Miranda Lambert makes first public appearance with new love at ACMAs

Miranda Lambert made her first public appearance with her new boyfriend Anderson East at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday (03.04.16).

And it was quite a night for the blonde beauty - who stunned in a plunging yellow gown - as she also picked up two awards at the ceremony at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Miranda won the award for Female Vocalist for the seventh consecutive year and was also victorious in the Vocal Event of the Year category for her 'Smokin' and Drinkin' collaboration with Little Big Town.

At the ceremony, hosted by Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan, Miranda also performed 'Tush' while her former husband Blake Shelton opened the show with his song 'Came Here To Forget', which is reportedly inspired by his new girlfriend Gwen Stefani.

Blake and Miranda announced their shock split last year and both quickly moved on with new partners.

Meanwhile, Chris Stapleton was the big winner on the night, taking home a total of four awards, including Male Vocalist of the Year, New Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for 'Traveller' and Song of the Year for 'Nobody to Blame'.

Other winners included Entertainer of the Year: Jason Aldean, Vocal Duo of the Year: Florida Georgia Line and New Female Vocalist of the Year: Kelsea Ballerini.
