Miranda Lambert is single, ready to mingle, and also ready to spend some of her riches on a very special bachelorette pad in which to heal any remaining wounds from her split with Blake Shelton. Lambert just acquired a $3.4 million haven that includes three residences (two of which are cute cabins), a brook complete with bridge, a barn, and much more, according to Variety.
Located about 60 minutes south of Nashville and close to Primm Springs, Tenn., the acreage includes a lake that has a boathouse and dock, storage buildings for farm equipment, an enormous garage and workshop, and walking trials. Take one of those lighted trails and you end up at a pavilion by the creek that can seat 60, complete with a stage from which Miranda can give private concerts.
Among the residences, the bigger cabin features a fireplace, living/dining room perfect for entertaining, a big bathroom, and more attractions. The other cabin also has a fireplace and various rooms, with the claw-footed bathtub perched before a picture window.
But it may not be just for that bachelorette on her own. Lambert, 32, began dating singer Anderson East, 27, in December and the two have increasingly been flaunting their blossoming romance. Miranda recently gushed about their romantic weekend together, reported the Daily Mail.
Lambert has been turning to social media to share the progression of their romance, and her most recent post revealed that they were making beautiful music together.
“Weekend well spent. @andersoneast,” wrote Miranda. “#writin’ #singin’ #overallsandbeer #pencilandpaper #thecountry #weekendsoff #recharging #tennessee.
Lambert and her new beau went to Aspen to ski in December. Miranda shared a photo of the two canoodling beneath a blanket.
“The snuggle is real @andersoneast,” emphasized Lambert.
Miranda and Blake, 39, were married for four years. He has since found love with Gwen Stefani, and they have been sharing their own romance on social media.
That may be one reason Lambert has been so diligent about documenting her hook-up on social media, pointed out Us Weekly.
Miranda also posted a shout-out to her beau about his singing.
“It takes a man to teach a man”- @andersoneast @raytair Learning is out today! #SouthernFamily #whatasong #whatasinger,” Lambert posted.
In addition to Anderson, the Southern Family compilation album includes Miranda, Zac Brown and Jason Isbell.
“She couldn’t have picked a better dude to have fun with,” one of East’s friends told Us. “Anderson is the coolest guy.”
But it hasn’t been easy for Miranda ever since Shelton confirmed that he was dating Stefani, reported ET.
“Miranda tried to seem happy, but you could tell she was hurting,” said an observer at the CMA Awards. “It was a great night for her because she won an award, but still hard for her.”
Lambert won Female Vocalist of the Year for the sixth year in a row.
“I needed a bright spot this year,” said Miranda.
The singer was also seen trying not to cry while singing “Bathroom Sink.” However, Lambert bravely rocked the red carpet in pink hair and a stunning gown.
“When complimented on her dress, her stylist said, ‘See! It is your revenge dress,’ and Miranda responded, ‘Absolutely!’” said a source.
It wasn’t just a revenge outfit. Lambert also rocked a revenge body, and she worked hard to achieve that sleek physique, reported PopSugar.
Miranda shared her secrets on her website, and there was no surgery involved.
“The healthy and good old-fashioned way. Watching what I eat and working out with my trainer Bill Crutchfield,” revealed Lambert.
Miranda avoids junk food by turning to bananas and almonds when she’s touring on the bus. She’s also become a fan of green juice, and has learned to put the salad dressing on the side when she eats vegetables.
“I don’t want Cheetos anywhere around me!” exclaimed the singer.
In addition to working out with her trainer, Lambert takes English riding lessons. The fitness regime includes circuit training, resistance bands and bodyweight movements.
Is all this helping Miranda recover from Shelton? Lambert will be hurting if her ex and Stefani wed or have a baby, said a source cited by IBT.
Initially, Miranda thought her former husband was showing off his new relationship. Now, however, Lambert has a different perspective, according to the same insider.
“At first she thought he was flaunting it, but it has come to a point where she sees he is just moving on and that is exactly what she should be doing herself,” said the source.
However, two possibilities in the future could hit hard.
“Admittedly, though, if Blake has a child with Gwen or gets married to Gwen, that will hit a little hard,” noted the insider.
