E! News has learned that the 28-year-old Nashville actress is dating 28-year-old Brian Hickerson, the man she was spotted holding hands with last week while out to dinner at Craig's in West Hollywood. "He is from South Carolina and moved to Los Angeles to do real estate and acting," a source tells E! News about Hayden's new beau. "He just started getting into the acting business and is going on castings trying to break in the industry."
The insider adds that Hayden and Brian "hit it off" after meeting through mutual friends.
