Country star and Dancing with the Stars alum Sara Evans, who underwent a very public divorce battle last year, has found love again with beau Jay Barker, a former quarterback at the University of Alabama – and the two now plan to marry, Evans’s rep, Lori Genes, tells PEOPLE exclusively.
“The couple are enjoying their engagement and look forward to their upcoming nuptials,” Genes says. The couple have yet to set a wedding date.
Evans, 37, who has three children with ex Craig Schelske, and Barker, who has four children from his previous marriage, began dating before Thanksgiving last year. Evans’s divorce was finalized in September.
Barker, who led Alabama to a national championship in 1992, hosts a morning radio show in Birmingham. Evans has appeared as an in-studio guest on Barker’s show, The Opening Drive on WJOX, several times and Barker has joined her on some tour dates.
Evans spent the Easter holiday weekend with her family but will resume touring later this week.
