Title: Miranda Lambert & Blake Shelton Engagement Party
Location: Front Porch Farms
Miranda has been a client of FrontPage Publicity for several years. I’ve had the pleasure of being her publicist and promoting her music from the very first Sony CD and I am so proud of all that she has accomplished. When Miranda called to say Blake proposed, I was so over-the-top excited for them. Brian & I threw them a Front Porch Farms engagement party and it was so much fun! 920311814 blake miranda kristyn hogan 009 150×150 Miranda Lambert & Blake Shelton Engagement Party
It was a who’s who of country music singers but even more fun than that was finally having the time to have Miranda, her manager and her parents out to the house. They have been around to hear about all the ups (our wedding) & downs (the tornado) of our own “House That Built Me” so it was a special time.
Caprice & her team at Enchanted Florist worked her magic with the flowers and helped me with our unique vintage & shabby chic displays (only she can show me how to love deer antlers on a table top)
and Shannon at Chef’s Market did an amazing job creating a menu that perfectly represented the couple’s favorite foods.
Blake & Tom at Nashville Event Lighting worked hours to turn the tent, house, pool and grounds into a romantic and rustic “picnic” style event (loved the twine balls!).
Tree Paine, Blake’s publicist had custom cowhide coozies as party favors and we did special all-access keepsake laminates.
Bacardi was happy to help with the party and supply the couple & guests with 3 signature drinks including the Mirandarita & Blakarita (Rum & diet sprite) which is their drink of choice. Det Distributing also contributed to the engagement festivities.

It wasn’t a late night as many had gigs the next day but it wrapped with some interesting interpretations of each other’s material as the pros put their pals on the spot to Karaoke compliments of Blair at Nashville Party Authority.

More details surrounding Blake Shelton’s upcoming ‘six pak’ album have been released. The six-song collection will be named after the Oklahoma native’s fastest rising single to date, ‘All About Tonight,’ with the other five tunes including a special collaboration with Blake’s fiancé, Miranda Lambert. The ‘All About Tonight’ six pak, which was produced by Scott Hendricks (Trace Adkins, Brooks & Dunn), arrives in stores August 10.
Blake released the first six pak album, ‘Hillbilly Bone,’ in March, and it debuted at No. 2 on the country album chart and No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200. He felt the project did everything he and his record label wanted it to do, but he still has one regret, which will be rectified this time around. “If I could go back to that first six pak, the only thing I would’ve done differently is I would’ve released a second single off of it,” he says. “So, when I say ‘All About Tonight’ is the first single off the second six pak, there’s going to be a second single this time. We’ve cut a bunch [of songs]. And that’s what I love about doing six paks is how often you get in there and record and how you’re constantly being sent brand new music from the best writers in Nashville.”
The other songs on the album are ‘Who Are You When I’m Not Looking,’ ‘That Thing We Do,’ ‘Got a Little Country,’ ‘Draggin’ the River’ (a duet with Miranda) and ‘Suffocating,’ which was co-written by his soon-to-be-wife and Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott.
Miranda performed at the Lilith Fair last night (June 5). So far I’ve only added 6 photos to the gallery. Click the thumbnails below to view images!
Country music superstar duo Brooks & Dunn have added 3 dates to their critically acclaimed The Last Rodeo Tour. New tour stops include Oklahoma City, OK on August 20th, Little Rock, AR on August 21st and Holmdel, NJ on August 28th (complete list of ticket on-sale dates and tour stops listed below). In addition, country music legend Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert and Sara Evans have been announced to appear on selected tour dates.
The Last Rodeo Tour was postponed on the recommendation of doctors for Ronnie Dunn to go on immediate vocal rest. Of the restart and new dates Dunn emailed “Getting better every day. Kix and I will be raring to start where we left off ….and go for 3 additional dates to say thanks to all the fans for 20 years of showing us the love!”
A member of The Country Music Hall of Fame, Merle Haggard is one of the great living legends and a hero of Brooks & Dunn. Haggard will take the stage singing his classics, as well as songs from his latest release “I Am What I Am”.
2010 Academy of Country Music’s Female Vocalist of the Year, Miranda Lambert will join on select dates. Lambert’s hit song “The House That Built Me” spent 4 weeks at #1 on the country music charts this Summer.
CMA and ACM winner Sara Evans is one of the preeminent voices in country music today. Her new single “Stronger” hits the airwaves later this year.

Miranda Lambert has released “Only Prettier” as the next single from her album, Revolution. The single was sent to country radio on Monday (June 21). She recently filmed the video in Joelton, Tenn., with guests Kellie Pickler, Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum and Laura Bell Bundy. The video features the artists dressed up as rival “socials” and “greasers” at a high school sock hop. “To me, ‘Only Prettier’ is an anthem,” Lambert said. “It’s my own anthem, and I want girls to have their fists in the air singing ‘Only Prettier.’ It’s antagonistic, in a fun way, and I loved the attitude behind it. It kind of fools you, because it’s got this really country, laid-back intro, but then it’s balls to the wall the rest of the way.”
