Kelly Clarkson hasn't been shy about discussing her new relationship lately, and now we get to meet the lucky guy she calls her boyfriend.
Clarkson and her beau, Brandon Blackstock, stepped out together at a Barn Party Bonfire Celebration in Tennessee last week, marking their official debut as a couple. Blackstock happens to have a connection to the music world as well: He's Reba McEntire's stepson.
The pair, who have been dating since 2011, kept their relationship under wraps until March, and Clarkson's promotional appearances for her talent show "Duets" have brought her love life into the limelight.
While promoting "Duets" last month, Clarkson spoke out about her relationship, joking that it's had quite an impact on her songwriting skills.
"It is killing me," Clarkson told People. "I'm trying to write a tough song and it is coming out like butterflies and rainbows."
During her press rounds, she also revealed to Us Weekly how happy she is with Blackstock.
"I love that I'm in a relationship right now," she said, adding, "I want a life. . . The past five years or so I've found my groove and my balance."
