Kelsea Ballerini made her romance with actor Chase Stokes red carpet official on Sunday (April 2nd) at the CMT Music Awards in Austin, TX. The couple walked the carpet hand-in-hand. Kelsea shared several pictures and videos taken at the show — with Chase popping up in most — on social media with the caption, “in my heartfirst era.”

Before the show, Kelsea told CMT, “I’m really, really happy. … This is our first outing, so I’m like, ‘Come on into my world and then bring me into Charleston.'” Charleston, SC is where Chase shoots the Netflix series Outer Banks.

Kelsea co-hosted the CMT Music Awards alongside Kane Brown. The show aired live on CBS.
