She gushed: “I think it was really good. I mean, we didn’t date very long before we got married. And so we sort of got to just really, really, really get to know each other [during quarantine].

“Because it was just us two with no distraction, at my farm outside of Nashville. And so I was really thankful for it because it made us really strong. And, you know, I think it did that for a lot of couples, especially a lot of my friends don’t really see their significant other because we’re different directions all the time.
“But with everything that happened last year, I think everybody was forced to sort of reconnect with themselves and with people that they really love and that are close to them.”
Miranda – who was previously married to Blake Shelton from 2011 until 2015 – enlisted the help of her husband for the music video to her track ‘Settling Down’, and revealed the guest appearance was the first time she’s ever had a real-life love interest in one of her videos.
Speaking on SiriusXM’s ‘The Storme Warren Show’, she said: “We shot it at my farm and I’ve never had a love interest in a video my entire career.
“And so I figured, ‘Why not my husband who happens to be hot, here, and free?’ He did great. He loved it. He was a champ and I got to ride my real horse Gibson and in a cape, I’m like, what kind of princess bride fairy tale is this? It’s awesome.”
