Miranda Lambert has faced a number of rumors, linking her to different men, since news broke of her divorce from Blake Shelton. However, while Miranda Lambert has yet to show fans any proof of a new romance with anyone, a new report has tied her to another country star.
So, who is the mystery man? According to Eagle Country Online, Miranda Lambert may have recently hooked up with Lady Antebellum vocalist Charles Kelley. That said, their hookup was not personal, but rather a professional collaboration, which could soon hit airways. As the site reported, Kelley, who has been married since 2009, recently shared a photo which included the label, “Miranda,” which may feature a duet with the newly single star.

“Just doing a little mixing of #thedriver record. Miranda who?” Kelley captioned the post, according to Anti Music.
Miranda Lambert and Shelton announced their divorce in July after months of rumors, and months later, Shelton went public with his new romance with Gwen Stefani, with whom he was starring alongside on The Voice. Meanwhile, Miranda Lambert has been linked to Sam Hunt since October.
Below is what a source revealed to OK! Magazine, via KStar Country, at the time.
“[Miranda Lambert] and Sam can’t help but flirt. Spending time with Sam has been a huge lift for [Miranda Lambert]. They are getting very close, he makes her feel sexy and that is exactly what [Miranda Lambert] needs right now.”
In the same report, the source told fans not to expect the music stars to go public with their new relationship, as they were planning to “keep things quiet,” at least for the time being.
While Miranda Lambert and Hunt have likely spent time together in the months since her divorce, that time may have been more professional than romantic, as the two will soon embark on a tour together, which begins early next year. Still, since October, rumors have continued to swirl regarding Miranda Lambert and Hunt, the latest of which came from Hollywood Life. Earlier this month, a source told the site that Miranda Lambert and her upcoming tour mate were “flirting.”
“They don’t go on tour together until early next year, but that hasn’t stopped [Miranda Lambert] and Sam from texting each other pretty much non-stop for the last couple of weeks. They have developed a solid friendship and love flirting with each other.”
“[Miranda Lambert] was basically the first person to congratulate Sam on his Grammy nomination for Best Album and Best New Artist,” the source continued. “She also made big to do about his birthday on Dec. 8. It’s pretty obvious that the feelings are mutual and that they both have crushes on each other.”

Miranda Lambert has also been the target of a Life & Style rumor, which alleged Nicole Kidman her husband, Keith Urban, were playing matchmaker for her after divorce. However, a Gossip Cop report quickly shot the claim down, with a rep for Miranda Lambert claiming there was no truth to the publication’s claims.
While Miranda Lambert continues to face rumors regarding both her divorce from Shelton and her current love life, she appears to be focusing on friends and her career as she heads into the holiday season. On Instagram, Miranda Lambert regularly updates fans with photos of herself and friends, and on Twitter, she’s done the same.
Miranda Lambert is also preparing for her upcoming tour with Hunt, which begins in March 2016.
