She’s so in love, she’s singing again. Country star Miranda Lambert took the stage with fellow country singers Keith Urban and Dierks Bently on February 22, which marks her first performance since revealing her secret wedding to her new husband, Brendan Mcloughlin on February 16.
Dierks, 43, had both Kieth, 51, and Miranda, 35, as guest performers during his concert at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and the trio performed several country hits, including “Your Cheatin’ Heart” by Hank Williams. Dierks took to Instagram to thank both Miranda and Keith on February 23.
“What can I say about these two and this moment here tonight at Bridgestone Arena,” he wrote. “Other than it’s just good to have pals. Someone like @keithurban, who I sent a text to two days ago that literally started with ‘I hate myself for even texting this, so please just say no, but I’m playing Bridgestone tomorrow night …’ And @mirandalambert, who I randomly bumped into yesterday in Nashville, who asked about the show and said she and her husband were thinking about coming down.”
Miranda announced her secret marriage to her 27-year-old new hubby on Instagram and pretty much blindsided all her fans and followers. “In honor of Valentine’s Day I wanted to share some news,” she wrote in her announcement. “I met the love of my life. And we got hitched! My heart is full. Thank you Brendan Mcloughlin for loving me for…. me. #theone.”
Before her new beau, the Pistol Annies member was married to fellow country music icon Blake Shelton in 2011. Their marriage ended in an unfortunate public divorce in 2015 where both parties accused the other of cheating.
Blake, 42, found out about his ex’s nuptials the same way the rest of the world did, a.k.a via Instagram, but he reportedly isn’t too bothered by it. “Blake was not given a heads-up and doesn’t know her new husband,” a source told Us Weekly. “Since they split they have had almost zero contact.”
