“It was perfect, all of it,” says Scott of drummer Chris Tyrrell’s proposal after a hike near an east Tennessee lake. “Even the fact that when my future husband got down on one knee, my perfume was bug repellent!”

“There will be lots of e-mails, PDFs, photos and drawings,” says the star, 25, who will marry Tyrrell, also 25, this year.

While many decisions lie in wait, choosing to spend their lives together was easy, says Scott: “We share their beliefs and values. And we are both big family people.”

Introduced six years ago by a mutual friend (“I had a huge instant crush,” she recalls), the two didn’t become close until last year when their group toured with Tim McGraw and Scott was reeling from a bad breakup.

“Chris became my best friend on the road,” she says. “We’d be a quarter-mile from each other in separate buses and talk until 3AM.”

With their wedding location recently picked — no, it’s not at Cathedral Oaks. Or is it? — Scott is confident that “everything else will fall in place.” at least one other detail is set too: her Big Day Don’t. Says Scott: “No stressing allowed!”
