*How They Met & Proposal*
The two met when Charlie caught a Chicks show at Gruene Hall, a renowned Texas dance hall. He and Emily hooked up again
at Fan Fair in Nashville,where, Charlie says, "we were both so nervous around each other that we drank so much that I think
we didn't have any choice but to fall in love." Charlie was driving Emily to a vacation spot. He handed her the ring. She
started crying and said yes (of course). Two days later they realized that Charlie never really asked in the traditional way.
