also rocks a touch during his version of Jingle Bells, which leaves him sounding more like Dwight Yoakam than Josh Turner, which is usually the comparative case. Rockabilly must have been on ...
