Miranda Lambert Brings New Bae to the ACM Awards Proving She's So Over Blake

Miranda Lambert & Anderson East at ACM Awards

The Academy of Country Music Awards wasn't just about the music -- well, for anyone who's even the slightest fan of Miranda Lambert, that is. In fact, whoever was on #TeamMiranda after her split with Blake Shelton was excited that Lambert finally debuted her relationship with boyfriend Anderson East on the red carpet.

While the two began dating back in December, five months after she and husband Blake Shelton announced their divorce, we all know that taking your beau out on the red carpet is a pretty huge step. It's the official confirmation we all look for when it comes to the latest shippings in Hollywood.

Lambert managed to maintain a fairly low-key relationship with fellow country musician East, but we're thinking anything might be "low-key" compared to the way her ex and his new girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, have paraded their relationship since being outed in late October. (Which is also cool, so no shade toward them.)

But, we are impressed that Lambert remained a class act throughout everything. Not that we thought she'd be anything other than that -- but, woman to woman, we understand how hard it can be just seeing your ex come across your Facebook timeline. And, frankly, we're far too horrified to even begin imaging what it might be like having to see an ex all over the Internet, or even running into him at business affairs -- like, oh, say, the ACM Awards (where she and Shelton both performed).

However uncomfortable she may have felt, she didn't allow the news to push her into anything she wasn't ready for, and now she looks super happy, snuggled up next to East -- and we couldn't be happier for her.
