Miranda Lambert will ring in 2016 with a kiss after all. The country singer, who split from husband Blake Shelton in July, has been dating Americana/R&B musician Anderson East for about a month. 

“They are really enjoying each other’s company,” a source close to Lambert reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. East (né Michael Cameron Anderson, 27) and Lambert “are spending New Year’s together,” adds another insider.

First known in Nashville as a session musician and engineer, the Alabama-born avid hunter (just like Lambert!) is a perfect rebound for the 32-year-old Grammy winner. “She couldn’t have picked a better dude to have fun with,” says an East friend. “Anderson is the coolest guy.” 

I met KE$HA once and she was wearing almost the same thing. Following in the footsteps of greatness.

The “Over You” crooner opened up about her divorce from Shelton, 39, in Cosmopolitan’s January issue: “I just want to live a life full of everything. Some of that might mean nights on my porch crying, drinking whiskey and going, ‘Man this sucks right now.’ I don’t necessarily want to know that I have really bad, long, lonely nights ahead of me, but I have had some, and I still have a bunch ahead of me.”

Lambert and The Voice coach, who dated for six years before tying the knot in 2011, announced their divorce in a joint statement to Us Weekly on July 20: “This is not the future we envisioned. And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately.” The country duo finalized their divorce just hours after revealing their split. 

Shelton has since moved on with fellow Voice coach Gwen Stefani. The No Doubt songstress’ rep confirmed to Us exclusively on November 4, just hours before the CMA Awards, that the two are dating.
