Miranda Lambert Says Blake Shelton Is a Little Jealous of Her New Baby
Lambert has opened her own boutique store, the Pink Pistol, in Tishomingo, Okla. on Black Friday, and despite initial encouragement from her husband, Lambert is beginning to question the validity of Shelton's support for what he refers to as her "big pink baby."
“I think he regrets encouraging me to open it now because he never sees me,” Lambert shares with a laugh (quote via Hays Post). "But when we’re home, Blake’s in the woods and he loves huntin’ and being in the woods and now I’ve just really found something that sort of gives me a new energy and that really occupies my time when I’m not on the road.”
The store, which opened on Nov. 23, is what Lambert refers to as a distraction from the demands of her superstar singing career. “My hobby happens to be singing and songwriting, which is also my job. So, I needed a little bit more distraction," shares the reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year.
Aside from the support of her devoted husband, Lambert also relies on her team to ensure that the store is a success, even when she is unable to physically be around. “I feel sorry for the people around me, because they’re having to execute them. But, you know, that’s what they do," she explains.
Quality 'distraction' time will likely be few and far between leading into the new year, with Lambert set to launch her Locked & Reloaded Tour with Dierks Bentley in early 2013. The two superstars will kick off the highly-anticipated music outing on Jan. 17 in Columbia, S.C.
