Miranda Lambert may not ring in the New Year as a single lady.

The 32-year-old country singer has reportedly been dating Americana/R&B singer Anderson East for the past month following her split from husband, Blake Shelton, in July.

"They are really enjoying each other's company," a source told Us Weekly. According to the magazine, the new lovebirds are also planning to spend New Year's Eve together.

East -- real name Michael Cameron Anderson -- is a relative unknown in comparison to Lambert's previous relationships. He hails from Athens, Alabama, and came up on the country music scene in Nashville after paying his dues as a session musician. According to his Instagram profile, the 27-year-old enjoys hobbies like playing music and hunting. He also recently appeared on "Late Night With Seth Meyers."

According to friends of Lambert, Easton is a good fit for her and a nice way for her to get back onto the dating scene.

Lambert and Shelton, who dated for six years before getting hitched in a country-themed wedding in 2011, announced their divorce in July with a joint statement: "This is not the future we envisioned. And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately."

Since their split, Shelton has moved on with his fellow "The Voice" coach Gwen Stefani. They have been happily sharing PDA-filled snaps and even spent the holidays together at Shelton's Oklahoma home.

Lambert also enjoyed a nice holiday, but caught backlash from fans after showing off a new fur coat she got from her grandma.

Bad press over the coat aside, it's nice to see Lambert back on the dating scene and hopefully this new man is the perfect rebound.
