Miranda Lambert crystal light

Hey, hey, hey, looks like Crystal Light finally got smart. 

For years now, Miranda Lambert has been promoting Crystal Light via her favorite drink, the Mirandarita (White rum, sugar-free pink lemonade or raspberry Crystal Light mix, diet lemon-lime soda, water, ice). 

I mean the girl has been selling it big time. If you Google Mirandarita there are no less than 18,800 entries. 

18,800! 

I even mentioned clear back in 2012 that Crystal Light should put Miranda on the payroll

Now they finally have. Well sort of. 

Today, Miranda announced her new Platinum Tour sponsored by Crystal Light that will hit the road this summer. 

We've all been there … Miranda Lambert left hanging by George Strait

“Platinum represents a lifestyle for me,” Miranda said. “It’s the color of my hair, my wedding ring, my airstream trailer, so it’s just a natural fit for the name of my new album and it’s why we decided to name the tour Platinum too,” said Miranda.

Her upcoming album, also called Platinum, will be released June 3. Fans can pre-order the album now from iTunes and Amazon

‘Nashville’, Season 2, Episode 21 – RECAP

Nashville-Season-2-Episode-21-Recap-and-Review-All-Or-Nothing-With-Me

With the Nashville season 2 finale airing tomorrow night, and fans in high spirits after the renewal announcement (with a full 22 episodes!), it’s about time we muse on this rather sweet penultimate episode that aired last week.

Rayna begins the episode by having a conference meeting with radio promoters, as her album release is coming up. She’s cut short, however, when Bucky informs her that when out on a tour of Afghanistan to perform for the troops, Luke has been injured and rushed back home to the hospital. Rayna flies to New York City to see him, and luckily he’s not seriously injured, although the make-up people did a pretty good job of making his face look weirdly cut and swollen. You made Luke a creepy invalid, well done guys! He’s gutted that he never got to perform for the troops, so Rayna suggests they go to Fort Campbell just outside of Nashville and they can all perform. Following a few arguments where he’s been pissy, she asks him why he’s pushing her away, and he admits that when the bomb went off, all he thought about was her and his kids, and he loves her far more than he believes she loves him. However, Rayna tells him she’s all in, but to complete the episode she performs ‘A Life That’s Good’ with her daughters, with Maddie persuading her to invite Deacon out as well.
