Miranda Lambert Saves a Town + CMA Country Christmas Airs Tonight

Over the weekend, Miranda Lambert opened the Platinum Ballroom at her Oklahoma bed and breakfast with a concert from The Sideshow Drifters. She’s also been credited with saving Tishomingo, the tiny town where she and Blake live. In 2012, when she opened her retail store, the Pink Pistol, others started doing the same and now Main Street that was nearly empty has only two storefronts empty right now. The Pink Pistol carries everything from clothes to guitar-shaped spatulas to a tray that makes bullet-shaped ice. I also found out the lobby of her B & B has a confessional slash kissing booth and a sofa made from an old Tilt-A-Whirl car.

The CMA Country Christmas airs tonight on ABC hosted by Jennifer Nettles. Performers include Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, Brett Eldredge, Sara Evans, Hunter Hayes plus Brad Paisley will play guitar while Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler sings.

When asked if she’ll do any online shopping today, Carrie Underwood says she’s definitely a “Cyber Monday kinda girl.”

Finally - newcomer Chase Rice will make his debut appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight.
