Scotty McCreery’s music played Cupid for a couple on a Southwest flight, and now he’s hoping to meet them.
In a letter featured in the March 2015 issue of Southwest: The Magazine, Greg Freyer wrote the following:
I planned to get engaged on a Southwest flight as my girlfriend flew home ‘alone’ after visiting me. I work odd hours, so the day my girlfriend was supposed to leave, I woke her up around 3:30AM to say goodbye and ‘left for the airport.’ I instead drove to the Detroit airport and got on her flight/ After takeoff, a flight attendant announced that a debut card with my girlfriend’s name on it had been found. When they handed it to her, ‘See You Tonight’ by Scotty McCreery started playing. I walked up from the back row, took the intercom and proposed!
McCreery read the story while on a recent Southwest flight and smiled. “It’s awesome that ‘See You Tonight’ is now their proposal song! That song was my first top 10 hit and I loved writing it with Ashley Gorley and Zach Crowell. It’s already brought me a lot of luck and great memories, and I hope it does the same for Greg and his fiancée.”
Scotty’s hoping that the happy couple will get in touch with him. “I’d love to give Greg and his fiancée tickets to a show and have them come backstage so we can meet and celebrate their engagement. I hope Greg hears that I’m looking for him and that he e-mails my team at firstname.lastname@example.org we can connect.”
Greg, if you’re reading this, please reach out to Scotty! Congrats on your engagement!
