Miranda Lambert tells Time magazine that saving dogs is a mission of love. “It’s where my heart is. It started with volunteering at the Humane Society in Texas; I adopted a little dog who was my companion. For the first seven years of my career, she went everywhere with me; she was therapy. When I lived in Oklahoma, it was a very rural area and I fostered about 38 dogs myself. I think that’s pretty good.”
Tim McGraw tells the NY Daily News what his secret to a long-lasting marriage is. “We’re not professionals at it, I think you have to agree to disagree sometimes, and you have to give each other room. You certainly have to appreciate each other.”
Sounds Like Nashville claims Kellie Pickler has covered the Mister Rogers song “It’s Such A Good Feeling” for a tribute album to Fred Rogers titled ”Thank You Mister Rogers: Music and Memories”.
Lady Antebellum lead singer Hillary Scott tells the website mlive.com that motherhood suits her just fine. “It is the greatest thing in the entire world. I feel so fulfilled as a person right now. Being a mother, knowing that’s something I’ve always wanted to do in my life, at the right time, and also get to perform night after night and see all these smiles singing back at us. Really, my heart’s about to burst. I can’t hardly stand it.”
Matt Stell tells Vox magazine that he had a very different career path in mind when he attended college. “I was a philosophy and religion major in my undergraduate. And I was a communications major [later], but I really studied more political or rhetorical criticism, like social critiques. I never really went to school with the idea of “I want this job when I get out.” Going to school was an enrichment thing for me. The two things humans do are the reason and communicate, and those were both of my careers. I just felt like I could do anything better with those degrees, and I was interested in them. I’m really motivated to do stuff when I’m interested in something. When I’m not, I would rather just have all my teeth pulled out and put back in.”
Thomas Rhett tells GQ magazine that he knew he wanted to be a country star when he was a teenager. “I was probably 16, I had just started learning guitar and had learned ‘3 AM’ by Matchbox Twenty. I remember playing and singing it in front of my friends around a campfire on some random Friday night. I realized then that I was able to hold a crowd just by doing a verse-chorus of a song they knew, and it just clicked for me.”
