Kelly Clarkson, who’s set to wed Brandon Blackstock in October, loses her engagement diamond ring, which explains why she wasn’t wearing it during the 2013 CMA Music Festival in Nashville.
The singer kept apologizing to her fiance from the stage. Early in her first song, Stronger, Clarkson noticed she had forgotten to put on the ring.
“This is my first official set at a country … thing,” Clarkson told the crowd midway through her set. “I’ve been nervous all day because I wanted to be good for you!”
Nevertheless, there’s a happy ending to the story. Clarkson tweeted after the show: “For all of the concerned fans I FOUND MY RINGS!!! Seriously, panicked in my head all night long …..so did Brandon haha!”
Though they’d known each other for years, Clarkson began dating talent manager Blackstock just after the Super Bowl in 2012; they got engaged in December and are reportedly planning a fall wedding.
“I’ve never been truly loved like I am right now,” the singer told Cosmopolitan in January. “Brandon’s totally The One. I’ve never been so happy.”
