Jana Kramer walked the red carpet at the 2023 iHeartRadio Music Awards with her new man on Monday evening (March 27), making a public appearance with Scottish soccer star Allan Russell at Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California.
Kramer, 39, and Russell, 42, began dating earlier this year, Kramer revealed after confirming on an episode of Whine Down with Jana Kramer — without revealing his identity at that time — that she’s “not single.” The country artist and actress also said that although she’d never been one for long-distance relationships, she’s “just enjoying being happy” with Russell.
iHeartRadio wanted to know: what’s the key to a successful long-distance relationship?
Kramer — who recently said on her podcast that she “can’t move right now to England,” where Russell lives, because it wouldn’t be fair to her two young children — said a lot of communication is key to maintaining the relationship in between in-person visits.
Kramer added that she’s balancing opening up about her relationship publicly — she’s “sharing to help others” with the lessons she’s learned in dating — and keeping some things private, out of respect to Russell (she did say, however, that it’s possible that Russell could “eventually” be a guest on Whine Down with Jana Kramer).
