Miranda Lambert is reportedly dating R&B singer Anderson East, but on Wednesday night, it was country singer TJ Osborne who was at her side as she partied in Hollywood, California.
During a short break from her tour, the Keeping of the Flame Tour, and her opening duties with Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert stepped out for a night on the town with several friends, but boyfriend East was nowhere in sight.
“The 32-year-old blonde beauty made sure to turn heads as she showcased her lean bronzed stems in tiny cutoff shorts,” the Daily Mail revealed to readers on August 4. “The Gunpowder & Lead singer was in hysterics as she let loose with her gorgeous gal pals. She paired the ripped Daisy Dukes with a low-cut semi-sheer plain white tee that revealed her black bra beneath.”
Meanwhile, Osborne, who is one half of the band Brothers Osborne, stayed casual in a graphic charcoal grey T-shirt, black trousers and a Baltimore Orioles baseball cap.
In one photo of the country singers, Osborne was seen with his arm on Miranda Lambert’s back, but when it comes to their relationship, it appears to be strictly friendly. After all, Miranda Lambert and Anderson East are said to be going strong nearly one year into their romance.

Miranda Lambert and her ex-husband, Blake Shelton, called it quits in July 2015, and announced they were divorcing after 4 years of marriage. Months later, as Shelton flaunted his romance with Gwen Stefani, she and East revealed they were dating with a post on Instagram, which featured the two of them under a red blanket.
While Miranda Lambert and Anderson East stayed mum on their romance for the first few months, they made their red carpet debut in April at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas. As Shelton also attended the show, Miranda Lambert flaunted her amazing physique in a yellow floor-length gown while East looked handsome in a suit.
Shortly after their red carpet appearance, a source told E! News the couple had a “crazy connection.”
Although East “was a little nervous” to walk the red carpet with Miranda Lambert at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, the source said he was “so happy to be there by Miranda’s side.”
During the awards show, Miranda Lambert “did not avoid” a run-in with her ex-husband, the source explained. “She just did not go out of her way to bump into him. If they did, she would [have said] hi.”
Miranda Lambert “was not nervous at all” about the possibility of seeing her former partner, revealed the source. “She is in a totally different space than [she was] months ago. She has no issues with Blake and is happy that he is in a good place in his life and also in love.”

“Whenever they are together they act like two free spirits…[Miranda Lambert] adores Anderson,” the E! News source continued. “They understand each other. Anderson has given Miranda this confidence she hasn’t felt in some time. They are very supportive with each other and their careers.”
“Anderson and [Miranda Lambert] are serious,” added a source. “They have met both sides of their families. Both their families love what they have. They seem like they are in such a great place. They spend so much time together. They are also very involved with Miranda’s animals. That’s a big part of her life and Anderson is a huge animal lover.”
