Get out the tissues, ladies, because the second half of of the popular country pair, Florida Georgia Line, Tyler Hubbard of Monroe, Louisiana, proposed to girlfriend Hayley Stommel during a romantic helicopter ride.
Hubbard and Stommel have been together for at least a year. Their photos on Instagram show they are always doing romantic things like hiking up Arizona’s Camelback Mountain and having breakfast at Hubbard’s 5,000-square-foot home on 12 acres in Nashville, Tennessee. It became obvious that things were getting serious when Tyler and Hayley began posting these couple selfies.
What do we know about the girl who captured Tyler Hubbard’s heart? Haley C. Stommel is 28 years old, was born in Indiana and is the daughter of Peter and Suzan Halse Stommel. She studied International Business at Kent State University, graduating in 2008. In 2009 worked as an Administrative Assistant at UGL Equis. She went on to receive her Bachelor of Business Administration and Finance from the University of San Diego in 2010.
From 2004 to 2011, Hayley was a Personal Assistant at Private Clients in San Diego. In 2011, she worked in the floral design area at Isari Floral Studio, a Contract Administrator / Settlements at Creative Artists Agency and was a Non-Profit Event Planning Intern at Triax Associates. Hayley also worked as Front Desk & Concierge at Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. and is currently a client associate at Merrill Lynch in Nashville.
Tyler has certainly kept his personal life private when it comes to Hayley Stommel. However, since Tyler does want to keep his and Hayley’s privacy, he has even alluded to cancelling his social accounts to keep unnecessary posts at bay. Well done, Tyler. Although there have been no reports of “hating” on Hayley, some fans seem to resent the recipient of any star’s love interest.
In December 2014, Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida,) Hubbard’s Florida Georgia Line band mate, Brian Kelley, said, “I do” to his love Brittney Marie. Marie sent her well wishes to the newly engaged couple. “Literally have a tear in my eye over @THubbmusic & @hayleystom engagement. Us 4 for life. FAM,” Mrs. Brittany Marie Kelly, the country star wife tweeted after hearing the happy news.
Tyler Hubbard told People, “I’m the luckiest man and never thought I would find such a perfect girl for me. This will truly be a life of happiness and love forever.” The pair also shared some Instagram photos from the special occasion. “This is what a lucky man looks like right here. Not sure why but I sure am blessed to call this angel my fiancée. #loveisintheair #literally,” Hubbard wrote alongside a photo of him and Stommel in a helicopter toasting glasses of champagne.
Hayley shared her own sweet sentiments, captioning her Instagram photo, taken in front of the helicopter where the magical moment happened: @thubbmusic #Godgavemeyou #loveisintheair” Stommel posted her own photo of her and Hubbard standing on a lawn with the helicopter behind them. “Blessed to call this amazing man my fiancé,” she wrote.
Florida Georgia Line has won many prestigious awards from CMA, Billboard, CMT, Teen Choice Awards and Canadian Country Music Association (Top Selling Album) with six trophies, including new artist and single of the year for the Cruise remix with Nelly. Florida Georgia Line set a record for weeks atop the country singles chart. Currently, Florida Georgia Line is touring with headliner, Jason Aldean on his “Burn It Down Tour,” along with Tyler Farr and, at select venues, Miranda Lambert. Venues include four major league baseball stadiums – Citizens Bank Park, PNC Park, Nationals Park and Great American Ballpark. Florida Georgia Line will release their newest record, Anything Goes, on Oct. 14, 2014.
“Another city, another fair, another day on the road with this amazing man and loving every second of it,” Stommel wrote next to a nighttime shot a month ago. So, Hayley is the most beautiful person ever to enter the FGL and Tyler’s heart. She brings in her beloved dog “Harley” into the picture as well, and the three of them make an adorable family.
Dry those tears… Tyler is happy, Hayley is happy and what more could we wish for them as a couple. Florida Georgia Line is blessed with their outstanding and continuing success. We wish Hayley and Tyler all the happiness in their lives.”
The three of them (puppy Harley included) are already an adorable unit. We can’t wait to see them wed and with Hayley’s little dog, Harley, as the ring-bearer!
