Anderson East has “true admiration” for Miranda Lambert.
The “Girlfriend” singer sounds off on his love for his country superstar girlfriend in a new interview with InStyle, revealing their secret to making it work. “There's a true admiration there and a large level of understanding on both sides, for sure,” he says.
“It’s always difficult to be a traveling musician and still keep things together. Understanding is a huge factor.” Anderson is raising eyebrows with new single “Girlfriend,” a track about a man desiring a taken woman. But he assures the mag isn’t about Miranda. “It was something tongue-in-cheek that made us laugh. We were just trying to amuse ourselves,” he says of writing the ditty with co-writers Dave Cobb, Aaron Raitiere and Avicii.
