Miranda Lambert announces new Platinum Tour

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. 


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.

“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

Sometimes the best part of an award show isn't what's happening on stage. 

Like this awkward moment when Miranda Lambert tried to high-five George Strait after he won Entertainer of the Year at Sunday night's ACM Awards only to be left hanging. 

Yeah, we've all had those awkward moments. And no, I don't think George was ignoring Miranda like some sites have said, I think he was just in the zone and not really paying attention.

In other Miranda Lambert news, the singer has released the tracklisting for her new album Platinum (out June 3).

Miranda Lambert talks about new song featuring Carrie Underwood

When Miranda Lambert announced details of her new album "Platinum" yesterday and revealed that she had a collaboration with Carrie Underwood, fans naturally wanted to know more.

During a new interview on Yahoo, the singer tells how the duet with Carrie came to be.

"Singing with Carrie Underwood is very, very intimidating – I mean, I'll be honest. She is an amazing vocalist, I'm a big fan of hers, and asking her to do this was nerve-wracking.

I sent her an email … a long, blabbing email about if she wanted to sing on the record, it could be cool, but maybe she didn't want to, and if she liked the song, but she didn't have to like the song … when I sent it I thought this sounds ridiculous."

Ridiculous or not, I'm pretty sure the song, which is called Something Bad, is going to be more like something completely awesome!

"Platinum" hits stores June 3.
