Miranda Lambert, BeyoncÃ© Trade Compliments
Being a superstar in your own right doesn’t mean you don’t get starstruck yourself. Case in point: reigning CMA and ACM Female Vocalist of the Year, Miranda Lambert.
Earlier this month at the Grammys, the country songstress was close enough to one of her own musical idols, Beyoncé, to reach out and touch her — which is exactly what she did. “I tapped her on the shoulder and just told her I was a huge fan and that she was a big inspiration to me,” Miranda tells CMT. “I just talked to her like a genuine fan — because I am. I was really nervous, but she’s very gracious. She was very, very sweet. And she said, ‘I’m a fan of you and your husband.’”
The “Mama’s Broken Heart” singer confessed to Beyoncé that she has seen her in concert four times already, and plans to catch her show in Dallas in July. “I love to go her shows because I learn so much from her. Her style is so different from mine … obviously,” Miranda explains.
This week, Miranda and Blake found themselves only a few spots away from Beyoncé and her husband, Jay-Z, on Men’s Health list of the Hottest Celebrity Couples of the year. The singers join several other famous duos, including Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, Prince William and Kate Middleton, Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres and Julianne Hough and Ryan Seacrest in being noticed for their mutual good looks.
Blake and Miranda came in at No. 7, while Beyoncé and her rap icon hubby landed in the No. 3 spot.
Miranda has shows in Illinois and Michigan this weekend (February 22 and 23), while her adoring spouse has a weekend off before he performs two shows at the Grand Ole Opry next week. See her concert schedule here, and click here to see all of Blake’s upcoming shows.
