Singer Kimberly Perry is engaged to Toronto Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia.

An oak tree on The Band Perry singer's parents' property in Greeneville, Tennessee served as a backdrop for the romantic proposal on Monday.

She tells The Tennessean, "(When I first saw the tree I thought), 'If I get proposed to in this life, I hope it happens underneath this tree'."

When Perry's parents called her to come outside, Arencibia was waiting for her underneath the tree.

She continues, "I saw that and I thought, 'This is really happening'."

Perry's mother then sent her back into their house so she could change into her favourite pink dress, and while she was getting ready, she found a letter from her family and a bracelet her grandfather had given her grandmother.

She adds, "I got to read the letter and get dressed and put on my grandfather's bracelet. I came back out on the front porch and he was standing there and he got down on one knee. It was perfect."

Perry and Arencibia started dating a few months after meeting at the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida in February, 2012, according to Us Weekly magazine.

The couple plans to marry next year.
