Miranda Lambert to Star in Feature Film

Miranda Lambert

Is country music superstar Miranda Lambert headed to the big screen? That’s the word on the street!

The film – called, “Something in the Water,” – is a female led comedy in which five women challenge their men to a bass fishing competition. And Miranda Lambert wouldn’t be the only country music tie to the film. The scripted was written by country music video director Trey Fanjoy and screenwriter Cindy McCreery.

Fanjoy, who has worked on several of Miranda’s music videos, describes the project as a cross between “Bridesmaids” and “Steel Magnolias,” and of course, it’s set in the good ole south.  There’s even talks of Miranda contributing to the soundtrack!

Miranda has had several television appearances over the years including NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “Project Runway,” but this new role would be her feature film debut!

Lucy Hale Reveals Details About 50 Shades of Grey Audition

Say what? Sweet little Lucy Hale auditioned for the 50 Shades of Grey? It’s true! The Pretty Little Liars alum and country newcomer read for the steamy role of Anastasia Steele in the upcoming film. But Lucy reveals to MTV it wasn’t exactly a good fit.

“I was like, ‘I don’t know guys, I have to go home to my grandparent’s house in a few months at Christmas, I don’t know if I can do this.'”

She also said the two page monologue she read for her audition was a bit “awkward” (you think!).

“It was like a two-page monologue of dialogue of exactly what you would think it would be. Very uncomfortable.”

Well there no uncomfortable roles in Lucy’s near future! The part eventually went to Dakota Johnson and Lucy went on to release her debut country album – no complaints here!

Do you think Lucy would have played a good Anastasia in 50 Shades of Grey?

Miranda Lambert to Open a Bed and Breakfast

miranda-lambert

Miranda Lambert is one of country music’s biggest stars – and biggest entrepreneurs! Not only does she have her own boutique, The Pink Pistol, and her own line of shoes, she now has her own bed and breakfast!

Miranda and husband Blake Shelton purchased the historic home, called Ladysmith, last spring and gave no indication on what they would do with the property. Coincidently, the eight bedroom home and conference center sits just across the street from The Pink Pistol. This had many thinking the two would open a bed and breakfast – and they were right!

It looks like Miranda has big plans for Ladysmith.  “It was built in 1901, so it’s been over a year of renovations.  It is a bed and breakfast but it’s also an events center, so you can rent it for weddings and showers and private parties and all kinds of stuff.”

Miranda is not giving an exact time for the Ladysmith to open it’s doors saying, “I’m not setting a date because I don’t want to set myself up for failure, but it’s really beautiful and I think it’s going to be so much fun for people.”

It’s a well known secret that my favorite part of any award show is the red carpet! The recent CMT Music Awards in Nashville was no exception. This award show, which I’ve attended twice, tends to be a bit more casual but still super glamourous. Take Danielle Bradbery’s red carpet look for example! This 17 year old up and coming superstar looks simple yet amazing! And the best part is, this outfit is easy – and affordable – to recreate!

*Note: I’m not rich by any stretch. My picks tend to be on the more affordable side and I try to pick websites where I would actually shop.

Top: Daisy Street $9

Skirt: Dolly Rocka $54

Shoes: Halogen “Katrina” Bootie  $99

Necklace: My Posh Shop  $45

Clutch: Daisy Street  $30
