Miranda Lambert and Brendan McLoughlin

Miranda Lambert and her husband Brendan McLoughlin are turning heads with their latest Instagram post.

The series of photos and videos showcase the couple on their Nashville-area farm loading hay bales onto a trailer. Lambert is all smiles as a shirtless McLoughlin effortlessly loads up the trailer while showing off his toned physique.

“Make hay while the sun shines y’all,” the “Bluebird” singer wrote. She also hashtagged #ShirtlessFarmHusband.

Fans and artists flooded to Lambert’s post, declaring the couple “goals.”

Singer/songwriter Alyssa Micaela wrote, ‘Y’all are GOALS,” while others couldn’t get past McLoughlin’s muscular build.

“Wow I can watch that dude throw hay bales all dayyyyy,” one fan commented. Lambert replied, “me too girl, me too.”

Someone else caught the superstar’s attention with a comment suggesting they should soon expand their family. “Make hay & then hopefully soon make a _ _ _ _!! 😉😘,” she wrote. Lambert was quick to comment, slyly writing, “Bale?😂😂😂”

Lambert and McLoughlin have been enjoying their time at home together this year. With Lambert’s tour schedule scrapped due to the on-going pandemic, they have made the most of their downtime together and Lambert says she thinks they can survive anything after this year.

“We’re pretty much newlyweds since we’ve only been married a year and a half, but we’ve already survived a pandemic so I think we’re golden,” she recently told Taste of Country Nights.

She went on to share that she’s learned a lot about former NYPD-hubby during the time they’ve been at home together.

“He loves to clean, and I knew that but it has really come in handy,” Lambert said. “The whole routine: make a meal, clean it up, make a meal, clean it up. We’ve had fun.”

The couple said “I do” on January 26, 2019 and have been inseparable ever since.
