13) Brendan has a favorite Miranda Lambert song— “How Dare You Love.”
“He requests it all the time, and I never do it,” the star shared during her 2020 CRS panel, adding, “He’s actually a really good person to bounce things off because he loves mainstream music of all kinds. He really cares about music, but doesn’t have the business part of it, which is nice sometimes. But he loves this song, so I figure, hopefully, other people do.”
14) In February 2020, Brendan officially retired from police work. He now helps out with security during Miranda’s tour meet and greets.
15) In June, Brendan spotted a stray kitten on a two lane highway in Texas and pulled over to rescue it. The pair named the little guy “Tequila” and brought him home with them!

Two lane highway in Texas, speed limit 70. Brendan slows down and does a U-turn… Me to B: “why are you turning around? “ B to me: “there’s a kitten in the road and I knew you would kill me if I saw it and didn’t stop.” Well I guess the rescue ways are rubbing off on him. 👏👏We stopped at mom and dads on the way home. Dad has a new bestie. This kitten rode 9 hours back to Nashville with us and 3 dogs and was such a champ. He is 4-5 weeks old and weighs 14 Ounces. 💙😻. Y’all welcome Tequila the kitten to the family! #tequiladoes @muttnation
