"Yes, this is a newfound thing and I can finally say I found my 'Take Back Home Girl,'" Lane confessed when asked about Bushnell. "Honestly, [for] about a month we have been hanging. I can say that this is my first date ever to any awards show. We're still early on, I do like her. She's awesome."

When asked how the twosome met, Lane said, "over the years, playing shows."

"I think I actually met her at a show at some point and we became friends through that and kept in touch" he explained. "Found ourselves hanging out a lot lately."

Lane revealed that he did watch her on The Bachelor but "did not know her then," adding, that he "absolutely" thought she was attractive when he first saw her on TV.

"She was always very beautiful. The thing that I love about her now, that I didn't know then is that, while she is very beautiful, she has the best personality of anybody I've ever met. And that's my thing, I've always looked for a good personality and she's got it."

On Wednesday, Lane's rep also confirmed the relationship news to ET, stating, "It's brand new and they are enjoying spending time together."

The new couple posed on the red carpet together at the 66th Annual BMI Country Awards in Nashville on Tuesday. Both Bushnell and Lane shared pics on their Instagram Story from the singer's rooftop performance that same day.
