CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Vanessa Pritt's engagement to Jason Davis is one thing that happened in Las Vegas that isn't staying there.
Instead, the ceremony can be seen by millions of people worldwide on YouTube -- thanks to country music star Brad Paisley, a Glen Dale native.
Just after Paisley finished singing "She's Everything" during his show at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, the country singer grabbed a fan's cellphone while Davis, 40, of Teays Valley got down on one knee and proposed to Pritt.
For a couple months before their trip, Davis did his best to get Paisley involved.
"I relentlessly pursued [Paisley] and kept calling his agents," Davis said. "They said 'absolutely not.' They get thousands of requests like this."
Davis didn't give up and finally someone close to Paisley was able to get word to him that fans from his home state wanted his help.
"They told me to make a sign for the concert that said, 'I'm the guy from West Virginia that's going to propose,'" Davis said.
Pritt, 31, was a little suspicious about why Davis was carrying a backpack to the concert but said she had no clue what was in store.
"Everybody around us knew it was going to happen -- but me," she said.
While Pritt went to the restroom before Paisley came onstage, Davis asked people standing around them in the front row to hold the signs he had made, but to make sure Pritt couldn't see them.
"People were standing behind us holding the signs and pointing at us," Pritt said.
