Anderson East’s parents are singing Miranda Lambert’s praises. The two-time Grammy winner, 32, aced an early January meeting with her boyfriend’s Athens, Alabama-based family, a Lambert source says in the new issue of Us Weekly.
“Everyone got along,” adds the insider. (Perhaps Lambert’s welcome gift won them over: she and East, 28, bought wine from nearby ABC Beverages January 9.)
East has turned on the southern charm, too. Lambert’s nearest and dearest are fond of the Nashville-based “Satisfy Me” singer, who Lambert dubbed her boyfriend in a January 22 Instagram. Says the insider, “Everybody loves them together.”
For Lambert, the four-month romance is a welcome change from her four-year marriage to fellow country superstar Blake Shelton, 39. “She and Anderson go out in Nashville and nobody bothers them,” says the source. “She could have never done that with Blake. It’s a much calmer, quieter relationship and she’s really happy. She thinks he’s cool and brilliant.”
