It is starting to look like newly single Miranda Lambert may have already found love, and it is with one of the most eligible bachelors in country music. Celeb Dirty Laundry is sharing that the sources say Miranda is now dating Sam Hunt, and the two have been an item for a couple of months. Sam and Miranda are working together a lot lately and planning their tour, which will happen in 2016. Hunt will be on the road with her as Miranda’s opening act, which, of course, will give them a lot of time to get this relationship going.
An insider even spoke out to OK! Magazine about what is going on between Sam and Miranda.
“Miranda and Sam can’t help but flirt. Spending time with Sam has been a huge lift for Miranda. They are getting very close, he makes her feel sexy and that is exactly what Miranda needs right now.”
The source went on to explain that Miranda Lambert and Sam Hunt don’t have plans to come out about their relationship anytime soon. They want to actually keep it all quiet for now. This will make things easier if Miranda and Sam can’t make it work long-term.
Miranda Lambert recently split from country artist Blake Shelton. The two were able to get their entire divorce taken care of in less than two weeks. Miranda Lambert seems to be handling things okay since the split, but of course things have changed a lot for these two.
Back when news came out that Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton were getting a divorce, TMZ was able to catch Sam Hunt and ask his opinions on their divorce. This country singer was actually very classy in what he had to say about her. Sam didn’t really know why women swoon over country stars like him so much easier. Sam shared that better music comes when someone is broken up. Hunt said that when he is going through things, his music is a little better, so the same might be true for Miranda Lambert.
Sam Hunt explained that he has been single for a while. They did ask him if he is looking for a steady woman, and Hunt shared that he would be when he has time. The fact that he is on tour with Miranda Lambert would give them the time to work on their relationship. Ever since Sam Hunt entered the country scene, he has stayed single, even though there was a small rumor that Andi Dorfman of The Bachelorette hooked up with him for one night.
In 2016, Miranda Lambert will be touring with Kenny Chesney, according to Radio.com. Old Dominion and Sam Hunt will be the opening acts for the two while they are on tour. This will make an amazing concert that Lambert fans do not want to miss out on seeing next year. Chesney recently spoke out about how he feels about having Miranda Lambert on his tour.
“Miranda is the real deal. She’s a songwriter, first, and a real vocalist. She puts it all out there when she’s on stage, and I loved touring with her so much in 2009, I can’t believe it’s taken us this long to get her back out here — because I love every single thing about who she is as an artist and a person.”
