Kelsea Ballerini and Chase Stokes are couple goals! The country singer and Outer Banks actor first started dating in early 2023, and are so supportive of one another’s respective careers.

Is Kelsea Ballerini Going to Appear in ‘Outer Banks’?
Kelsea teased whether or not she’d join her boyfriend on his hit Netflix show Outer Banks while attending the People’s Choice Country Awards in September 2023. “You know what, his space is his space and mine is mine,” she told E! News on the red carpet, “and being able to show up and support each other just as partners is so beautiful.”
However, after being asked if the couple would ever collaborate on a song together, Kelsea teased, “Never say never, I guess.”
When Did Kelsea Ballerini and Chase Stokes Start Dating?
Kelsea and Chase first went public with their relationship in January 2023, after the Netflix actor uploaded an Instagram carousel post that featured one snapshot of him and Kelsea attending a football game together.
The country songstress spoke about their relationship’s “soft launch” during a podcast episode of “Call Her Daddy” in February 2023.
“We had been hanging out and people got a photo of us at the game, at the championship. And so that was kind of just going,” she recalled. “And he was like, ‘I mean, it’s gonna keep going. So should I just like poke the bear?’ and I was like, ‘Sure.’ And the poking the bear was like a photo of me just like, leaning on him.”
Since then, the two have confirmed their relationship publicly multiple times and made their red carpet debut in April at the 2023 CMT Awards.
“The thing that we’ve decided, and to each their own, is when you’re with someone that you feel secure with and that you’re proud to be with, why not share it?” Kelsea revealed of her and Chase’s public relationship during a July 2023 StyleCaster interview. “He’s also a Virgo; we’re both Labrador Retrievers in human form. It doesn’t take much conversation to be on the same page. It’s been half a year and it’s been great.”
The songstress slid into his DMs, writing, “Hiii chase stokes,” and the Netflix star responded a little over two hours later: “Hey there how u doin.” She then responded, “i’m kels, nice to meet you,” along with a smiley emoji — and the rest was history.
How Does Kelsea Ballerini Feel About Madelyn Cline?
She’s a girls girl! Kelsea didn’t hold back when asked if she felt threatened by Chase spending so much time with his ex-girlfriend Madelyn Cline on the Outer Banks set. “I met [Madelyn], and I talked to her, and she’s lovely and I think she’s wildly talented,” the singer explained in an interview on the Call Her Daddy podcast in November 2023.
She continued, “I think the internet did its best to make it really weird, and it just didn’t work for them. I’m stoked to be on set and vibe with everyone.” Kelsea made it clear that there’s no hard feelings between the two! “I think [Chase and Madelyn] have a beautiful working relationship, and I’m excited to hang with her.” A new friendship on the rise? We hope so!
