Maddie Marlow’s Working Her Wedding Date Around 2019 Carrie Underwood Tour
Maddie Marlow, one-half of country duo Maddie & Tae, has changed her wedding date three times. But, when Carrie Underwood asks you to open for her on the 2019 Cry Pretty Tour 360 -- well, you've gotta do what you've gotta do.
"The venue has been so wonderful to work with ... We've moved the date three times," Marlow recently told The Boot and other media members. "It's like two blessings trying to happen at the same time."
Marlow and her soon-to-be husband, Jonah Font, originally scheduled their wedding for the exact same date as their performance with Underwood at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena (that's Sept. 27, according to the tour schedule). Underwood, Marlow says, was as surprised as anyone at her willingness to be flexible; when the country star asked Marlow if she was actually changing her wedding plans for the tour, Marlow responded with a resounding yes.
"My fiance was like, 'You better move that! You gotta go on tour; do your thing!'" Marlow shares.
However, the next date Marlow and Font chose fell on the same day as the CMA Awards, the singer says. Despite cycling through three different dates, however, the bride-to-be says wedding planning has still been fun.
"I did find my dress [recently], which was really exciting," Marlow shares. "We get to wear fancy dresses all the time for CMAs, but this was a totally different thing ...
"We've got some of the wedding planning done," she adds, "but it's just really fun to getting to call him my fiance."
Marlow and Font got engaged earlier this year, after meeting in high school and dating for seven years.
