OFFSTAGE: What’s in Miranda Lambert’s Cup?

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

I would so rather have a meal in Oklahoma with Miranda Lambert than share any of her go-to snacks on tour. In this month’s WebMd magazine , she revealed what she is supposed to eat (ketchup, string cheese, unsweetened tea, milk and her signature cocktail, the Randarita), and what she loves to eat when she’s back home in Oklahoma (chicken-fried steak, a cheeseburger and fries, a Dairy Queen Blizzard).

Her personal trainer Bill Crutchfield also told the magazine he likes to make Lambert homemade juices with beets and/or greens. Then there is the Cheetos issue. Crutchfield explains that since Cheetos are Lambert’s weakness, he tells her to put some in a cup for herself and walk away from the bag.

“Having a cup of Cheetos helps her psychologically. Then she won’t ask for it for another two weeks. If I’d told her she couldn’t have any, she probably would have taken the bag on to the bus and eaten the whole thing,” he said. Oh, that Bill Crutchfield. He knows us Cheetos-lovers so well.

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