Miranda Lambert’s love of animals is well-known, especially her passion for rescuing dogs. She recently shared her emotional story of helping a pet shelter in Tishomingo, Okla. where she lives with husband Blake Shelton. The yellow lab her parents had when she was born started it all.

“He slept under my crib and I think he was the one who started my love of dogs,” she said. “I feel like they love you for you, you know. That’s why I have six.”

Miranda Lambert kicked off her Platinum Tour earlier this month, and she’s bringing Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett along with her. Both Moore and Rhett are looking forward to touring with Lambert. Moore even rearranged his summer plans to go on the tour.

“She asked us out, and we weren’t really looking for another tour to do, especially since we’ve kinda got our own thing going now,” he said. “But, not unlike Randy [Houser] and Josh [Thompson] and me going out together, it’s really fun to go out and tour with people who you’re actually friends with. The fact that she’s on my album, plus we’re such good friends, I thought it’d be a fun change of pace for us.” Continue Reading

Miranda Lambert’s resumé keeps on growing. In addition to being a country music superstar, she also runs The Pink Pistol, a gift and novelty store with locations in Texas and Oklahoma, and recently launched her own line of shoes at DSW. Now, she is opening a bed and breakfast called Ladysmith, located across from her Pink Pistol store in Tishomingo, Okla.

“I bought the building across the street from the Pink Pistol in Tishomingo,” Miranda said. “It was built in 1901, so it’s been over a year of renovations. It is a bed and breakfast but it’s also an events center, so you can rent it for weddings and showers and private parties and all kinds of stuff. But it does have eight rooms.” Continue Reading
