MIRANDA LAMBERT and BLAKE SHELTON are staying true to their country roots. Instead of jetting off to some exotic honeymoon . . . they strapped on the hip waders and went angling.
–Miranda even Tweeted a photo of the fish she caught, which looks to me like a largemouth bass. She wrote in the Tweet, quote, “Honeymoon bliss!”
–Miranda is also staying away from that hyphenated married name fad. She is now officially Miranda Shelton. That’s what her driver’s license says.
–Of course, she Tweeted that too. Just a couple days after the wedding, she wrote, “Mrs. Shelton here! Winning!”
-Unfortunately, your Miranda Lambert albums will not become collector’s items because she’s keeping her maiden name professionally.
TAYLOR SWIFT is the cover story in the June issue of “InStyle” magazine. They leaked a little of the riveting interview where she talks about, what else, love.

–”You never know who’s going to come into your life . . . and for me, when I picture the person I want to end up with, I don’t think about what their career is, or what they look like. I picture the feeling I get when I’m with them.” The issue is out Friday.
TIM MCGRAW is being sued by his record label, Curb Records, for breach of contract. Tim’s already signed with a different label. Curb’s beef is that Tim gave them the master recordings for his upcoming album “Emotional Traffic” too close to the completion of his last album, “Southern Voice”, which came out in 2009. Because of that, the new album is not “topical and new”. Apparently, that was stipulated in his contract.
