Good News for Miranda AND Blake
I hope the lovely couple are enjoying this time in their lives. Absolutely incredible things are happening for them and the pleasant news just keeps coming.
‘Four the Record’ is Miranda's first album since the critically acclaimed and Grammy award-winning album ‘Revolution.’ Each of Lambert’s last two albums have been honored with prestigious country music awards.
But, wait. There's more! Miranda also has what promises to be a successful collaboration with her all-female trio Pistol Annies. ‘Hell on Heels’ debuted as the No. 1 country album in the nation and has also received critical praise.
Now to recap what's going on with Mr. Shelton.
The already star-studded ‘Footloose’ movie soundtrack got a little more country when Blake was given the golden opportunity to record the the title track made famous by my boy Kenny Loggins. Just in case you forgot, here's and amazingly big-hair scene from the original.
Blake tells The Boot “When I open my mouth, what comes out is country,” he says. “It was going to sound country no matter what, but I didn’t want it to be too different. There are two ways to bring back a song: one is to try to make it your own, and in this instance, you have to remove yourself from it and step into the role of what’s best for the movie and that particular scene. There’s really only one way to approach it when you think of it that way: a fun, uptempo, catchy version just like Kenny Loggins did.”
So, whether you're dealing with emotional baggage by listening to "Baggage Claim", or risking life and limb by dancing at a party, you have only yourself, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton to blame. It is very, very good to be Mr. and Mrs. Shelton right now.
