5 Times Miranda Lambert + Anderson East Stage-Bombed Each Other
Miranda Lambert and Anderson East continue to tease with collaborations, onstage flirting and flat-out takeovers of one another’s shows. It’s gone both ways, but here are our favorite collaborative moments from the country couple.
East and Lambert confirmed they were dating in late 2015, and since then have barely missed a chance to bring each other onstage. Sometimes (like the day before East’s 30th birthday) one didn’t know the other was going to be joining him. In most cases, however, the couple dragged, pushed or pulled one another to a microphone waiting center-stage. Not seen on this list is an August 2016 coming together to sing “Me and Bobby McGee” in Maine, and an all-call performance of “Woke Up This Morning (With My Mind Stayed on Freedom)” in Chicago in January. There were just too many people on stage to include it as a true collaborative effort.
Lambert and East shared three songs on her newest The Weight of These Wings album, including a duet called “Pushin’ Time.” They co-wrote two other songs, “Getaway Driver” and “Well-Rested.” Both are talented songwriters and dedicated to the craft, so it figures that as their relationship continues to blossom, fans will get more from this country couple.
The next chance for them to make music together may be on East’s next album. It’s been two years since the 30-year-old released Delilah and fans are itching for something new.
Miranda Lambert jumped Chris Stapleton‘s stage in L.A. to sing “My Girl” with Anderson East and the headliner. The female country singer didn’t add too much in the way of vocals — her hip sway was on point — but East sure did. Hear clips from this performance below.
“You’ll Always Be My Baby”
“Stay With Me”
During a Lambert Highway Vagabond Tour stop in Bossier City, La., the country singer brought her boyfriend on stage to sing the Faces‘ “Stay With Me.” Watch as they get a little flirty on the classic rocker.
On July 16, 2017, Lambert surprised her boyfriend by taking his stage for a slow, kind of dark version of “Happy Birthday” that his fans loved. The singer would turn 30 the next day.
Lambert and East co-wrote two songs together on her The Weight of These Wings album, but their collaboration on “Pushin’ Time” is best. It’s a love song that could be their story. Neither has said as much, but read the lyrics and then listen to decide for yourself.
