Dustin Lynch brought his new girlfriend to the 2019 CMA Awards. The typically private country singer introduced his fans to Kelli Seymour, an actor and model who Lynch has been dating for "awhile."

Talking to Taste of Country prior to the CMAs, the "Ridin' Roads" singer said he and Seymour are "as serious as you can get."

"It feels very serious," he added, stopping short of providing details about what that means other than to confirm they have been an item for quite awhile (there's no ring on her finger). There's not much about her on social media, aside from her profile page at White Cross Management, although Lynch says she is a Southern girl. She is not from his hometown, but ...

Lynch's new Tullahoma album (named after his hometown) will feature a song about Seymour when it's released on Jan. 17. He says fans are likely to know which song it is, but like the rest of the album details, he remained tight-lipped. This is new territory for Lynch. Toward the end he joked that he's an open book about his love life, but then laughed and acknowledged that's not true.

The pair are likely to be seated next to one another during the 2019 CMAs on Wednesday night (Nov. 13).

Remember: The best way to watch the 2019 CMAs is on TV, with ToC on your phone!
