How about Brooks noticing the proposal, stopping midsong to chat and offering to pay for a honeymoon in Hawaii?

Read all about the fairy-tale proposal upgraded to epic proportions and see the videos below and on WFAA.com.

Here’s what Brooks said to the couple after stopping to chat, via NewsOK.com:

“Where do you want to go on your honeymoon?” Brooks asked the bride. “No idea? Well, I tell you what, if you pick Hawaii, Miss Yearwood and I will pay for it, OK?”

His wife, country star Trisha Yearwood, would come up with the line of the night: "Nobody else can get engaged tonight!"

Brooks was giving doubleheader shows Friday and Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City. Brooks, 55, was born in Tulsa and grew up in Yukon. He was making the last Oklahoma stop on his comeback tour.
