OFFSTAGE: Miranda Lambert Wishes She Had Carrie Underwood’s Legs

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

That was only one revelation in Us Weekly — that Miranda Lambert is pining for those long legs of Carrie Underwood. (And really, who isn’t?) But from the looks of the list of the “25 Things You Didn’t Know About Me,” there are plenty of things Lambert loves about herself and things she should be really proud of. Like the fact that she was the shortstop on her Little League team. She played Annie Oakley in a high school play. And she’s learning to barrel race. But then there are some admissions that show she’s not totally perfect. She does not know how to make gravy or play poker, for instance. She doesn’t like her profile. She once tried to talk some sense into her cat. And she doesn’t like swimming in the ocean. But the best one on the list, I think, was that she revealed that in sixth grade she was voted most likely to be a country singer. And look how well that turned out.

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