Gavin DeGraw Post-'DWTS' -- What is He Up to This Summer?

Yahoo Contributor Network

Gavin DeGraw was voted off "Dancing With the Stars" Tuesday night after spending the majority of the competition in the bottom three. Latin night proved to be his downfall, though.

He's taking the elimination in stride, though.

"To my friends at DWTS. Love you guys and I had the BEST time!!!! Go get em! Free tickets for you ALL to my shows this summer! Love Gavin," he tweeted on Wednesday.

Don't worry too much for the "Sweeter" singer, he's got plenty to do this summer.

The hard-working musician won't be crying into his dancing shoes, though - he's set to hit the road on May 25 with singer Colbie Caillat, starting in Simpsonville, S.C., and going until June 29 in Highland Park, Ill.

He'll also do some other dates with other opening acts like country singer David Nail.

Gavin DeGraw Going Country?

DeGraw recently moved from New York City to Nashville and is exploring his country side.

"What surprised me most was the amount of night life," he told AOL Music of his country side. "You're there to have a good time, and those people know how to have a good time. It's something that exists culturally in Nashville. People like good musicians playing good songs."

He's also considering performing with a variety of country artists like Nail. He's also performed with superstars like Kenny Chesney. There might be a country album in the works, too.

"I've got a song that I wrote for this album that I think is really the type of song that has that potential to go in both directions," he added of the song "Soldier" from his "Sweeter" album.

Gavin DeGraw's Future: Girlfriend?

The singer is usually pretty mum on his love life, but is he dating his "DWTS" co-star Karina Smirnoff? No, she calls herself his "fake TV girlfriend, but they're actually more "like brother and sister."

"I think Gavin has natural swagger, and that quality in the Rumba is going to come across on the dance floor really well," she later told MTV. "He's definitely a guy's guy, being masculine and yet still very sexy. It's a difficult combination, his hip action."

She added that women definitely loved it, despite his embarrassment over being "sexy."

Well, Gavin - you won't be single for long. We'll happily get in line if you need someone.
