Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard says he has several reasons for proposing to his girlfriend in a helicopter. But the singer tells Taste Of Country one reason was very personal for him. He says he wanted to create a better association with the aircraft.

Hubbard, who lost his father in a helicopter crash back in 2007, explains it was his way of "leaving that memory of a helicopter in a positive light." He adds linking helicopters to his upcoming wedding "instead of the other memory is a lot better."

Hubbard says his dad's death didn't spark a fear of flying, and he still loves to ride in helicopters and airplanes. He also recalls that his proposal was "an awesome thing" that was part of "an epic night" for him and his bride-to-be, Hayley Stommel. 

Tyler hasn't shared many wedding plans, but says they've picked a date next summer for their ceremony.
