Kelsea Ballerini, Chase Stokes Light Up the CMA Awards Red Carpet
Ballerini arrived at the 2023 CMA Awards Wednesday night wearing a silky ballerina-pink satin draped gown from Christian Siriano’s 2024 collection. The songstress’ elegant one-shoulder piece featured a dainty yet sexy thigh-high slit. She then completed the outfit with matching pink bow heels, some sparkling earrings, and a bold red lip.
Stokes, for his part, looked proud as her plus-one, donning a chic black-on-dark charcoal tuxedo and sans tie.
The couple surely got flirty for their poses on the red carpet. Ballerini embraced Stokes and playfully gave him a peck before the event began.
The “Penthouse” singer is a two-time CMA Award winner. This year, she was nominated for Female Vocalist and Album of the Year for her acclaimed Rolling Up the Welcome Mat. Unfortunately, Ballerini failed to secure any of the awards in these categories. Nonetheless, that didn’t let the country songstress down. She was even seen serenading Stokes while barefoot in a room backstage.
Since 2014, Ballerini has been one of the fan-favorites in country music. She recently marked an awesome success in her career, headlining a sold-out show in her hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee.
He Says Their Relationship Has Been a “Blessing”
This week, Stokes spoke about his romance with Ballerini as he attended the CFDA Awards at New York City’s Museum of Natural History. Chatting with ET on the red carpet, the Outer Banks actor revealed that he had just flown into the Big Apple after bonding with his girl in Nashville.
“She’s working, she’s doing her thing, I’m doing my thing,” he said. “We got stuff going on.”
He went on to state that spending summer together has progressed their relationship.
“It’s been such a blessing over the last couple of months, ’cause we’ve had the time to do it. I’m just, I’m happy as a bean,” he said.
Previously, Ballerini shared that she’s recently been writing new music. According to the “Mountain with a View” singer, her upcoming pieces might be about the happy memories she’s currently experiencing.
“I’m having wins right now that I’ve never had in my life,” she said. “And I’m trying to not downplay those and I’m trying to be present and know that I’m deserving of that and all those things.”
