Texan singer Kelly Clarkson is elated, after finally finding love.

The original American Idol victor, 23, has been romantically linked to rocker Graham Colton, 24, whose GRAHAM COLTON BAND is the opening act on her Behind These Hazel Eyes Tour.

A pal says, "They're both very spiritual and mature for their ages. They are in a committed relationship."

Colton and his band, who have previously opened for John Mayer, MAROON 5 and Dave Matthews Band, are currently on a break from the tour, recording a follow-up to their 2004 debut album DRIVE, in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Clarkson is currently touring Britain.

But the lovebirds will reunite on 7 December (05) in Hidalgo, Texas, as they close the tour out with a nine-city jaunt which ends in San Jose, California, two weeks later.
