Your Town 3.8.18

Slipping on that little rock, update on Strawbuddy Selfie Tour and daylight savings time is ahead.

Slipping on that little rock

Reba McEntire helped a former bandmate give the proposal of a lifetime Sunday evening during her concert at the Florida Strawberry Festival. Calling Wayne Lewis and his girlfriend, Roselle Everett Spann, on stage to aid in a raffle, the tables quickly turned when Wayne dropped to one knee and produced a ring.

McEntire dabbed her eyes throughout the proposal, then jokingly said she should have passed tissues around and sold them for $1, saying “I would’ve made a fortune.”

Lewis joked he was grateful for the help from both McEntire and the 11,500 audience members in attendance in pulling off his grand proposal. After all was said and done, the couple thanked McEntire for sharing such a special moment with them. Lewis said she truly was “one of the sweetest and kindest people” alive.
