Redbook is going country.
Their April issue features a lovely Miranda Lambert keeping it casual in some blue jeans, a blue top, and her guitar.
The issue, which comes out next week, focuses on Lambert’s life, how she’s getting in shape for her upcoming wedding, some advice from Reba McEntire and more.
Check out some of the highlights from the interview below:
On performing: "In my everyday life, I'm pretty normal. But I love the moments when I can get on stage and headbang and freak out and smash my guitar and all that too."
On her fiance, country musician Blake Shelton: "Blake lets me be who I am. And I love his quirky sense of humor. He'll say, 'What's it like to be so straight that you never laugh?' I've loosened up a lot since we started dating. Then at times I'm like, 'This is reality time; turn off the funny guy.' So we balance each other out."
On marriage: "I'm going into it with complete confidence. Marriage is gonna be your stability through everything. It's someone who always has your back. And it makes me want to be a better woman so I can be that for Blake. Forever."
On being called the "Lady Gaga of Nashville": "I'm not near as brave as her [laughs], but I take it as a compliment. She's awesome. I guess it's the fact that I don't give a crap what people think. I just am who I am."
