Miranda Lambert and Brendan McLoughlin have been married for a whole year! The couple celebrated one year together on Sunday, January 26, 2020.

Miranda Lambert and Brendan McLoughlin tied the knot last year in a secret ceremony. They kept the news a secret for several weeks.

Their secret wedding reportedly took place at Miranda's Tennessee farm. The pair have since shared sneak peeks of the ceremony.

Miranda honored the occasion with a sweet post on social media site Instagram. She accompanied the touching photo from their wedding day with the caption:

"1 year. I’m so happy to walk through this life with you. Thank you, Brendan, for making me the proudest wife and stepmom. You are the reason for all my new smile lines. I love you."


The wedding was Miranda's second. She had been married to country singer Blake Shelton but they divorced. She opened up to People Magazine about her decision to have a secret second wedding, saying:

"I was married before, and it was a huge wedding and everything was very public. So was my divorce. I learned then that it's not for everybody else. This is my actual life. With Brendan, I made it a point to keep it as private as I could for as long as I could."

She revealed her union to Brendan to only a few people before making the public announcement including her "Bluebird" co-writers, Natalie Hemby and Luke Dick. Lambert told Billboard:

"I felt like for that song I might as well tell my news to my friends, because I felt like it would really add [to it]. And it turned out that it did."

Hemby, a member of The Highwomen, revealed:

"She poured a glass of wine and held up her hand. She goes, 'I got married three days ago.' And Luke and I started laughing; like, we just couldn't believe it. Brendan is so sweet, and they're so happy."
