OFFSTAGE: Miranda Lambert Adds an “S”

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

When Miranda Lambert starts initialing things with “MLS,” that kind of makes it really real, doesn’t it? When you marry Blake Shelton, of course you would take his last name, maybe use it on occasion or add it to your own. And that’s how she signed her last blog on her website.

First she talks all about her busy summer because she’s been doing a lot with Ang and Ash (her cohorts in the Pistol Annies), and she’s been out on the road doing her own thing and signing her newest single, “Baggage Claim.” She promises, “It’s fun to sing live and the video is just around the corner.”

Then she hints at taking her pet charity Mutt Nation nationwide and reminds fans, “Don’t forget, Love a shelter pet!” Lambert ends the update by saying, “As far as being Mrs. Shelton, I am loving it!” Then she signs off with “Love, MLS.”

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