The couple first met at a furniture store in Nashville and dated for almost three years before finally getting engaged.
During the time, talking with "All Our Favorite People," Owens said,
"She was an interior designer at Restoration Hardware, and I was buying a couch or something at the time. I remember it was after I was divorced, and I remember looking at her. I was just intrigued by how beautiful she was and how she was holding court in that store that day and telling people what they needed to do. I was like, 'Wow, she’s got a lot going for her. She’s confident.'"
The singer-songwriter added,
"But I never actually ever said anything to her about it – it was flirtatious until it was a few weeks after that. It was after she was helping me. I was in the store, and I said, 'Hey, you wanna get a beer sometime? I don’t know if that’s professional enough to ask because you’ve only helped me in a professional way, but I figured if I didn’t ask you for beer, I’d never know if you would wanna go get one.' She was like, 'Sure, let’s go.'"
