ON TOUR: While she played a few shows in her home state of Texas not long ago, Miranda Lambert has not been “on tour” for a while now, due to the quarantine and shutdown, so when asked about getting back out in front of fans, she replied, “I’m definitely ready to get back on the road.” And this past weekend it happened. Miranda kicked off her 2021 show dates in Belmont, Ohio. Miranda is back out again this upcoming weekend with stops in Indiana and Michigan, where she’ll be playing her Top 10 (and climbing) hit “Settling Down.”
SURPRISE REHEARSALS: Blake Shelton recently surprised fans by holding a couple of rehearsals at his Ole Red’s in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. After the first appearance Blake shared, “That was a blast yesterday!!! Let’s do it again today at Ole Red Tishomingo’s The Doghouse!!!” Blake added “Come on out and get yourself a drink if you’re bored. I repeat it’s only a rehearsal … It may not be good but at least it’s free!” Blake’s wife Gwen Stefani was also there, and joined in on performing a few of their duets. Blake will kick off his rescheduled Friends and Heroes 2021 tour in just a few weeks in Omaha — the very town where he was forced to cancel all his shows last year due to COVID-19.
