Miranda Lambert Moves The Pink Pistol Home & Blake Shelton Calls Dibs

pink pistol

Miranda Lambert will be putting her eclectic lifestyle boutique, The Pink Pistol all under one roof in her hometown of Lindale, Texas. The flagship store will be moving to a newer and bigger location beginning of August. The new location will have a larger inventory, more “Miranda’ize” merchandise, and unique shopping opportunities for her fans. The Pink Pistol in Tishomingo, Oklahoma will close.

Having all her passions and endeavors (outside of music) in Lindale has been a goal for Miranda. Her foundation, MuttNation Foundation that she started with her Mom, Bev, is based in Lindale. Their passion and commitment to helping rescue dogs, to educate the public about shelter dog adoptions and providing funds to no-kill shelters in all 50 states started at the family kitchen table in Lindale.

Miranda expressed, “It feels full circle to have everything under one ‘roof’ basically where it all began in my hometown of Lindale. I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all the employees who worked hard to help me bring the store in Tishomingo to life, as well as the patrons who came to experience the Pink Pistol and supported the store. Sometimes you need to close a chapter to build on a new beginning or go back home.”

The current Pink Pistol Texas store is located at 100 E. Hubbard in Lindale, TX until the opening of the new flagship store beginning of August, so plan your Labor Day Road Trip now! The store will be located at The Cannery, on 120 E North Street, Lindale, TX, a mixed use development complex with retail, fast casual and experiential dining as well as residential lofts. Stay tuned for more details soon.

However, Oklahoma’s former Pink Pistol location won’t be vacant for long.  Blake Shelton confirmed on Twitter that he’s purchased the space, and big things are in the works.

Miranda Lambert Brings the Heat on Opening Weekend of “Keeper of the Flame Tour”

The reigning queen of country music demonstrated why she wears the crown,” Amanda S. Amand of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch raved of Miranda Lambert’s Keeper of the Flame Tour opening set on Friday, May 13th at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights, Mo. with openers Kip Moore and Brothers Osborne. Perhaps that’s why a storm rolled in just an hour into Lambert’s set, mother nature’s way of offsetting the heat radiating from the seven-time Female Vocalist of the Year’s first tour stop of the season.

“I am so ready!” Lambert shared with the packed house amidst her exhilarating 20-song set that included a few unexpected twists like covers of “Covered Wagon” (Danny O’Keefe), “Slow Ride” (Foghat) and “Willin’” (Little Feat), which received a rousing response from the crowd. Lambert also surprised fans with an jazz style cover of Ella Fitzgerald’s “Your Red Wagon” to lead into her fiery hit single, “Little Red Wagon.”

Supporting act, Kip Moore “… showcased the harder edged sound he is know for” with “His raspy voice perfect for the crossover sound his trying to achieve,” according to Sean Derrick for ACM-nominated duo, Brothers Osborne also shared the stage to bring the crowd their hit single “Stay a Little Longer,” and others in the brothers’ easily recognizable style. “Singer T.J. Osborne’s full-throated baritone gets brilliant backing from John Osborne’s guitar,” praised the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “and both shine on the rollicking number they closed with, ‘It Ain’t My Fault.’”

“The crowd’s energy was just incredible. I told them I could feel the rain making its way to the stage, but they didn’t leave,” Lambert said after the rain and chilly temperatures began whipping those seated in the lawn section outside the shed around 10:20 pm—just an hour into her set. With arsenal still remaining, if they were staying, so was she. “We were all soaked by the end of the night, but those nights are what I live for.”

No one minded as they all clamored closer together celebrating a night of great music that ended just minutes before 11 p.m.

Entertainment Weekly Gets Real with Kenny Chesney on Spread The Love Tour

As the only country artist on Billboard’s Top Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years – even though he has only done a dozen headlining tours since 2002 –Kenny Chesney’s NFL stadium-filling treks have become a rite of summer. So when Entertainment Weekly was putting together their annual Summer Music Issue, there was only one tour to get inside: Chesney’s 2016 Spread The Love Tour with  Miranda Lambert,  Sam Hunt and  Old Dominion.

“The idea of sitting down with Sam and Miranda, talking about the road and music really appealed to me,” said the 8-time Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year. “Beyond how many trucks or favorite memories, they wanted to have a real talk about the state of what we do, what makes shows really click – and how awesome I think all of these acts touring with us this summer are.”

Meeting at an industrial complex rehearsal space in Nashville, Chesney, Lambert and Hunt took part in a photo shoot with noted photographer Danny Clinch, who’s also shot several of Chesney’s album covers. Then the trio retired to a tiny production room for an hour-long roundtable interview about what the summer will hold.

Sub-headlined “From portable bars to finding new fans, country’s biggest stars reveal the best parts of hitting the road together,” writer Madison Vain made connections between Lambert’s prior touring with Chesney, Hunt’s first breakthrough coming from Chesney’s No. 1 version of “Come Over” and the way some thrills of road life never fade. Read a preview of the piece here.

With “Noise,” the last-minute swapped single from Some Town Somewhere being Chesney’s most-added first week single ever, the man the Dallas Morning News called “Two parts Mick Jagger, one part Bruce Springsteen, one part Billy Graham” is hitting a new creative peak. Spread The Love reflects that passion for music among all of this year’s participants.

“Normally, I don’t like to give too much away before the shows really get into the pocket,” Chesney says of the decision to give Entertainment Weekly such an in-depth interview. “But this is such a creative, musical bunch… and everyone out here loves music with that same intense passion that my guys do, so we figured: why not? And to talk music like that with people I respect so much, well, it was a pretty cool way to spend a morning.”

Having kicked off with 50,430 members of the No Shoes Nation as the first concert at Auburn University’s Jordan-Hare Stadium, Spread The Love is already in high gear. By summer’s end, Chesney will have logged 135 stadium shows and well over a million fans on each of his 13 headlining tours.

As “Noise” hits Top 10, No Shoes Radio goes live on SiriusXM from Asbury Park, NJ’s Stone Pony tonight and Some Town Somewhere gets closer to its July 8 street date, this week’s Entertainment Weekly is a chance to see three stars unguarded and throwing down.
