Miranda Lambert Reunites With Boyfriend Anderson East During Her Tour
Miranda Lambert’s boyfriend, Anderson East, surprised her fans during a recent concert in Bangor, Maine.
As the singer was joined by her opening acts, Brothers Osborne and Kip Moore, for a performance of “Willin'” by Linda Ronstadt, her boyfriend hopped up on stage as well.
“Blake Shelton’s ex-wife Miranda Lambert recently had a fun duet with her new boyfriend Anderson East, Kip Moore and Brothers Osborne,” the Hall of Fame Magazine revealed to readers on August 30.

According to the report, Miranda Lambert welcomed East to the stage during her performance of “Me and Bobby McGee” by Kris Kristofferson, and as he stood beside her, she sang the lyrics, which may have prompted feelings relevant in their own relationship. After all, the song is about a man named Bobby who sings the blues and East is a blues singer from Alabama.
Miranda Lambert and Anderson East have been dating one another since late last year, months after Lambert’s July, 2015, announcement of divorce.
At the end of last year, rumors began swirling regarding Miranda Lambert’s first post-divorce relationship with East and in January, the 32-year-old country singer confirmed their romance with an intimate photo on Instagram. In the pic, Miranda Lambert was seen lying on the floor with East with a red flannel blanket keeping them warm.
The couple’s relationship debut came just two months after Miranda Lambert’s ex-husband, Shelton, went public with his romance with Gwen Stefani, whom he was starring alongside on The Voice Season 9. While Shelton and Stefani also appeared together on The Voice Season 10, their relationship didn’t turn romantic until last fall.

In April of this year, after months of dating, Miranda Lambert and Anderson East made their red carpet debut at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas, which were also attended by her ex-husband, Shelton, who arrived at the event without Stefani.
After walking the red carpet with her man in a stunning, low-cut yellow gown, a source said Miranda Lambert wasn’t concerned about a possible run-in with her ex-husband, Shelton, and was prepared to say hello if an encounter took place between them.
Although Miranda Lambert was not believed to have come into contact with Shelton during the show, she and East stayed close, and a short time later, it was revealed that she and East have a great connection with one another.
East has a “crazy connection” with Miranda Lambert, a source told E! News. “Whenever they are together they act like two free spirits…Miranda adores Anderson. 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 the 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.”
Miranda Lambert and Anderson East treat their fans to photos of one another from time to time, but when it comes to speaking publicly about their love for one another, the couple has not yet done so. Instead, they have remained silent about their private life as they continue with their romance and respective careers.
