NASHVILLE, Tenn. – During a fishing trip to Alaska, country singer/songwriter Lewis Brice proposed to his girlfriend Denelle Manzer, People.com exclusively reveals.
“I’ve had the ring for a minute, just waiting for the right time. Then I started thinking Alaska would be a cool place — a really memorable spot. So I booked a trip and a gig to Alaska. I knew Denelle had never been and would be excited to go,” Brice recounts to People.com. “It worked out well, I had a gig and a fishing trip planned at this awesome place I had been before, Lake Creek Lodge. I proposed on the second day of fishing, I don’t think she had a clue!”
Brice adds that he knew of a “spot up the river” with cool rock beds and decided to pop the question there
“That morning I went out with our guide Paul and let him know what I was going to do,” Brice tells People.com. “I told him about the spot I had in mind and he knew exactly where I was talking about. We headed there after fishing and get out of the boat to take a picture. Paul helped me out by recording the whole thing.”
“While standing together on a cool rock bed right beside a running river with beautiful Alaska as the backdrop I proposed, and she said yes!” he adds. “Biggest catch of my life I’d say.”
Brice’s fiancé, Manzer, is part of the inspiration behind Brice’s hit single “It’s You” and starred in the “subtle yet goosebump inducing music video” (People.com / Tricia Despres) which People.com exclusively premiered in February. The endearing single was co-written by Brice with Ben Simonetti and Niko Moon and co-produced by Lee Brice and Simonetti. The single has been one of Brice’s most successful to date, amassing more than 15 million streams since its release.
