OFFSTAGE: Miranda Lambert Gets All Martha Stewart for the Holidays

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

Kerosene, schmerosene. Miranda Lambert is not all about gunpowder and lead and lighting cheating boyfriends’ beds on fire. There’s a girly side in there somewhere. Especially now, around the holidays, when she’s home with family and friends. She told CMT Radio she gets very domestic over Christmas. “I love to bake cookies and cook dinner for the whole family, and I have every decoration you can think of. I like to have a tree in every room, and I mean, that’s my time to just get ultra-girly, and I love holidays,” she admitted. It sounds like this is the one time of year she’s a real Martha Stewart. And since she’s done with her tour and is hopefully basking in the glow of her recent CMA wins, this is her time off. “There’s not really a lot going on during holidays, and so I really get to spend time with people I really care about.”

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