It seems Carrie Underwood just can’t help staying friends with her exes!


First came her admission that ex Tony Romo still called even as he’s dating Jessica Simpson, and now it seems the sizzling country star remains in contact with another of her old boyfriends: Chace Crawford!


At Wednesday night’s Stand Up For a Cure lung cancer benefit at NYC’s Madison Square Garden, Gossip Girl star Chace told OK! he and Carrie haven’t become strangers, saying they remain friends "cordially."


Chace’s confession makes sense, as OK! spied Carrie – who performed the charity song "Stand Up" at the taping of Fashion Rocks on Sept. 5 – chatting backstage with the Gossip Girl hunk in their first meeting since breaking up in March.

"They were getting on like old pals," an onlooker tells OK


As for a future real life leading lady, Chace has a definite type. He’s said that Tina Fey‘s character Liz Lemon on 30 Rock is what he looks for in a woman, so how about the potential future Vice President?


"I’m not gonna lie, Sarah Palin’s quite attractive," he says.
