One of the big stories at the CMA Awards this year was Miranda Lambert's weight loss. Mrs. Blake Shelton showed up much slimmer than we have seen her in the past and that led some in the media to speculate her weight loss was the result of a surgical procedure. Miranda has taken to Twitter to refute the claims saying "I DID NOT have surgery to lose weight. That's rediculous. I lost my weight the healthy and good old fashioned way. Watching what I eat and working out." Miranda will be back in the spotlight on December 10th at the American Country Awards in Las Vegas. She is nominated for four awards including Artist Of The Year: Female.
Little Big Town is one of the most talented and popular groups in country music. They recently won the CMA Vocal Group Of The Year Award. That still didn't stop one misinformed listener to call the bad out over lyrics in their current hit "Sober." Band member Karen Fairchild recently retweeted a fan who had posted the line, "when I die, I don't wanna go sober." Another fan who misunderstood the lyric replied, "LBT, is that the way you want to meet your maker on judgement day?" Obviously the fan missed the point of the song "Sober," which is about being drunk on love. Social media seems to have brought out the inner idiot in lots of people. Little Big Town will be at the Patriot Center on Saturday with Keith Urban and Dustin Lynch.
