Lauren Alaina is engaged! The country star revealed the big news during a performance at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday night.

“It was a night I will never forget. I was able to celebrate the best year of my life. I became a member of the Opry family in February, so I thought they should be the first to know that I was asked to be in another family too,” Alaina, 28, told PEOPLE exclusively of her engagement to Cam Arnold , 34.

“This is the first time I’m showing Cameron to the world. It is and will remain a sacred part of my life. He keeps me grounded and gives me a slice of normal everyday life that I didn’t have before him. We’ve been together for two and a half years and are just getting started. I can’t wait to be Mrs. Cameron Scott Arnold. I’m so excited that everyone knows who he and we are. The best is yet to come.”

On stage Saturday night, Alaina quickly recognized the new ring on her finger. “I was welcomed into this family and it’s been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember,” she referred to her induction into the Opry earlier this year. “I didn’t think this year could get any better, [but Friday] I was asked into another family! After he proposed to me, I said, ‘You have to come out on that stage at the Grand Ole Opry.'”

Alaina then introduced her fiancé, Cam Arnold, to share in the happy occasion.

“Everyone, this is my fiancé,” she announced. “I told him he had to come over here and we had to take a picture – we’re doing it because this is the circle and I’m going to put my hand up and do the thing. Make some noise for my future husband everyone!”

Arnold – a partner at a Nashville-based insurance company – prefers to stay out of the public eye, but made an exception to celebrate the couple’s engagement and took to the stage to kiss his bride-to-be.

“He has Not want to do that! He likes to stay in the shade. He said, ‘You are Not let me get out of there’ and I said, ‘You’re not Not get a picture of the circle. So — we negotiated and he came out for the picture,” the Getting Over Him singer explained with a laugh. “It’s the most important place on earth to me and he’s the most important person to me, so putting them together was pretty amazing.”

Pointing to her ring finger, she added: “And also — it did Yes, really Well. I talk a lot – as you all saw! — and I didn’t speak for about 45 seconds as I looked at this ring and realized what was going on. I didn’t see it coming. It was perfect in every way and I can’t wait to spend forever with him so I wanted to share it.”

Although Arnold has occasionally accompanied Alaina to events over the course of their time together, the american idol Alum and Arnold have largely kept their relationship under wraps. In a September 2020 interview with PEOPLE, Alaina said she was determined to wait until her next relationship was serious to share with fans.

“I’m 100 percent sure it will work before I send anything,” she said at the time. “I joked that I’ll pretty much walk down the aisle before I tell people about him!”

During her debut appearance on the Opry in February 2022, Alaina hinted at the possibility of walking down the aisle in the near future.

“For me to finally be there officially [the Opry] is the greatest dream come true of all time,” she said at the time in front of a sold-out house. “Most little girls dream of their marriage. I dreamed of that. So,” Alaina added with a hearty chuckle, “hopefully I can have a wedding now too, and we’re ready!”
