The rep told People, which first reported the news, that Haywood staged an elaborate scene at Cashiola's Nashville home while she was at work -- Warner Music Nashville, where she is vp marketing/brand management -- creating a wintry wonderland inside the house and using Christmas lights to spell "Will you marry me?" out front.
