The singer-songwriter, 28, posted a photo of himself and Lambert wearing ponchos and smiling at each other in front of Niagara Falls. “Happiest of birthdays to this beautiful Texan! I’ll celebrate you today and everyday ahead. @mirandalambert,” he wrote.
The “House That Built Me” songstress, who started dating the Alabama native in late 2015, brought East (née Michael Cameron Anderson) as her date to the 2016 CMA Awards in Nashville last week. They put their arms around each other on the red carpet and stayed close throughout the night.
Lambert posted a photo of the couple from the country music awards show, writing, “I had a great time last night celebrating country music at the CMA Awards with my sweet ❤️ by my side! @andersoneast I’m a lucky girl!”
After trolls criticized the adorable photo with her beau, she fought back on Instagram. “Last night I was all dolled up and ‘out on the town’ with my sweet man at the CMA awards in Nashville. I was excited about the night and posted a picture. Just now when I looked I realized so many comments were judgmental and negative,” she wrote. “Thank y’all for reminding me why I read books, write songs, and spend most of my time with animals and people I trust and love.”
Prior to her romance with East, Lambert split from Blake Shelton in July 2015 after four years of marriage. The Voice coach, 40, has since moved on with Gwen Stefani.
