It’s Tough For Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert To Go Unnoticed
Two of the hottest artists in country music these days are the husband and wife couple of Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. While Miranda’s career has skyrocketed, she says that with Blake as one of the star coaches on the hit series “The Voice,” his visibility from the show has made it tough for them to go out unnoticed, even among people who aren’t necessarily country music fans.
“I understand now why sometimes people that get largely famous and… sort of become a little bit weird,” Miranda admits. “It’s not because…you get trapped in your own world, just a little bit, and I’m lucky I’m in country, so it’s not as bad, but some of these big stars, you can’t walk down the street. You can’t. And I’ve learned that with even Blake, with the last time we were in New York City. We couldn’t even walk five feet, and that’s New York City, and that’s not a country mecca. Now that he’s this big network television star, things have changed, and we are exactly the same people we always were. We are, like, so down to earth and do not care about ‘the scene’ or havin’ this certain famous image, but then there’s this part that you are a star and that’s how people perceive you, so you have to always carry yourself that way.”
Miranda will soon become a star of “The Voice” as well. She’ll be an advisor to “Team Blake” during the “battle rounds” phase of the competition this season. “The Voice” airs Mondays on NBC at 8pm ET.
