2015: A Date With Fate
While Kane missed out on being introduced to Katelyn through their shared producer on the set of a music video she was working due to conflicting schedules, fate stepped in one year later. “A year goes by and the same guy that we were working with brings her to a show,” Kane explained to Radio.com. “My very first show ever, I believe it was 2015 … She didn’t want to come and he forced her basically." As the musician recalled, they didn't say much, but they didn't need to: "We met, we didn’t talk at all, I maybe said ‘hey’ to her—but I thought she was adorable, [I was] looking at her all night.”
So taken with the bronde beauty was he, in fact, that he slid into her DMs the very next day. “I flew her down [to Nashville] and we just, we hit it off and she never left.
Katelyn remembered her experience joining her beau on tour to Taylor Magazine, saying, “He had one bus and there were 10 of us on it—all guys. Me and him shared a bunk, and if you’ve never been on a tour bus, then all you need to know is that they have tiny bunk beds! When we got in there, we were not moving for the night! We put our dog at the bottom of our bed and we did that for over a year.”

The reason? He simply got too excited! “I just couldn’t wait," he explained to People. Instead, he wound up popping the question in the middle of—gulp—The Amityville Horror—but it didn't stop Katelyn from saying "yes."
