Johnny Depp and fiancée Amber Heard  headed down to Heard's home state of Texas recently for a whirlwind getaway, and boy was it jam-packed!

The 50-year-old actor started the trip off by accompanying his leading lady to the 2014 Texas Film Awards in Austin, where Heard was honored with the Rising Star Award. The two posed together on the red carpet, and the blond beauty showed off the huge engagement sparkler on her left ring finger. Joining the happy couple at the event were Heard's parents, Paige Parsons and David Heard.

The "3 Days to Kill" star is a native of Austin, and in February she opened up to Vanity Fair about her Texas upbringing. "My dad is your typical old school Texan. He loves to hunt. Six days of the week, we ate what he killed. He took me to the shooting range from the time I could hold a gun, and I did target practice almost my whole life," she said.

And while in her hometown, Depp showed off his guitar skills. The "Dark Shadows" star jumped on stage to join Willie Nelson while he performed for Rodeo Austin on Saturday. Depp went incognito, dressed in a fedora and vest, and was introduced as "John" instead of his usual nickname, Johnny.
