Get it, girl! Miranda Lambert stunned on the red carpet at the 2016 CMA Awards on Wednesday, November 2, with one very important accessory on her arm — boyfriend Anderson East.
The couple of 11 months strutted down the carpet in coordinating styles, with East, 28, in a white dress shirt, black tie and black suit, and Lambert, 32, in a low-cut, black-and-sheer Georges Hobeika gown that showed off her tanned and toned figure, along with Monika Chiang heels, a Lee Savage clutch and jewelry by Hearts on Fire, Borgioni, Butani and Doves.
The “Vice” songstress is up for Female Vocalist of the Year, up against some of country’s biggest names, like Kacey Musgraves, Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini and Maren Morris.
This is far from the pair’s first stroll down the red carpet together. Lambert and the Nashville-based singer made their debut at the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards in April.
East and Lambert started dating last December, and have kept their relationship relatively low-key, occasionally sharing cute posts to social media but otherwise curbing their PDA. In August, however, Lambert couldn’t resist showing off her love for her beau with a T-shirt with East’s name emblazoned across the front during the Irvine, California, stop of her Keeper of the Flame tour.
In an interview with Billboard magazine over the summer, Lambert admitted that she had a tough time following her divorce from ex Blake Shelton (the couple called off their marriage in July 2015). The country superstar admitted that working on new music, however, helped her to cope with the changes.
"Every record I’ve ever made has been a reflection of where I am right then in my life, however old I am. And I’ve never held back at all," she said at the time. "But this time with what I happened to be going through in my life, being honest was never really a choice. Everybody knew anyway. So I just said, I’m gonna journal it, and — good days and bad days — use it for my art."
