Scotty McCreery's 'See You Tonight' Used In Airplane Wedding Proposal

(Radio.com) Unbeknownst to Scotty McCreery, his music served a major role in one couple's engagement on a Southwest flight. In a letter featured in the March 2015 issue of Southwest: The Magazine, Greg Freyer wrote how he proposed to his girlfriend during a recent flight.

"Dear Southwest, 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 3:30 AM 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 debit 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 was so moved that he is hoping to meet the newly engaged couple. 'It's awesome that 'See You Tonight' is now their proposal song," McCreery said. "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 fiancee." Read more here.
