Miranda Lambert is Definitely Not Ready to Move on from Her ACM Album of the Year, Platinum

Miranda Lambert picked up her fourth Album of the Year trophy at Sunday night’s 50th ACM Awards for Platinum, and although she’s released three singles off the album, she’s not ready to move on just yet.  She says, “I definitely am still riding out Platinum. I’m not even close to being tired of it yet, and I feel like it’s brand new, even though it’s been out a year.”


While she’s not ready to head into the studio to start working on a new album, Miranda has been doing some songwriting.  She says, “I guess I’m inspired ‘cause of everything that’s goin’ on in country music right now and winning song with Natalie and Nicole. It’s three female songwriters, and artists in their own right, and that makes me really excited for the future of females of Country music.”


For now Miranda plans to spend the summer out on the road on her Certified Platinum Tour, promoting her latest single, “Little Red Wagon,” and probably releasing at least one more single off Platinum after that.

Kellie Pickler and Thomas Rhett faced off over the weekend as team captains in the Cracker Barrel Country Checkers Challenge.  They each had a celebrity-filled team, including Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney), Danielle Bradbery, Scotty McCreery, and Cassadee Pope on Team Rhett and Lauren Alaina, Chase Bryant, Kristian Bush, Love & Theft (Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson) and Jamie Lynn Spears on Team Pickler, who acted as human chess pieces on an over-sized checker board.


When it was all said and done, Team Pickler managed to wipe Team Rhett off the checkerboard, but the real winners were the two charities who benefitted from the event – the USO who received $25,000 for Kellie’s win and DAV who received $10,000 for Thomas’ participation.


“This event was not about us, it was about our servicemen and servicewomen and our veterans.  It’s not just their sacrifices, but the sacrifices their families make, too, every day,” said Kellie.  “A fun event like this reminds us that there are so many things to be thankful for.  I’m grateful for companies like Cracker Barrel, the ACM, and Lifting Lives for shining a light on the USO and DAV.”

The Band Perry joined the social networking app Snapchat over the weekend.  Neil Perry says, “I’m kind of addicted to the social media thing, but Snapchat is new and I’m still figuring it out.  We have a guy who helps us with all that and he’s giving me the whole tour.”


Kimberly has been trying to figure out exactly what kind of stuff you post on Snapchat, and she’s finding out that it can be any kind of behind-the-scenes moment.  For instance, she says, “I was doing this thing where my hair was flat earlier, so I did the thing where you throw it over and you just get the texturized spray and you spray it and then you flip it back, and they were like, ‘Well that’s like a good Snapchat moment.”
