Later in the night, Keith Urban gushed about the country star and then presented her the prestigious ACM Gene Weed Milestone Award. “In 2005, Miranda came out, and we toured together,” he told the audience. “It’s crazy — that was 14 years ago. What I love about her is that I saw a kindred spirit right away. She did what I used to do: whoever I was opening for, I used to sit in front of the stage and watch every show, and I’d be taking mental notes. She was at the front of my show every night we played, and I remember thinking, ‘I know that person really well.’ And now, watching your journey go from that to making records that were always about you. You followed your muse wherever you went. You made the records you wanted to make. You stayed true to yourself, and here you are accepting this award.”

“I am so humbled,” she said. “I’m standing on this Ryman stage in front of one of my heroes. I mostly just want to thank Nashville, and the people who move here because they loved country music. I couldn’t believe that we’d get to live this amazing life and follow our dreams and just be part of this awesome family. Some days it feels like I’ve been doing it for two days, and some days it feels like 200 years. And I’ll never get over it.”

In February, the Grammy winner shocked her fans when she announced she was no longer single on Instagram. “In honor of Valentine’s Day, I wanted to share some news,” she captioned a photo of herself wearing a wedding gown at the time. “I met the love of my life. And we got hitched! My heart is full. Thank you, Brendan McLoughlin, for loving me for … me. #TheOne.”

All Over the Country
The newlyweds have been galavanting all over the country this summer — from Lake Tahoe to Nashville and New York City — and it looks like they are in a great place. Brendan has been spending time with his love down south, and it seems like he’s really digging the vibes. “He loves Tennessee and wouldn’t move back to New York because he’s so happy there,” a source exclusively told In Touch. “He loves the Tennessee lifestyle.”

Miranda recently debuted her new single called “It All Comes Out in the Wash” in July — her first tune in nearly 15 months — and it seems she is inspired by her real-life romance. “I haven’t had a single out in a long time, and I’m just ready to have new music,” she told Billboard magazine on July 18. “I’m in a new phase of my life and ready to have new music out there that represents that. This one just felt perfect as far as the vibe of it. It’s fun and lighthearted, and I’m really excited about it.”

Even though Miranda and Brendan’s relationship went from 0 to 100, it doesn’t mean that they aren’t in it for the long haul. The Texas native posted a video of her husband cooking some fried chicken in August, and one troll wrote, “It won’t last.” However, Miranda decided to have some fun with the online user. “Sure won’t! I’m gonna eat every piece of it! Can’t waste chicken,” she quipped, referring to the delicious food. Keep the adorable moments coming, you two!
