Deep down, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley are really true Southern gentlemen – especially when it comes to romance.
Tyler staged an over-the-top proposal when he popped the question to girlfriend Hayley Stommel in September 2014.
“I met a guy that became a friend [who] had a helicopter and we were chatting one day. I was trying to come up with any kind of idea to propose and it just kinda hit me, ‘Hey let’s do it in a helicopter.’ We were just flying around the house and he flew us to dinner and had a nice little private dinner. Just a good time, you know, to kinda sit back and take it all in. It was just a great night,” Tyler told Access Hollywood Live‘s Kit Hoover in a new interview on Thursday.

As it turns out, Tyler — who is still in wedding planning mode — said facing a packed stadium crowd is nothing compared to the nerves he had before proposing.
“Yeah, I was absolutely nervous. I was covered in sweat by the time I think I asked her,” he confessed. “We play in front of 20,000 people no big deal and to ask a girl to marry us is another story, but it was a great night overall. She didn’t expect it either, which was my goal to fully surprise her, which happened, so goal accomplished.”

Bandmate Brian Kelley, who wed Brittney Marie in December 2013, said he loves having his wife on the road with him and the band.
“Love’s in the air and we got lucky with some amazing women. That’s kinda the truth of the matter. We got some angels in our lives and we’re very, very blessed we get to share our lives with them and have them out on the road. It’s really cool to have that support system and it’s just one big party with all our crew. It’s great,” Brian told Kit.
Years before becoming a couple, Brian said he admired Brittney Marie from afar.
“We kinda ran around the same group and I said, ‘If she’s ever single, I’d love to take her out’ and she seemed like a special girl. I’d like to take care of her, so a couple of years later we ended meeting back up and it’s perfect,” he explained.

When the lovebirds finally connected, they just clicked.
“You meet people all throughout your life and you date and you have these relationships with girls and things like that and when you meet ‘the one,’ you just know everything about her was right,” he added. “She’s beautiful. She’s loving. She’s caring. Amazing woman. Amazing heart.”
Florida Georgia Line’s latest album, “Anything Goes,” is out now. Tickets for their 2015 tour are currently on sale.
