Newly-engaged couple receives wedding present from Garth Brooks

The man's prayers were answered and the audience clued Brooks into the news.

"I just wanted her to say yes - that's all I even wanted", he admitted. "No idea, well if you decide to go to Hawaii, Mrs. Yearwood and I will pay for it".

That's when Brooks proposed a present for the couple: he'd pay for their romantic getaway in full if they chose Hawaii as their spot.

This couple were given the best engagement gift anyone could ask for - and they received it only seconds after she said yes.

"Sure, congratulations! But nobody else can get engaged tonight", Yearwood quipped.
