Carrie Underwood isn't hiding her relationship with football player Tony Romo anymore. When asked about her date to the award show, Underwood smiled and said,
"We're really good friends and we hang out and we support each other and everything that we do and it's great to have somebody here who's got your back."And naturally Romo had nothing but great things to say about his woman.
"We're just getting to know each other a little better and we'll see where everything goes, but it's just nice to have somebody at the end of the day to talk to who is going through similar things.Speculation on Underwood and Romo's romance first sparked in December 2006 when she attended the Cowboys play the Eagles, during which he was spotted hugging her before the game. They were all over the news again when the singer was spotted on hand celebrating his 27th birthday in April.
"She's got a great personality, so she's really easy to talk to... (and) she loves to talk on the phone."
Meanwhile, at the Country Music Awards last night, Carrie Underwood took home album of the year, top female vocalist and best video honors. Other winners on the night included Kenny Chesney, who took entertainer of the year for the third year in a row and said “it never gets old.” Also, 17-year old Taylor Swift earned buzz with her performance of her hit “Tim McGraw.”
