Lauren Bushnell and Chris Lane had all the right reasons to look cute on the red carpet at the 2018 Country Music Awards in Nashville. The awards show will be hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley for the 11th year in a row.

On Wednesday, E! News confirmed that the former Bachelor contestant and the country singer were a couple after they stopped by the 66th Annual BMI Country Awards and posed for photos together there, too. At the CMAs, Bushnell wore a see-through nude and orange dress that had a long slit that showed off her legs. Lane donned a silky looking navy suit with a maroon shirt and matching suede shoes (but no, they weren't "Blue Suede Shoes").

Lane's rep confirmed their budding romance to E! News and said that it's relatively new and the two of them are just enjoying spending time together.

Both Bushnell and Lane posted photos together on their social media accounts on Wednesday. 

In July, the "Take Back Home Girl" singer revealed to Taste of Country that he was single and pretty ready to mingle. As if by divine chance, he told the site about his potential interest in being the leading man on The Bachelor. "Providing I would have enough time to do it, I would," he said. "I wanna be the guy who gets to choose between all the girls."

Bushnell was previously linked to Devin Antin, but the two broke up in August. She was also engaged to Ben Higgins on The Bachelor, but they parted ways after a rocky engagement in May 2017.

Well, it seems like Lane has just given out his first Bachelor rose.
