OFFSTAGE: Shelton and Lambert Party With Kid Rock

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

Am I the only one who wasn’t in New York City this week? All kinds of country stars have been there doing the morning show media rounds, and they’ve been tweeting about it so we could all virtually follow along and wish we’d been there. And then has a picture of what Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton did on Monday (July 11) night after they had dinner with Chris Young (a dinner at which Shelton pre-ordered Young’s new Neon album right there at the table). They also went to Kid Rock’s intimate party at a penthouse at The Hotel on Rivington to fete his Men’s Journal cover and his Born Free album reaching platinum status. Allegedly, while they were there, Shelton and Lambert snuck out to a rooftop terrace, holding hands. Next up in N.Y.C. is Brad Paisley, who will perform on Good Morning America on Friday (July 15). Those lucky, lucky New Yorkers.
