2011 Grammys Red Carpet Highlights
Sunday night’s Grammy Awards brought celebrities from all musical genres together to celebrate the best of the best. Country music was well represented with the likes of multiple nominees including Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band, Miranda Lambert and more. The Boot brings you the highlights from E! and the TV Guide Channel’s red carpet interviews with country stars.
Miranda Lambert on wedding planning: “I have a great planner, and she has got it under control. I’m still involved a lot, but with the fun stuff, not the logistics and the boring stuff. It’s awesome because I have so much other stuff going on.”
Miranda on Blake Shelton‘s wedding attire: “I told him to just be himself. This is our wedding, not mine. I’m not really setting a bunch of rules. I want it to be fun and comfortable. All I care about is the man, the bar and the entertainment. Those are the main three things.”
Blake’s reaction to Miranda’s wedding requirements: “Did she say that? She said that for y’all. I’m going to TiVo this and watch it back. She says that to you to keep that ‘I’m Miranda Lambert and I’m from Texas, by God’ attitude.”
Ty Murray on baby names for his and Jewel‘s baby-on-the-way: “We’ve got a list going. We’ve actually been thinking about a list of names for three or four years now. Now it’s a matter of narrowing that list down.”
Jewel on whether or not she will encourage her son to follow a career in music: “My husband’s a bull rider and I’m a musician … hopefully he’ll take after me because I don’t want him riding bulls! It’s just so dangerous! [laughs]”
Julianne Hough on a possible return to ‘Dancing With the Stars‘: “You never know what will happen in the future, but at the moment I’m obviously focused on the film and music side of things. I’m so grateful for the show. I obviously would not be standing here at this moment with you if it wasn’t for [‘DWTS’], and obviously the fans have followed me from day one are unbelievable. They have been so supportive.”
LeAnn Rimes on Valentine’s Day plans with fiance Eddie Cibrian: “We went out to dinner last night with some friends, because we have his boys on Valentine’s Day. We will literally be playing Wii with some friends and eating pizza, which is better than anything we could be doing.”
Keith Urban on why he thinks his music connects with fans: “I just get in the studio and I think it’s about authenticity, that’s all. I record songs that come from a real place. I have real things happening in my life so I don’t have to imagine writing about them.”
