Miranda Lambert and New Cop Husband's Marriage Will Be Long Distance

Playing Miranda Lambert’s Police Officer Husband Will Remain in New York City

For country singer Miranda Lambert and her new husband, it might be a long-distance relationship.

New York Police Department officer Brendan McLoughlin is staying on the force, where he is assigned to a precinct in midtown Manhattan. Lambert owns a 400-acre estate outside Nashville, Tennessee.

The two are expected to split their time between the two states.

The country star's whirlwind romance with a cop may not surprise those who know her. Her father is a former homicide and narcotics officer with the Dallas Police Department in Texas. He and Lambert's mother also ran a private investigation business.

Meanwhile, Lambert's ex-husband, Blake Shelton, says he stopped thinking about his former wife a long time ago, according to People magazine. 

"He put Miranda in his rear view mirror long ago," the publication quoted a source as saying. "Their marriage ended and he moved on. Ever since, he is grateful every day."

Lambert announced Saturday that she had married McLoughlin last month in a secret ceremony.
