Who is Chase Stokes dating? He’s rumored to be in a relationship with Kelsea Ballerini.
However, rumors of Chase’s new relationship were sparked by Chase himself after he posted a photo dump to Instagram on Jan. 13, 2023. The photo carousel included a snap of Chase and country music star Kelsea Ballerini looking cozy at a football game. In the comments, Kelsea even wrote, “go vols.”
Then, on Jan. 17, 2023, TMZ caught up with Chase Stokes in Los Angeles. The outlet told Chase that he and Kelsea make a cute couple, to which Chase responded, “Thank you,” inadvertently confirming the rumors. When asked what drew him to Kelsea, Chase admitted, “She’s a sweet girl. We’re having a good time and that’s all I’ll say.”
Despite the duo mostly playing coy about their relationship, Kelsea finally addressed the dating rumors in a Feb. 22, 2023 episode of the Call Her Daddy podcast. She revealed, “I slid into those DMs. He shoots [Outer Banks] in Charleston, and my manager lives there. … [My manager] was like, ‘You know who’s really cute, like, when you’re ready? Chase.’ I was like, ‘You’re so right.'”
Kelsea also divulged the charming opening line she used: “His handle is ‘hichasestokes’ and I just said, ‘Hi Chase Stokes.'”
Despite the duo mostly playing coy about their relationship, Kelsea also addressed the rumors, this time in a TikTok on Jan. 17. She used a screenshot from DeuxMoi — which showed anonymous tipsters questioning whether her and Chase’s relationship was a “PR relationship,” and claiming that Kelsea had been pursuing the manager of Soho House Nashville — as the background of a video. “I know, I know, I know: Stop reading, stop reading, stop looking,” Kelsea says to the camera. “But what is happening, guys. What? Let’s not do this.”

Previously, Kelsea was married to fellow country music star Morgan Evans, but the pair divorced in August 2022 after five years of marriage. According to People, their divorce was finalized in November of the same year.
Kelsea opened up about her split on the podcast Tell Me About It with Jade Iovine, saying, “For a while, it was kind of like, ‘OK, this is just a new phase of a relationship,’ because relationships go through seasons, right? And it’s not always going to be butterflies and rainbows.”
Kelsea added, ” “For a long time, I was like, ‘Oh this is just… The glitter wears off. That’s what happens.’ And then you get into a phase where you wait for it to come back. And then sometimes it doesn’t.”
Thankfully, it seems like regardless of whether she and Chase want to make a statement about their relationship, they appear to be having a great time with one another!
