Does Kane Brown need a little help in the romance department?
He reveals to PEOPLE that he popped the question to girlfriend Katelyn Jae one night in April while the two were watching The Amityville Horror, a movie about newlyweds who move into a house where a mass murder has been committed.
Um, let’s just hope Brown doesn’t believe in omens.
Brown, the 24-year-old up-and-comer who just notched a No. 1 with “What Ifs” with childhood pal Lauren Alaina, admits it was a “weird proposal.” The plan had originally included “rose petals and everything like that” for the next day, but “I just couldn’t wait.”
And no matter: As everyone knows by now, Jae said yes. The couple is planning a wedding for fall 2018. With his touring schedule, Brown said, “that was the only open, free date that I had.”
Jae — who tried a career as a vocal artist before realizing “she doesn’t like to be in the spotlight” — is now finishing up studies in music management. The couple met “a little over two years ago,” Brown explained, and they now share a household and a dog, Nash.

So what’s he looking forward to most about being married? Not anything, Brown said, that he doesn’t have now.
“Basically we’re already married,” he said. “We just need the paperwork.”
