|(Nashville, Tennessee...) -- February 15, 2011 -- Gretchen Wilson performed her new hit single "I'd Love To Be Your Last" on the popular new CBS show "The Talk" yesterday and had the opportunity to participate in a very special marriage proposal.|
She chatted for a full segment with hosts by Leah Remini, Sara Gilbert and Julie Chen about her advice to singles on Valentine's Day ("when you meet that special somebody, don't spend so much time worrying about what they did before they met you, just focus about from that moment on") what it was like to attend the Grammy Awards ("I felt to be asked to be there and being nominated and to be a part of the entire thing last night I felt like we had already won") and about returning to school to earn her GED ("It's something I always wanted to do, but mostly for my daughter because I didn't want her to think education was unimportant.")
Following her performance of the Grammy-nominated single, Julie Chen announced the show had flown several Gretchen Wilson fans in from all over the country to watch the taping. Chen invited one particular woman on stage to meet Gretchen, who asked her some questions about her Valentine's Day plans. Gretchen then surprised the woman by bringing her boyfriend on stage, who said, "Sally, I promise to love, cherish, adore and protect you, and I'd love to be your last," before dropping to one knee and proposing. She tearfully said "yes."
The interview, performance and proposal can be viewed here.
This evening, Gretchen will make a return appearance on "The Tonight Show" to perform "I'd Love To Be Your Last" before heading to Club Nokia in Los Angeles to participate in the CMA Songwriter Series tonight.
