Country star and Dancing with the Stars alumna Sara Evans, who underwent a very public divorce battle last year, has found love again in the form of Jay Barker, a former star quarterback for the University of Alabama.

The two are engaged, according to People magazine!

“The couple are enjoying their engagement and look forward to their upcoming nuptials,” Sara Evans’ rep says.

The couple have yet to set a wedding date.

Sara Evans,  who has three children with ex Craig Schelske, and Jay Barker, who has four children from his previous marriage, began dating before Thanksgiving.

Evans’ divorce from Craig Schelske was finalized in September.

Barker, who led Alabama to a national championship in 1992 and started for the Crimson Tide for several years, hosts a radio show in Birmingham.

Sara Evans has appeared as an in-studio guest on Jay Barker’s show, The Opening Drive on WJOX, several times and Barker has joined her on some tour dates.

Congratulations to the happy couple.
