It was only last year when the sweet, sexy, sassy Carrie Underwood admitted to being "horrible around guys." That was then, this is now, people.
The 24-year-old country crooner and former American Idol champion seems to be hitting her romantic stride, linking up with Gossip Girl hunk Chace Crawford.
"He's really cute," Carrie Underwood recently said of Chace Crawford, a 22-year-old Texas native. "I've met him and he seems like a really nice guy. He's got cool hair, he's a nice height and he just has beautiful blue eyes." Wow, she's met him!?
The pair stopped by Manhattan's Marquee nightclub last Friday, then popped into Gramercy Park Hotel's hip Rose Bar on Saturday night. Hot stuff!
"At one point, they were holding hands, off to the side of the table, like they didn't want people to see," says an observer.
Earlier this year, the American Idol queen and Academy of Country Music and Country Music Television Video Award winner was linked to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. That relationship appears to be over.
You can catch Chace Crawford on Gossip Girl tonight on The CW.
