Carrie Underwood brought her favorite new companion, Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford, along with her to hit up the NYC talk show circuit promoting Carnival Ride yesterday morning. Hey, if a girl wants to gaze into her boytoy's "beautiful blue eyes," can't blame her for having him tag along. Chace is certainly on the upswing with his fame, but he's definitely a lucky boy getting to be with Carrie for now. If he's smart he'll stick around to be by her side on red carpets to come, including for her just announced performance at Movies Rock in December. Sounds like he's on the right track, calling ahead to dinner and making sure they have Cristal so he can toast her album's success. Well played. Who knows if this puppy love will last, but for now they're pretty freaking cute together, right?
