Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

In the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly, Carrie Underwood says, yeah, she and Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo were this close to being a couple. (This, after previously insisting they were just good friends.) But Romo wouldn't commit -- couldn't, says the former American Idol, who's now dating some other dude from Dallas. And why not? Yup -- football.

"At one point it seemed like [being a couple is] where it was headed," she says, "but point blank, he is about football. I don't know if it's that I'm not quite his type or whatever, but I don't think he's at the point in his life where he would be willing to sacrifice football. He hated so much that people thought that he was paying more attention to me and that was causing him to not do well."

Best. News. Ever. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
