Did Joel Crouse pop the question to Lucy Hale?

Lucy Hale Joel Crouse engagement ring

Not to get anyone too excited or anything, but Lucy Hale posted the above picture of her and Joel Crouse to Instagram yesterday. 

Now let's investigate, shall we? 

  • Diamond ring on the all important finger. 
  • Joel looks like he's maybe been crying (or he's drunk). 
  • Lucy's giving Joel a big, fat (grateful?) smooch. 

Signs seem to point to maybe, just maybe a new engagement in the country music world.

I don't think Joel and Lucy have been dating for very long, but I feel like being positive this fine Monday morning, so congrats if it's true!
