Inside Dancing with the Stars Pro Witney Carson's 'Beautiful' Beachside Marriage Proposal
Dancing with the Stars pro dancer Witney Carson never saw it coming – her fiancé's proposal, that is.

"I didn’t even know that he was in town," Carson says of her husband-to-be, Carson Mcallister, who proposed on Saturday. "I thought he was back in Utah. His sisters and I were just taking pictures and I look over and he's on the beach surrounded by candles."

Carson, 21, says Mcallister had constructed a "little fort of sand" covered by a white canopy in Manhattan Beach, California, and had music playing.

"It was really beautiful," she says. "Then our song ["Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right" by Billy Currington] came on and he knelt down,

How Sam Hunt Found Success By Bucking the Bro Country Trend: Behind the Hit

How Sam Hunt Found Success By Bucking the Bro Country Trend: Behind the Hit
Sam Hunt has arrived.

After penning hits for Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney and Billy Currington, the 30-year-old Georgia native broke out on his own last year with his platinum-certified single, "Leave the Night On."

"It was one of those titles that's obviously a play on words and those historically have been a big part of country music," Hunt tells ETonline in this week's installment of Behind the Hit. "The bad thing about those titles is that most of them have been written."

News: 17 Reasons Sam Hunt Is Your New Favorite Country Star

While relaxing on his couch one night scanning emails on his phone, Hunt stumbled across a song called "Leave the Light On." At a quick glance, he mistakenly substituted "Light" with "Night."

17 Reasons Sam Hunt Is Your New Favorite Country Musician

We would “Leave the Night On” on for Sam Hunt. You will too!

Forget Florida Georgia Line (and their number 1 album). Forget Keith Urban (and all those racy music videos he’s making). Your new favorite country star is Sam Hunt. And if he’s not already, he will be by the end of this post.

Actually, he might just be everyone’s new favorite musician – whether you like country music or not. "I am from the country, and I grew up mostly influenced by country music," Sam told Rolling Stone. "So by the definition I have, these are country songs, not pop songs. Even though there may be a pop element."

Watch: Kelly Clarkson’s gospel cover of T.Swift’s “Shake It Off”

This week, Sam released his first album, Montevallo. “I'm not trying to become a pop artist, and I'm not trying to make sure I stay a country artist,” he says. “I'm

Sam Hunt is not your typical country star. At 6'4", this former University of Alabama at Birmingham quarterback and free agent for the Kansas City Chiefs, is changing country music completely.

Want Your Song to Top the Country Charts? Call Billy Currington

When Billy Currington first moved to Nashville in the early '90s, the underage singer from southeast Georgia snuck into a songwriter's night at Douglas Corner Cafe.

So is Beeson,

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelor' episode 3

Sunday night we celebrated all the love that’s been found on this show with our special Bachelor Love Stories. I enjoyed looking back at some of these older seasons and reliving some great memories of people who have become very dear friends of mine. Jason really said it best when he said he doesn’t think of The Bachelor as a show, he thinks of it as a family. I couldn’t agree more, my friend. I look forward to seeing all of these friends and more next Sunday night as another beautiful couple, Sean and Catherine, get married live on ABC.

‘The Bachleor’ Recap: Juan Pablo’s Intense Flirting Breaks Girls Down

Juan Pablo is proving to be the most athletic ‘Bachelor’ ever! On the Jan. 20 episode, he took one of his dates bungee jumping off a bridge, and took the group date to a soccer game. However, the real games started between the ladies when he got a little too flirty with a little too many.

The Bachelor of course is bringing in the drama. Juan Pablo Galavis had to send home two more ladies on Jan. 20, but first he kissed quite a few of the ladies! It’s no surprise that they got pretty upset when he started doing it in front of the others — but didn’t they know that was coming?

Juan Pablo’s Flirty 1-on-1 Dates

It was quite the personal one on one for Juan Pablo and Cassandra — he took the NBA Dancer in a jeep-turned-motorboat (yeah, I’m not sure what the real name of that is,

Bachelor 2014 eliminated Lucy Aragon & Christy Hansen in episode 3 tonight. Tonight's show, kicked off with footage of Juan and Cassandra Ferguson's 1 on 1 date. They ended up, splishing and splashing in Long Beach,California,and appeared to have a great time. On the 2nd half of their date, Juan cooked Cassandra dinner. They had a long talk, coupled with some kissing action before Juan gave her an early rose. He was particularly concerned with not leading Cassandra on as he's sensitive to the fact that she has a child to get back to if things aren't going to work out. Next Juan took Nikki, Andi, Christy, Lucy, Sharleen, Kelly, Alli, Lauren, Danielle, Renee. Kat, Clare, and Elise to play soccer on their group date. It looked like they all had a blast. Then Juan chatted up and kissed a few of the girls with some 1 on 1 action at the after party before giving Nikki the early rose.

'The Bachelor': Chelsie literally has her Vienna moment

Time for the latest "Bachelor" episode. In case you missed it, Juan Pablo stepped in it a bit over the weekend when asked if there could ever be a gay bachelor on the ABC dating show. He has since apologized and obviously these episodes were filmed months ago, so let's enjoy the show now, but yeah -- that happened.

Cassandra's Date

Nikki is "level 15" ready to get out of the house and have a date, but she is not the lovely lady chosen for the first one-on-one. We're a little surprised Nikki didn't get one of the early one-on-ones but hopefully that will work in her favor -- sometimes the early ones are then forgotten about a bit because they don't get another one-on-one for a while. It can actually be a huge disadvantage to have an early solo date.

Anyway, it is also nice that Cassandra, one of the single moms,
