Country superstar Carrie Underwood is in no rush to get married, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t looking for a boyfriend. After all, the American Idol champ recently said, “I’d like to have someone other than my mom to call when I have good news.”
And now, sources tell OK!, it seems that her prayers have come true, as she’s just sparked a very new romance with Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford, with whom the “Jesus Take the Wheel” singer was locking lips last Friday at NYC club Marquee. “They were canoodling all night and stayed until close,” one eyewitness reveals to OK!.
But Chase and Carrie’s whirlwind weekend in the Big Apple was just beginning. Saturday night, the pair enjoyed a romantic dinner at Mario Batali’s Del Posto restaurant and later a few drinks at Soho Grand, where, according an OK! spy, “they held court at their own private table, kissing and not leaving each other’s side,” all before ending up at celeb-fave Rose Bar in the Gramercy Park Hotel.

The friend also notes that the relationship is exciting because “Chace has such an edgy, almost bad boy image on the show and Carrie has such a good girl image, together they’re just hot.”
At 24, Carrie is two years Chace’s senior, but it could still be a match made in heaven as both are from small towns — he’s from Texas and she’s an Oklahoma gal. When reached for comment, a rep for Carrie tells OK!, “We do not comment on her personal life.”
