Jerrod Niemann recently revealed to ABC News Radio that he and his longtime girlfriend, Morgan Petek, are engaged. The proposal happened late last year in New Orleans and Jerrod says it was just “good old-fashioned love” that made it the right time to pop the question. The couple has dated off and on for years, in fact, Morgan is who Jerrod wrote his song “What Do You Want” about years ago.
Although they’ve had their ups and downs, Jerrod says one thing they’ve both learned is “You gotta, first of all, remember everybody has pasts. We’ve all made mistakes. If you can’t get past somebody else’s past or their mistakes, it’s never gonna work.”
While no specific wedding date has been chosen yet, Jerrod says he and Morgan will get married sometime in 2014.
