In 2020, his song “Boyfriend” created a buzz when he revealed that the lyrics were inspired by his longtime girlfriend. It came from a playful banter between the couple, and when Ryan got first listen to it, she loved it.

HARDY said he could always count on her for honest feedback. He says that Ryan is his “biggest critic.”

Contrary to how the lyrics might seem at a glance, it’s not a breakup song. It is, in fact, about upgrading from a boyfriend to a husband.

And in a nod to that song, HARDY announced on his social media that “I’m not her boyfriend anymore.” As the song implies, the country music star went down on one knee and was promoted to fiancé.

Ryan also announced their engagement on her Instagram page. Their followers couldn’t be any happier for them.
