I’m sure Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert love Christmas. No arguments there. But the music? He seems to be all for it, and she is not so into it.
“Blake burns me up on Christmas albums. He plays Christmas music all year long,” Lambert said of her husband in a recent radio interview. “So by the time Christmas actually gets there, I’m sick to death of Christmas music,” she laughed.
And she also said she has absolutely no plans to record a Christmas album anytime soon.
“I do not want to do a Christmas album,” Lambert said.
Shelton’s Cheers, It’s Christmas album does feature a duet with Lambert on “Jingle Bell Rock” and another with her Pistol Annies trio on “Blue Christmas,” but that may be all we get from her for the holidays. That record was Shelton’s seventh album, but his first Christmas one. And Shelton is so into Christmas, he had his own holiday TV special last year — Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas — and this year, he made an appearance on Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale.
Plus, it sounds like Lambert is too busy cooking, decorating and getting in touch with her not-so-gunpowder-and-lead side to take part in holiday music, anyway.
“I get really domestic during holidays,” she said. “And it’s kind of weird because it’s so opposite of who I am onstage, but I love to bake cookies and cook dinner for the whole family. And I have every decoration you can think of, and I like to have a tree in every room. I mean, that’s my time to just get ultra girly.”

Singer MIRANDA LAMBERT will be going head-to-head with her husband BLAKE SHELTON on his talent show THE VOICE next year after signing on to serve as a mentor for his rival judge SHAKIRA.
The House That Built Me hitmaker recently headed to the Los Angeles set of the reality program to shoot episodes for season six – but it wasn’t Shelton the competitive star chose to lend her expertise to.
A source tells Us Weekly magazine, “Shakira and Miranda got along well. Blake joked that Miranda was helping another coach. But it was in good fun.”
Shakira and R&B hunk Usher served as replacements for Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green during season four, when the original judges decided to take a break from the show, and the newcomers will return for another run in 2014.
Guest mentors for the current fifth season of The Voice are Ryan Tedder, Miguel, Ed Sheeran and superstar Cher.
On (Novemebr 22) Miranda and husband Blake Shelton attended and performed These Days (I Barely Get By) at a tribute concert to the late George Jones. I have added 21 HQ photos to the gallery thanks to Lea. Be sure to check them out!

Keith Urban tells ABC News Radio the seed for his smash duet “We Were Us” was planted in 2005 when Miranda Lambert opened for him on tour.
“We used to do a song every night during my set,” Keith says. “I always loved singing with her, and I thought our voices went really well together.”
In the back of his mind, Keith says he was always looking for a duet that would fit their voices. When he heard “We Were Us,” he knew he’d found it.
“I just called her up and sent her the song, and she loved it. Her and Blake [Shelton] actually came to the studio and hung out for a few hours… We sang it together and it was done.”
“We Were Us” is the Aussie superstar’s first duet, but it may not be his last collaboration with Miranda. Backstage at the CMA Awards, the Female Vocalist of the Year joked that Keith owes her a guest appearance on her next CD, since their hit single is on his album, Fuse.
I have added 200+ screen captures from Keith Urban’s newly released video for We Were Us featuring our girl Miranda! Be sure to check out the video, the captures, and request the song using our request page!
