Miranda Lambert has a few musical obsessions these days , which she recently shared with CMT’s Cody Alan.  Miranda says she is loving RaeLynn, Little Big Town and pop singer Meghan Trainor, with whom she recently performed on the CMA Awards.

 

When it comes to RaeLynn, whom she and Blake have essentially adopted since she appeared on Team Blake on The Voice, Miranda says, “Her music is amazing.  She’s got a great personality. I believe in her.”

 

Miranda is obsessed with Little Big Town’s new album, Pain Killer.  She says, “Their new record is amazing.  They sent me the CD, and I haven’t taken it out of the CD player.”

 

Meghan Trainor and her smash hit, “All About That Bass” have become an obsession for not only Miranda, but her entire band.  Miranda reveals,  “We listen to it at least 150 times on the tour.  Right before we walk onstage, we crank it up. I’m not sick of it. And I mean literally, we turn it on and my whole band — all these dudes and these awesome crew guys dressed in black — are like, ‘I’m all about that bass.’ This is great! This song brings everyone together.”

 

Miranda has wrapped up her tour for the year and she’s looking forward to spending some time at home with her husband Blake Shelton, once he’s done taping The Voice in mid-December.

Congratulations to Miranda Lambert who raised over $66,000 for her MuttNation Foundation through an online auction featuring a customized Ram Laramie Longhorn truck.  The auction featured several items, but it was the truck that brought in a winning bid of $54,901.  Other items up for bids included signed copies of her “Platinum” CD, signed guitars and tickets to one of Miranda’s 2015 concerts, including a pre-show cocktail with her.

 

“I’m happy to see everyone  come together to raise so much money for MuttNation Foundation, which is so close to my heart,” said Miranda. “I appreciate Ram for donating the truck to me to auction off and for making this all possible. So many dogs will have happier holidays and lives thanks to this generosity.”

 

The auction was just the beginning of the relationship between Miranda and Ram Trucks, which will continue to grow in 2015.  Also, this weekend Miranda and the MuttNation Foundation will open their new five-acre, private, no-kill shelter facility in Tishimongo, Oklahoma, called Redemption Ranch.  The shelter will throw a celebration, complete with plenty of adoptable pets, plus s’mores, candy apples, wine tasting and more tomorrow.

For Darius Rucker, Thanksgiving is all about food and family.  “My favorite part of Thanksgiving is easy – it’s food,” says Darius.  “It’s eating. It’s hanging out with family and getting some great food.”

 

Darius also knows that Thanksgiving is a great time to really reflect and give thanks for all the blessings in his life and he says, “The main thing I’m thankful for is my family, there’s no doubt about that. Thanksgiving is about family for us. If we’re in Jersey, getting together with family. If we’re in Charleston, getting together with family and just cooking and eating. Sitting around and talking and remembering and being thankful for where we are, you know. We’re all still alive.”
