A recent (unofficial) announcement has country lady, Miranda Lambert, dating up-and-coming Rhythm & Blues singer, Anderson East. Following a very public divorce from fellow country artist, Blake Shelton, this is the first announcement about Lambert’s dating life since the two split in July.
With reports saying that Lambert’s dating Mr. East and additional swirling rumors about the two, we decided to give y’all a crash course on who her alleged new beau is!
“Anderson East” is a professional moniker used by the artist. He was born Michael Cameron Anderson and is originally from the northern part of Alabama.
In a recent interview, East opened up about where the title came from. “Well, Delilah is one of the characters in the Book of Judges, [it’s] the story of Samson and Delilah. Samson was like the strongest man alive. God blessed him with this superhuman strength but it all laid in his hair. He’s infatuated with [Delilah], totally in love with her, told her secrets and that was the crumbling of the strongest man that’s ever lived. That’s kind of the thread through the record: the woman that saved the crumbled man.”
What do y’all think about this fella as a potential suitor for Miranda Lambert? Check out East’s first single “Satisfy Me” from his debut album in the video below!
