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

Tim McGraw is back with new music (that Jason pretty much hates) in the form of his new single Lookin' For That Girl, and the newly announced Sundown Heaven Town 2014 Tour.

Is it just me or is that like THE hardest tour name ever to try and remember? I can already imagine myself calling it the Sundowners Tour or the Sunny Heaven Tour or other variations of the name. 

Ugh.
