Miranda Lambert: Hubby Blake Shelton Plans Break

By: Pam Wright - June 12, 2014

Miranda Lambert has had an incredibly busy, hectic and at times scary week, and it looks like it’s only going to get busier in the weeks to come as she promotes her number one album, Platinum. However, the country singer has something to look forward to — hubby Blake Shelton is preparing a little get-away for his wife.

Speaking with reporters at a news conference Tuesday while promoting his upcoming summer tour, The Voice star said he’s got a plan in place to offer Lambert a relaxing break when she finally gets to return to Oklahoma sometime next week. Shelton said the pair owns a boat on Lake Texoma and he took some time Sunday making sure it works before returning to Nashville.

“I’m not a mechanic, but I managed to get this thing running because I know when she gets back she’s going to want to do something like that,” Shelton said. “She’s going to want to just go float around and drink or be pulled on a tube, something like that. So I figured I’d get me some points here and get the boat running. I’m actually proud of myself.”

Lambert had a scary moment this week when a private jet taking the country music star back to Nashville from New York made an emergency landing in Clarksburg, West Virginia.

The plane lost pressure and the group was forced to spend about three hours on the ground while the plane was repaired, said Wes Vause, Lambert’s publicist. While on the ground, Lambert hung out with firefighters, trying on their appropriately shiny hazmat (Platinum) suits, listening to country music and posting pictures to Instagram.

“All in all, it was a pretty good day,” said Vause.

They really are the sweetest couple.
