Colton Dixon got engaged to his girlfriend Annie Coggeshall last Friday afternoon at Magic Kingdom park, just a few hours before performing at Disney’s annual Night of Joy. DisneyParks official blog was there to cover the engagement, and word traveled fast as PEOPLE, BRIDES, OK!, and more picked up on the news.
Dixon gave Disney this exclusive quote:
“I can’t believe I’m already at this stage of life. I’ve seen friends and family make this step, and it’s always seemed so far away, but here we are. After mulling over how and where to propose, I could think of no better place than Walt Disney World. I’ve known that Annie was the one for me for a long time, but God’s timing is always perfect. Listening to Him and being intentional in our time together and apart as we grew as people was so important. Thank you to all of my friends and family who cheered me on during this time! There it is guys and gals. I’m getting married!!!!!!!”
Dixon was in Orlando to perform at Disney’s Night Of Joy, and he announced the engagement from stage Friday night. Dixon and Coggeshall met through a mutual friend at a concert in L.A. and have been together for almost three years.
Friday also marked the release of Dixon’s Dual EPs Calm and Storm, which already put Dixon at the top of the iTunes Christian albums chart. Click below to watch the lyric video for “Where I End,” a brand new track.
