Love is in the air for two of country music's newest stars. Brantley Gilbert recently confirmed that he has been quietly dating Jana Kramer for a few weeks.

"Just to answer your question, yes, and I'm a very very happy man," he replied to Atlanta radio station WKHX when asked if the two were an item. "Yes, I'm dating Jana Kramer."

Rumors of the blossoming relationship began when the radio-show hosts, Cadillac and Dallas, were invited onto the former "One Tree Hill" star's bus and saw a photo of her new beau in her bunk. While the singer has remained decidedly coy on the subject, her boyfriend seems eager to make their relationship public.

"We're going to sit together [at the CMA Awards]," the New Artist of the Year nominee reveals. "We're gonna walk the carpet."

The new couple may have to settle for a long-distance courtship for a while. Brantley is currently on the road with his Hell on Wheels tour, joined by Uncle Kracker, Greg Bates and Brian Davis as opening act on select dates. See a list of his upcoming concerts here.

Perhaps the happy couple will get a little face time during the CMA Awards telecast. The live, star-packed gala, hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, airs Nov. 1 at 8:00 PM ET on ABC.
