Could Kelly Clarkson be getting engaged soon? Perhaps. She's been dating Nashville music industry executive Brandon Blackstock for several months, and the singer gushes that she's "completely head over heels for him."

Clarkson first met her beau when she was working with Rascal Flatts. Blackstock's father, Narvel Blackstock, is Clarkson's manager, and is also married to Reba McEntire.

"I really didn’t know he was [my manager's] son and it was kind of weird. I was like, ‘Dude, I gotta know that guy,'" Clarkson tells Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM morning show. "We were just in a room together, and then he came up and said he was from the same home town as me and I was like, ‘Oh, we’re so getting married.’ I was so that girl. When he became single, I was on the prowl.”

Clarkson gushes freely about her newfound love, and doesn't seem to mind if it doesn't exactly mesh with her fiercely independent image from just a few years ago. “Once you finally fall in love with someone and you are so comfortable with them, it makes you more comfortable in your skin," she reveals. "It makes you comfortable as an artist and it makes you more confident. It also makes you confident because you have a buddy to throw things off of. I know that doesn’t sound like ‘cool, hard core, I’m Miss Independent girl,’ but it’s the truth. I’m completely head over heels for him, he knows that."

So could wedding bells be in the future for these two? It certainly seems possible, if not immediate. “It’s weird how life kind of puts you in certain situations," Clarkson says. "We’re taking it slow, and we’re enjoying each other. I’m from a family of broken marriages, but we will definitely break that trend one day.”
