Miranda Lambert has managed to keep her new relationship with Anderson East out of the public eye until now. On the heels of the release of her new single, Lambert is beginning to open up about her newfound love. However, Lambert has a long way to go before she compares to ex-husband Blake Shelton’s public affections with Gwen Stefani.
In a recent post to her Instagram account, Lambert uploaded a short video of two pigs wearing University of Alabama jerseys.
The video was meant as a tribute for Alabama’s national championship victory, with Lambert writing alongside the image, “Somethin’ bout a boy from the south… #Bama @andersoneast…”
At the same time, Lambert also uploaded an image of her and East snuggling with each other. The pair are seen laying down on a couch under a flannel coat in the photo.
“The snuggle is real… @andersoneast,” she wrote in the caption.
While Lambert has only recently begun to share her relationship with East on social media, Movie News Guide is reporting that the two have been together for a few months now. With their relationship now being confirmed, it appears as though Lambert has successfully moved on after her divorce with Shelton this past summer.
In addition to her social media activity, Lambert recently released a brand new single, titled “Sweet By and By.” According to the Boot, Lambert’s newest track is just one of a series of singles on Dave Cobb’s new album, Southern Family.
Along with Lambert’s single, the album will feature a number of exciting country stars, including Brandy Clark, Jason Isbell, Zac Brown, and Jamey Johnson, to name a few. Each track is designed to give the audience a glimpse into the life and upbringing of the artist, and Lambert’s single is no different.
“These are songs written about growing up and songs that are cut that they’ve hear,” Cobb shared. “Maybe one your mother sang to you. Something that means a lot to your family.”
Fans can listen to the entire album after its release date of March 18. In the meantime, Lambert’s song has been released as a special preview for what is to come.
While Miranda Lambert celebrates her new track and relationship with East, Shelton and Stefani continue to spend time together in public. According to Us Magazine, fans recently spotted the two Voice stars together at the movies with Stefani’s children. The group, which included Stefani’s boys – Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 1 – went to the Arclight Theater in L.A. and watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
During the outing, Stefani donned an army style green jacket, blue jeans, and trendy sunglasses. For his part, Shelton stuck to his usual look of a T-shirt, blue jeans, boots, and a baseball hat.
The recent sighting is just one of many that have occurred over the past few months and marks a trend that does not appear to be going away anytime soon. In fact, Stefani and Shelton recently attended a wedding together and took the time to snap a few pics that eventually made their way online.
The two went to the wedding of Shelton’s longtime friend and groomer Amanda Craig. Craig uploaded a few pics of Shelton and Stefani posing with others at the wedding on Instagram. At the same time, an eyewitness at the event revealed the two had quite the evening and were once again unafraid to express their affection.
In fact, the source revealed to Us Magazine that Shelton and Stefani were “kissing and slow dancing most of the night,” while “Blake was looking at Gwen like she was the only woman in the world!”
