SHERMAN, TX — A few days after the Royal Wedding had millions across the globe glued to their TVs, one of country music’s royal couples was in Texoma, Monday!
Country music super stars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were in Grayson County Monday.
A photo posted around 11:00 a.m. on Blake’s Twitter page confirms the couple stopped at the Grayson County Courthouse Monday to pick up a Texas marriage certificate.
Shelton is an Ada native and owns property in Tishomingo. Lambert is from East Texas.
The couple is set to wed on Saturday — As for the location? All they’re saying is somewhere in Texas.

You’ve got to have some serious cojones to sing Miranda Lambert songs while her fiance, Blake Shelton, is sitting in his big turny-chair judging you. After all, he’s got to have a pretty high opinion of the original.
Two contestants on “The Voice” risked their careers with this gutsy move on Tuesday night’s episode. The first contestant, Cherie Oakley, sang “Gunpowder & Lead,” Lambert’s 2008 hit. While Blake didn’t turn around, Christina Aguilera did.
“I’m sitting there listening to you sing my fiancees song,” Blake said when she’d finished singing. “That’s really cool. But by the same token, you’re stepping into some big shoes for me because i know how she sings that, and I wanted you to beat her. I did! I wanted you to beat her and I didn’t think you did.”
Aguilera felt she had a catch, though, and Cee-Lo was impressed by “such a big voice coming out of a little bitty cute little thing.”
The next contestant, Angela Wolff, sang a more recent Lambert song, “The House that Built Me,” but she was noticeably pitchy in places. She threatened to unfollow Blake on Twitter, but he still wasn’t impressed enough to choose her — though he couldn’t help but smile during her song. Unfortunately, she wasn’t chosen.
Wolff no longer follows Shelton on Twitter. She does, however, follow Cee-Lo, Adam Levine, and yes — Miranda Lambert.
Yesterday, another video of the Pistol Annies behind the scenes was posted on their Youtube Channel. This video is a little longer and we get a little preview of what I hope is another song at the end!
When is the album coming out already???
When most artists reach the level that Miranda Lambert has achieved in the past year, they don’t take the risk of starting a brand new all-girl band. However, Miranda’s never been typical, and therefore becoming a founding member of the Pistol Annies, along with Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, shouldn’t be too much of a surprise.
“For now it’s just a fun outlet for me and my friends to have some fun,” she tells the Abilene Reporter-News. “We will let the fans decide if they want to hear/see more.”
The group, which made their public debut during the ACM ‘Girls Night Out’ special, is a dream come true for the multi-tasking singer-songwriter. “We’ve been writing songs like crazy, and I always wanted to do a girl project,” Miranda explains. “It’s not your typical girl trio. We definitely have an edge. [laughs] We sing a lot about housewives.”
The soon to be wed and nine time Academy of Country Music Award winner Miranda Lambert has added one more project to her already busy schedule — a new band.
The band, dubbed the Pistol Annies, already has almost 16,000 “likes” on their Facebook page and they are gearing up to be an extremely successful edition to the world of country music.
The trio premiered their debut song, “Hell on Heels” last week on the CBS special, “ACM Girls Night Out: Superstar Women of Country.”
Lambert was among the musicians who were honored as strong musical performers by the Academy of Country Music.
The other two members of the Pistol Annies — Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley – are both small town natives with big voices and the southern attitude found in the best country artists.
Monroe first met Lambert at 17, while each singer was simultaneously trying to carve a place for themselves in the world of country music. Their publishers introduced Monroe and Presley and the two instantly meshed.
After knowing and working personally with Lambert for a couple of years, Monroe approached Lambert with Presley’s demo album. Lambert heard the raw talent of Presley’s voice and immediately suggested the three create their own band.
