Trailer Choir’s “Big” Vinny Hickerson is engaged to longtime girlfriend Lori Diaz.  Hickerson is a current contestant on hit show The Biggest Loser and he popped to the question at the Grand Ole Opry while filming an episode for competition show. 

“I wanted to take her there because it’s a place where so many dreams have come true, right there on that stage,” Hickerson tells PEOPLE exclusively. “My biggest dream is to be a great husband and a great father, and fall in love.”

“There was no one there but us and a camera crew,” says Diaz. “We sat down in the front row and he gives me a spiel about how he loves me more than anything.”

To top the evening off, Thompson Square performed a private performance of their hit single “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not”.  Check out the video and all the details by clicking HERE.
