OFFSTAGE: Miranda Lambert’s Ready to Wed

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Miranda Lambert is getting married. Very soon, too. And everybody who listens to country music now knows that. Maybe that’s because she is marrying Blake Shelton, someone who’s as famous as she is. She told CMT, “I’m looking forward to getting married and just doing it, ya know? … We’ve been engaged six months now already and it’s kind of flown by, but just taking that next step and kind of becoming a woman and moving on in life.” But if she wasn’t going to exchange vows with the reigning CMA male vocalist of the year, would she be as open about it? Hard to say for sure. Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott told Nashville radio station WSIX that when her time comes, she won’t talk about wedding details because marriage and weddings are very personal and she plans to keep those details private. Scott’s boyfriend is Chris Tyrrell, a Nashville-based drummer.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
