Miranda Lambert surprised everyone back in February when she announced she had married NYPD officer Brendan McLouglin, and now she’s finally opening up about how they first met.
“I met my husband doing press for the Pistol Annies record, this time last year,” Miranda tells the “New York Times.” “Our record came out the day after Halloween, and we did ‘Good Morning America.’ My husband was doing security there for the show.”
And apparently it was her Pistol Annies bandmates Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley who picked Brendan out in the crowd. “My girlfriends, the Annies, saw him and knew I might be ready to hang out with someone,” she added. “They invited him to our show behind my back. They plucked him for me. My security guy Tom, he was in on it too. He said to me, ‘He’s here. And he’s pretty.’”
Miranda noted, “Now the Pistol Annies have three husbands, two ex-husbands, three children, a stepson and 23 animals. We’ve done a lot in nine years!”
