Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton Building New House, Taking It Easy
As a Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter, one might think Miranda Lambert lives a life of luxury, but you can’t take the country out of the girl. Lambert appears on Country Living's June 2015 cover, and inside the magazine spills her plans for the summer and the new endeavor she’s undertaken with husband Blake Shelton.
The two superstars live in the country in Oklahoma and are busy planning details for the new house they are building — but not just for themselves.
"I’ve been saving inspiration on Pinterest. A friend of mine recently said, ‘I can see your Pinterest boards, and all you have on there are dog rooms.’ My husband and I have 15 rescue animals, and I spend way too much time planning our pets’ spaces,” Lambert explains.
In the meantime, Lambert says she plans on spending her summer getting in touch with her agricultural side. “My dad taught me to live off the land. I now have my own garden, but Blake is really the gardener," she shares. "This year, we’re planting tomatoes and strawberries to make jam."
A laid-back summer indeed, especially compared to life on the road. But don't be fooled — though Lambert now has top-selling albums and Pinterest boards, she has never been one for fancy or picture-perfect.
“Growing up, my house was basically condemned when we got it, but my mother was determined to make it awesome,” "The House That Built Me" singer recalls. "It had mismatched carpet, and the halls were creaky. But those little things that were imperfect were what made it perfect. It’s funny, because I had friends with really nice houses — with pools! — and they always wanted to come to our house. I think our home just had love.”
Lambert also acted as guest editor for the new issue of Country Living, out May 19. After a break for some jam, both the singer and Shelton will make an appearance to perform at WE Fest 2015.
