Scottish singer KT Tunstall is engaged to marry her drummer boyfriend, Luke Bullen, after he proposed on Christmas Day.
"Being an opportunist, I obviously said yes," the "Suddenly I See" singer, 32, said according to the U.K.'s Sun. "It feels smashing."
Her rep confirmed the engagement to PEOPLE Friday. The two are set to tie the knot later this year.
The singer – whose "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" was nominated for a Grammy in 2007 – won a BRIT award for best British female solo artist in 2006.
