NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Facebook post helped return a missing wedding ring to its owner after he lost it during the CMA Music Festival in Nashville.
Columbia resident Chevy White and his wife Susan were at LP Field with friends Thursday night when he noticed his wedding ring was missing from his finger.
“I looked down at my finger and said, ‘Guys, what am I going to do? I’ve got to tell my wife I lost my ring,’” White said. “’She’s going to kill me.’”
They thought the ring was lost forever.
But the same night, a Brentwood resident spotted the ring and decided to get it back to its rightful owner.
Toril Newman went to Facebook with a picture of the ring, and the caption: “FOUND at LP field Nashville, CMA concert Thursday, 6/11/15 3rd floor boxes – men’s wedding ring. Please help me return this to the owner!!”
After the post was shared more than 2,900 times, the Whites heard the ring had been found.
And even though music fans from all over the world were at CMA Fest, the person who found it lived less than half an hour away.
“We got together and figure out it was ours,” said Susan White. “And she’s going to give it back to us.”
Newman has put the ring in the mail. The Whites are glad they don’t have to buy a new one.
“It’s his wedding ring,” Susan said. “It’s not real valuable, but it means a lot to us.”
