For those of you who think country music isn’t for you, here are 13 reasons you need to stop what you’re doing and try it. From country vet Tim McGraw to newcomers like Sam Hunt, country music has some of the sexiest men on the planet who can rock the hell out of a cowboy hat, wear boots with the best of them and look damn good in a tight t-shirt. Oh, and they can sing. See which hot cowboys made our top 13 and prepare to be converted, my friends.
Gwen Stefani sang “Hella Good” on “The Voice” last night, and while it definitely wasn’t a full-on No Doubt reunion, Gwen totally rocked it. Instead of the rest of the band, Pharrell Williams, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton awkwardly stagebombed the whole thing. They don’t exactly give off the right level of badassery to match Gwen, but she carried the whole thing like the rockstar that she is, and the dudes get points for effort I guess. “Don’t Speak” next, please!
“People always try to pop off or call her bluff at bars. One of them, I don’t want to say the guy’s name, but he’s the lead singer of a very popular rock band. His initials are C.K.”
–Blake Shelton revealed in this week’s issue of Rolling Stone that his wife (and the mag’s cover girl!) Miranda Lambert once got in a bar fight with a certain rock star. Upon reading this and seeing the “C.K.” initials, my mind immediately went to Nickelback singer/Avril Lavigne soulmate Chad Kroeger, but I assumed that was just because I’m always thinking about Chad Kroeger. Plus, the thought of Miranda throwing down with Chad Kroeger at a bar seemed to good to be true. Right? Right? Turns out it’s totally true. Apparently the brawl went down at Miranda’s 27th birthday party, when drunk Chad was trying really hard to get the birthday girl to do a shot with him. When Miranda said no, Chad went into full-on douche mode and told her she didn’t need to be “a bitch” about it. Miranda, being Miranda, threw her drink in his face. New favorite celebrity anecdote? Check. One more reason to love Miranda? Double check. [EOnline]
The self-shot venison dinner, the cowboy boots for the bridesmaids, the wearing of her mom’s wedding dress, the fishing honeymoon—yes, we have been thoroughly obsessed with Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton’s sweet downhome wedding. But now a new detail has reeled me in even further. Apparently, Miranda and Blake were adamant about their dogs—chihuahua Cher, chihuahua-pug Delta, and terrier Delilah—being a big part of their nuptials. The three pups walked down the aisle with one of Miranda’s boot-clad bridesmaids. The doggies even got their own rhinestoned bandanas and collars for the occasion. “They were rock stars! Total rock stars, ” says Miranda’s publicist/wedding planner. “They were tiny little representatives, but they got a lot of laughs and attention. They were right in the big middle of everything … [Miranda] wanted a place where everybody would be comfortable, would have a great time, just feel at home and her dogs could be a part of it.”
This has me wondering—would you have your pets be a big part of your wedding? Keep reading »
Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton got married last weekend, and I am still thoroughly obsessed with their wedding. Not only did Miranda shoot her own venison for the reception dinner and do her final shopping at WalMart, but apparently, she also wore her mom’s wedding dress. So sweet. And rather than take a tropical honeymoon, this down-home couple decided to have a little staycation at their house in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. According to Miranda’s Twitter, they fished a lot. “Honeymoon bliss!!!” is the way she captioned this photo. “Mrs Shelton here! Winning!!!!!” So adorable. [PopEater] Keep reading »
Country stars Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, who you can currently see on “The Voice,” are getting hitched this weekend. And their tweets about their wedding preparations are kind of refreshing. “I am so excited,” Miranda wrote on Wednesday. “Got nails touched up. One last wal mart (sic) run and I should be good!” Then yesterday, she posted the above photo of a package of deer cutlets. “Last thing loaded for the wedding!!! Harvested by …. me!!!!!” she said.
Blake was apparently very proud. Keep reading »
