(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)
Miranda Lambert admits — as does her husband Blake Shelton — that she is pretty obsessed with the reality show Say Yes to the Dress. And now, Lambert actually had a chance to be a shopper instead of just a spectator . Her pal and Pistol Annies bandmate Angaleena Presley is the bride, shopping for a dress to tie the knot with Lambert’s tour manager Jordan Powell. (The newlyweds eloped in May, but this episode was taped before that inside Bridals by Lori in Atlanta .) When Presley talks about how touring with the Annies is like a total dress-up slumber party every night, Lambert concurs. And says, “I don’t think she would feel right — neither would we — if we weren’t here to see her pick out her wedding dress.” Presley adds that there’s no way she’d do this without Lambert and the other Annie, Ashley Monroe. “I’m eloping, so this is the way to feel like a bride and do bride stuff.” Mark your calendars and set your DVRs. The show airs on Aug. 24 on TLC.
