Scotty McCreery and his new bride Gabi Dugal McCreery will grace the cover of the Winter/Spring 2019 issue of Southern Bride. The magazine will be on stands in early January. Fans can pre-order a copy now and have it shipped to them in mid-December.
Scotty, 25, and Gabi, 24, tied the knot in North Carolina on June 16.
The couple met in kindergarten in Garner, N.C., and grew up together in the close-knit community. They began dating six years ago during their senior year at Garner High School. Gabi has appeared in several of Scotty’s music videos, including “The Trouble with Girls,” “Feelin’ It” and “Five More Minutes.”
Scotty and Gabi got engaged in September 2017 during a hike in the mountains of North Carolina near Grandfather Mountain. When the couple summited the mountain, Scotty got down on one knee, presented a ring he had helped design specifically for her, and asked Gabi to be his wife.
“I’ve been planning this moment for so long that it feels surreal for it to have finally happened,” said Scotty. “Gabi is the perfect girl and my true love, and I cannot wait to begin building our life together as husband and wife.”
The wedding ceremony, which was officiated by Scotty’s childhood pastor, was attended by more than 200 family and friends.
