Dave Haywood wrapped up his Christmas shopping early – and even got a jump on Santa Claus – surprising girlfriend Kelli Cashiola with a marriage proposal on Monday evening, a rep for the Lady Antebellum musician confirms to PEOPLE.
Haywood, 29, made his gal's favorite holiday one she'll never forget by staging an elaborate setup to pop the question.
After picking Cashiola – VP of Marketing/Brand Management for Warner Music Nashville – up from her Music Row office, the musician asked her to slip on a blindfold as they turned onto her street. Once inside her home, Cashiola was delighted to discover that while she was at work, Haywood had transformed every room into a sparkling winter wonderland.

"I feel so lucky that our long friendship has grown into this relationship," Haywood, 29, says. "We are totally comfortable and ourselves with each other."
Cashiola, 29, who works in marketing at Warner Music Group, recently joined her musician boyfriend for a weekend in Paris while the band was overseas promoting their third album, Own the Night.

Lady Antebellum log a lot of together time on the road, where the trio share living quarters on the tour bus – but sometimes even best friends need a breather. For the group, that means spending a little alone time at their new Nashville homes.
The trio, who just released their third album, Own the Night, open their doors in the latest PEOPLE Country issue, showing off Hillary Scott's renovated bungalow (decorated with flea market finds and TJ Maxx deals), Charles Kelley's 2,700-sq- ft. colonial ("It's not too big, so it's manageable and perfect for us," he says) and Dave Haywood's 900-sq.-ft. urban loft (complete with windowless bedroom "so when I get off the bus, I can grab a few more hours of sleep in the middle of the day if I need to," he says).

Sunday night was ladies' night at the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.
Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum – co-ed trio Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood – clocked in the most wins as the spirit of Nashville filled the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. But the night's highest honor went to Taylor Swift, who was crowned entertainer of the year.
"I'm just losing my mind," Swift, 21, told the audience after her big win. "The fact that this is from the fans makes its so beautiful."
