Not long after divorcing superstar Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert met Anderson East. If you listen to The Weight of These Wings, the meeting wasn’t planned or calculated and caught MIranda and Anderson off-guard.
Miranda’s song, “Pushin’ Time” literally details the day they met, September 12, 2015.
Oh, how I remember well
The sunset on september 12th
I disappeared to get a drink
You still kept your eyes on me
I didn’t plan on falling fast
I didn’t know I could be kissed like that
Now I’m trading miles for minutes
This bed’s too big without you in it
For his part, Anderson’s new song, “Girlfriend” is kind of inspired by Miranda, but it’s more tongue-in-cheek.
But, recently, Anderson got a little more candid than usual about his relationship with Miranda, telling InStyle how they keep the romance alive, “There’s a true admiration there and a large level of understanding on both sides, for sure. It’s always difficult to be a traveling musician and still keep things together. Understanding is a huge factor.”
Sounds simple enough.
Also, it should be noted that Anderson prefers to wear Costco brand underwear over any other.
