It wasn’t the Seychelles, but it sure was nice!
Shortly after getting hitched in Texas May 14, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert stole away for a few days for a super top-secret honeymoon. Where did the superstar country couple get their romantic R&R?
The vacation digs of pal Reba McEntire outside of Cancun, Mexico, their reps confirm exclusively to Us Weekly. (Shelton, 35, and McEntire, 56, recently co-hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards, and share the same manager.)
As first reported by Us, Shelton wed Lambert, 27 at the Don Strange Ranch before a crowd of 550 loved ones, including McEntire, Kelly Clarkson, Martina McBride, Dierks Bentley and the Bellamy Brothers.
The couple exchanged their vows on a cowhide rug beneath an arch made of antlers in lantern-lit barn. Lambert wore her mom’s wedding dress, accessorized by custom Casadei cowboy boots, while Shelton donned an Ermengeildo Zegna suit and Lucchese boots.
Before jetting off to McEntire’s Mexican estate, the quirky duo escaped for a more rustic kind of mini-honeymoon: their Tishomongo, Oklahoma spread. Three days after the wedding, Lambert proudly posted a TwitPic from that trip: Wearing overalls, bikini top and cap, she held up a huge fish, presumably caught in the lake behind her.
The girls posted this lovely message on their Twitter today!

They haven’t even officially released their first single, but Miranda Lambert’s new band, Pistol Annies, are already in high-demand for more music! The all-female trio, comprised of Miranda and fellow songwriters Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, debuted a new tune, ‘Better Days,’ in front of Miranda’s hometown crowd during her Cause for the Paws event. (Watch a fan’s video of the performance above.)
On writing ‘Better Days,’ Angaleena quips, “I thought of the idea for this song when I was literally laying under my car on the side of the road … tying up my muffler with a guitar string. True story!”
The trio debuted their first single, ‘Hell on Heels,’ during the ACM Girls’ Night Out concert special in April. It’s expected to be officially released to radio later this month, with their full-length album due later this year.
“I figured if I get tired of singing by myself, I might as well have some hot women up here on stage with me!” Miranda explains.
Fans can “like” Pistol Annies on their official Facebook page to get up-to-date information on the dynamic new trio.
When Miranda Lambert last played Atlantic City in 2008, she was one of country music’s rising stars, bringing a boatload of attitude and southern rock charged excitement to the Nashville scene.
Many critics at the time reasoned that Nashville didn’t quite know what to do with her.
Well, as she returns three years later, playing at The Borgata Event Center Friday June 10 (tickets are $65 and $85. theborgata.com) , they’ve figured it out.
They decided to just love her. Lambert comes back to town as a bonafied superstar.
Her 2009 album Revolution produced five hit singles and two number ones — “The House That Built Me” and “Heart Like Mine.” She’s also won a trophy case of Grammys and country music awards since last playing in the resort.
In the meantime, her personal life has gone just as well. Last month she married fellow country artist Blake Shelton, in a true country ceremony.
It was hard to find a celebrity gossip magazine in the last few weeks that didn’t have a shot of Lambert in her wedding dress or holding up the seven-pound bass she caught on her honeymoon. Like we said, it was a country wedding.
As Lambert brings her Revolution Tour to The Borgata, she took some time to answer five questions by e-mail. Actually it was six, but then you always get more than you expect from Lambert.
Thanks to our friend Nikie over at Blake-Shelton.Org and Oklahoma-Girl (Reba) for sending us some older screencaptures of Miranda from 2009 when she was featured on the GAC special Backstory featuring her husband Blake! Miranda looks gorgeous as always!
