Miranda Lambert is reportedly dating Sam Hunt ahead of their 2016 tour. Following her July divorce from former husband Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert is said to be flirting heavily with her soon-to-be tour mate. In fact, one report by Movie News Guide on December 16 claimed the couple may be “in love.”
Below is what the site revealed.
“Country singers Sam Hunt and Miranda Lambert are the latest rumored couple in town. Reports claim that the two are getting closer to each other while preparing for their concert tours.”
Miranda Lambert and Hunt have yet to confirm their alleged romance, and so far, there has been no physical evidence of them being “in love.” However, with their 2016 tour just months away, they are certainly spending tons of time together. And in the coming months, they’ll be together even more.

In an odd turn of events, Miranda Lambert’s alleged beau performed on last night’s The Voice finale, where her ex-husband, Shelton, currently stars with his new girlfriend, Gwen Stefani.
Following Miranda Lambert’s divorce in July, Stefani announced her own divorce from her husband of 13 years, Gavin Rossdale. Then, in November of this year, she and Shelton went public with their romance in Nashville. At the time, many found their PDA to be insensitive due to the fact that Shelton and Miranda Lambert had attended the Country Music Awards separately just hours before. Still, in interviews since their public debut, Miranda Lambert has had nothing but good things to say about her former partner, as well as their four-year marriage.

Last month, weeks after Shelton and Stefani’s debut, a source spoke to E! News, confirming Miranda Lambert had recently begun dating again. Although the source didn’t identify anyone the country star was spending time with, they noted that her romance, or romances, were “casual.”
“[Miranda Lambert] is doing wonderful! She is staying busy and really happy. She is dating and enjoying single life… [Miranda Lambert] is taking things slow and just going with the flow. It’s all about her now though. Her friends think she is in a great mind space.”
While Miranda Lambert and her ex-husband had no children of their own, the country singer is hopeful that she will one day settle down, remarry and start a family.
“[Miranda Lambert] can’t wait to one day have children, if it’s meant to be, and have a husband again. She has not given up on love.”
But for now, claimed the source, Miranda Lambert’s “music, friends and family” are what she’s focused on, and what makes her the happiest.
“[Miranda Lambert] is excited for the holidays and New Year. She plans to be with her friends and family,” the source added.
As Celebrity Dirty Laundry revealed in October, OK! Magazine was first to report news of Miranda Lambert’s potential romance with Hunt, claiming the two couldn’t help but flirt with one another after meeting ahead of their tour. According to the report, Miranda Lambert and Hunt were getting close just months after her divorce. The magazine source also claimed Hunt made Miranda Lambert feel sexy, which was just what she needed after her highly publicized divorce from Shelton.
At the same time, it was noted that Miranda Lambert was planning to keep her new romance on the down low — at least for the time being.
Miranda Lambert’s tour with Hunt begins in March of next year, and will take the pair to a number of different countries, including Ireland, England, and Scotland.
