OFFSTAGE: Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton: Sunburned and Seasick

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

After getting hitched Texas-style, with a big ol’ country wedding, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton finally took a dream honeymoon vacation to Mexico. And Shelton described the trip as one of too much of just about everything. “We got drunk, we ate too much, we got seasick one day, we got sunburned,” he told E! “We did everything you’re supposed to do in Mexico, including I drank the water and had diarrhea.” Shelton has never been one to mince words or clam up when talk turns to his personal life, so it’s no surprise he divulged the specific details of that trip. His theory sounds a little bit like if-you’ve-got-it-flaunt-it. Especially when it comes to Lambert. “I got Miranda Lambert. Hell yeah, I wanna talk about that,” he admits. He also talks about how he thinks his success came after years of hard work because, he says, “It’s like I survived so long that people finally said, ’Man, that guy just will not go away. Let’s give him some trophies.'”
