When it comes to finding love, most people look for someone they can connect with. Of course, they say opposites attract. But for most of us, it takes sharing similar interests to make a relationship work.

Miranda Lambert and her beloved beau, singer-songwriter Anderson East, certainly have plenty in common with each other. After all, they both love dogs and they both play music professionally. They are also both in the midst of very busy schedules right now. Not only did Ran just kick off her 2018 “Livin’ Like Hippies Tour,” but Anderson is also on the road in support of his brand-new album, “Encore” — the follow-up to his acclaimed 2015 album “Delilah”.

With such busy tour schedules in place, Anderson shared how he’s able to focus on his music when rumors, good or bad, begin to swirl about his high-profile romance with Miranda.

“I think we just keep our head down and keep working,” the 30-year-old rising star told “The Tennessean” in a new interview. “We’re trying to make sure that people want to come see us … and we want to show up and deliver … I’ve given up trying to imagine things or set goals. My life has already far exceeded the expectations I had of what music could bring someone.”

Miranda and Anderson’s relationship has certainly been a hot topic for fans, even though the couple tends to keep their dating life largely private. Fans may recall that in 2017, shortly after their two-year dating anniversary, reports suggested that they would be married by the end of the year.

Despite the never-ending tabloid and media interest, it’s easy to see that Miranda, too, is focused primarily on music and her fans, as her latest post on Instagram shows her donning sparkly boots for her first tour stop.

“’Livin’ Like Hippies Tour’ night one! Let’s do this Greenville, South Caroline,” she captioned of her first night on the trek, alongside a video that features her representing her new cowgirl swag.

Miranda’s “Livin Like Hippies Tour,” which hits 23 cities, including Atlanta, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Cleveland and San Diego, currently runs through March 24. The trek includes Jon Pardi, as well as Brent Cobb, Turnpike Troubadours, Lucie Silvas, the Steel Woods, Sunny Sweeney, Ashley McBryde and Charlie Worsham on select dates.

Meanwhile, Anderson’s “Encore World Tour,” which launched on Jan. 11, goes through major cities in America including Houston, Los Angeles and Chicago, and heads overseas to Germany, Sweden and the U.K. before ending in May.
