OFFSTAGE: Miranda Lambert Eyes Royals’ Wow Factor

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

All brides, even celebrity brides, obsess about weddings leading up to their own. So of course Miranda Lambert is no different. She got up last Friday (April 29) morning to watch Prince William officially become the honey bee to his honeysuckle Kate Middleton. And Lambert told CMT Radio that she wants her wedding to be kind of the same. “Ours is so different, obviously. But, I think it was gorgeous,” she said of the royal nuptials. “Just the wow factor of the royal wedding was, you know, every bride wants a wow factor and even though ours won’t be in a palace or with 1,500 guests, I still hope that it has that same wow factor.” She may be counting on country singer Neal McCoy to bring the wow, as he’s been confirmed as the entertainment for the reception at her May 14 marriage to Blake Shelton.
