Sarah Darling is engaged!
The country singer tells TheBoot.com that her British boyfriend James Muriel popped the question over the weekend, while they were vacationing in Key West, Florida. She says James' proposal "was so perfect because it was on the beach," and the Atlantic Ocean had been the biggest obstacle in their relationship.
Sarah adds that "the significance of the scene made it really romantic and sweet." While James now lives in Nashville, Darling admits that it "was very hard" when he was based in London. She explains that they would Skype and even did Skype cooking where they cooked dinner together, despite the difficulty of their six hour time difference.
Sarah says she met James through his father, Andrew, a songwriter who had been making frequent trips from London to Nashville. She explains that Andrew had tapped her to record a demo for him, and James worked on the session.
Sarah says she and James actually knew each other for years before they decided to start dating. Sarah says it was a trip to Paris that sealed the deal for her, and she knew James was the man she "wanted to be with forever."
