Can you believe there are people on this earth who have never heard Country Music, or seen a Country Music video? I know what you’re thinking… Sad life! Not everyone is born lucky.

Yes, this is a true statement. Dierks Bentley has been touring with his 90’s Country cover band. He sports a mullet, crazy sunglasses, and a mustache.

It really is too good to be true, that is until he invites “Shelby Shelton” aka Miranda Lambert for a guest collaboration of Shania Twain’s “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?”

Earlier this month, we saw an unforgettable performance of “Cowboy Take Me Away” from Miranda Lambert, RaeLynn, & Gwen Sebastian.

Watch the fun, unforgettable collaboration below from Dierks & Miranda:

Blake-Miranda

Miranda Lambert spoke with Country 106.5 WYRK about her disagreements on her husband Blake Shelton when it comes to The Voice, and some of her biggest pet peeves.

“I watch The Voice as an absolute fan. I don’t get any inside information because I’d rather just watch it as a fan, but sometimes it’s like, why did you say that? Or, why did you turn around on that one -that wasn’t any good! Or, why didn’t you turn around? So yeah, I definitely have my opinions.”

Miranda went on to reveal a few details on how her husband can rub her the wrong way. “He’s very witty, and he always has a comeback for everything.”

Watch the whole interview below, and learn more details about her upcoming tour dates.

“We want there to be more girls in Country Music,” said Miranda Lambert and she teamed up with Gwen Sebastian, and RaeLynn for a special performance in Tacoma, Washington on the Certified Platinum tour.

“We really miss the Dixie Chicks,” said Miranda as the audience erupted in applause.

The girls then delivered a stunning rendition of their hit “Cowboy Take Me Away” as the audience sung along word for word.
