We love love. We don’t much care who it is or how they share it. Whether it’s big and bold, cute and cheesy or private and precious, it’s one of the most positive and powerful emotions there is and we love it.
Apparently, Miranda Lambert’s sweet fella, Anderson East, loves it too, because when the beautiful blonde planted a wet one on his cheek in an Instagram photo, he was grinning from ear to ear. And it is adorable.
Miranda captions the photo saying that Anderson is about to appear on NBC’s “Today” and, like a good girlfriend would, she also mentions that his new album, “Encore,” was released on Jan. 12.
Anderson appeared on “Today” to promote that new project, with a performance of the sexy and gritty “All On My Mind.” The Big Apple stop also marks the kickoff his world tour which continues in New York before heading to Nashville and then crossing the big pond for dates in the U.K., Germany and Sweden. He’s then back in the U.S. for an intense tour that extends into May.
The curly-haired Alabama native, who has made it clear that “Encore” is not a country album, did admit to the “Huffington Post” that Miranda most definitely had a role in the making of his new collection, but not as a singer. “She just makes me look bad,” he said. “She’s unbelievably more talented than I will ever be. She’s more better-looking as well … She’s the best … She was sweet enough to have me sing on her new record.”
He did say that Ran stepped in as more of a confidant and a consultant, sharing her opinion on the album’s content. “She is arguably one of the best singers of all time. So you got a pretty good opinion right there,” he said.
Mmmmm, yeah. We agree with you there, Anderson.
We sure hope Miranda and Anderson are squeezing in as many of those sweet kisses as they can in the next week because it looks like life is about to get super crazy for them both. With Miranda on the road from January to March with Jon Pardi on the “Livin’ Like Hippies Tour,” and then in July and August on “The Bandwagon Tour” with Little Big Town, and Anderson on the “Encore World Tour” most of the year, this couple is really going to have to work hard to see each other, at least in the first half of the year. But as with most young couples in love, they make it work and we have all the faith in the world they’ll figure it out.
Currently, it looks like Ran’s schedule will ease up late in the summer and, although that could change, it could mean that she is working on a new album for her beloved fans. Nothing has been announced yet, though, so we’ll just be sitting here with our fingers crossed.
Congratulations Anderson on the new album!
