Miranda Lambert and her new boyfriend, 27-year-old singer-song writer, Anderson East, made their first red carpet appearance together at the ACM Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3. The couple went public with their relationship only a few months ago in January after posting a picture on Instagram of themselves cuddling on a couch under a blanket. As recent as last July, Miranda, 32, divorced her ex-husband Blake Shelton who has publicly moved on with fellow Voice coach, Gwen Stefani, and it seems this country queen has too! Fans are excited to see this musical duo together and looking forward to new music, but who is this new man in Miranda’s life? He’s a relatively new artist on the scene, so not much is known about him publicly, but we did some digging. Here’s a list of 10 things you probably didn’t know about Miranda’s new beau, Anderson East:
10. Real Name
His real name is Michael Cameron Anderson a.k.a. Mike Anderson. He released his first album under this name in 2009 called Closing Credits for a Fire, but in 2010 he officially changed his name to Anderson East, a stage name for the release of his EP album called Fire Demos. He also released an album called Flowers of the Broken Hearted under the name Anderson East. The album must be good because it sold out on Amazon!
