The 24-year-old country singer explained: 'I mean, there’s, like, no big story. We were like, best friends before we dated, and we’re still best friends.'

'It just didn’t work out,' she added. 'I guess that’s how dating goes, right?'

Bones, the winner of season 27 of the reality show competition, joked that maybe she had fallen in love with her dance pro partner. 

'No, no. I have not. I have not fallen in love with my dance partner,' Alaina replied.

It's not known who her dance partner is as ABC decided to keep the celebrity/pro match ups a secret until the season premiere.

Georgia native Alaina found fame after appearing on the 10th season of American Idol on which she was the runner up.

She has released two albums - Wildflower in 2011 and Road Less Traveled in 2017.

She will be heading out on her That Girl Was Me Tour in January, 2020.
