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 CD Drive, in L.A. But the couple plan to reunite Dec. 7 in Hidalgo, Texas, as they close the tour out with a nine-city jaunt that ends in San Jose two weeks later. While Colton won't be joining Clarkson when her three-week UK/Ireland tour kicks off in Manchester in February, it seems the pair will find plenty of quality time off the road. "It's very serious," says the source. "He's just a great guy and very normal. They're totally into each other."
