She gets her life.

The Hopester has always been a recurring friend of this blog so I don’t mind breaking character here. To the talented and beautiful Mallary Hope, congratulations on your engagement!

There’s a long road ahead still for the songstress of Cohutta but she’s not traveling it alone. Last night, October 26, while standing inside the circle of the Grand Ole Opry, her boyfriend Ryan Dokke went down on one knee and proposed. Mal¬†said yes ūüôā and ¬†shared this picture in Facebook.

Mallary has hardly been inactive lately. Back in October 10, 2013 she got to sing the national anthem at the Bears vs Giants game at Soldier Field in Chicago. She dedicated the performance to her friend, Courtney King, who was battling cancer. You can read more on that story on FOX 32 News.

This is Mallary Hope and Dustin King singing “She Gets My Life” backstage at the Grand Ole Opry.
