Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton Clink CMA Awards

Country music's first hunting couple will soon stow their shiny awards and reach for their rifles.

The Headline: Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton Clink their CMA Awards

The Summary:Craig Shelburne of CMT News reports that country music sensations Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, who are engaged to be married, clinked their trophies and celebrated after winning their combined five County Music Association awards. But we all could have guessed that. Even emcee and country music star Brad Paisley crowed from center stage, “After the night that Blake and Miranda are having, I think we can expect a baby in nine months!” There was no doubt much reveling by the star couple at the many post-parties afterward, but Miranda’s words were revealing about the kind of people Lambert and Shelton are: "I'm looking forward to the holidays where we can sit down and look at each other and go, 'Holy crap.' We got engaged, and then our careers have just taken off,” said Lambert.

Jeff Take: Well, I know what kind of people they are, and I know other places they will be on the holidays on their Oklahoma property, and it isn’t a chair. It’s a deer stand. I know something other than trophies that will be clinking: the bolts of their rifles as they chamber a round. Maybe even the snick of a safety will be heard, followed by the boom of a rifle on a crisp Thanksgiving morning. You see, Blake and Miranda are hunters, NRA members and advocates of our country way of life. And that’s why Blake represents the National Rifle Association’s newest initiative, NRA Country.

So here’s to you, Blake, Miranda and about 6-million deer hunters that head to the woods this fall. Don some camo, clink your bolt home, and remember what freedom, the outdoors and this wonderful country is all about.


The CountryQuote:"I've used up all of the stupid things I always have to come out here and say to y'all," said a serious Shelton after winning the CMA Award. "Little comments and smart-ass things that most of you all have known me for. I don't have those tonight."
