The only thing country fans seem to know about Anderson East is that he’s Miranda Lambert’s new boyfriend. In an interview with InStyle, Anderson talked about everything from his real name, current tour, and that steamy Mariah Carey duet with Miranda Lambert back on Valentine’s Day.
But when they aren’t on stage together, Anderson says they prefer just relaxing at home.
“[My perfect date] would be sitting at home, not doing anything, watching mindless television,” he says.
Good looking and hunky aside, Anderson seems to be everything that Blake is not. While Blake is bold and boisterous, East seems more laid back and unassuming. Blake is straight ahead country, while East is a musical chameleon. He says he grew up listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top and even Offspring.
He plays piano and guitar and has worked with everyone from Holly Williams to Chris Stapleton. Him and Chris actually became close friends while Anderson was working behind-the-scenes on Chris’ album “Traveller.”
Now armed with his own album, his own sound and a new girlfriend, East says, “…I’ve won the musical lottery. Why I’m here is in the stars. I’m not sure why it happened, but I’m so grateful for it.”
