Newest family member

The singer announced the newest addition to the Lambert-Shelton clan over Instagram. "In honer (sic) of derby week...Welcome our newest family member! Willowbrand Saith ap Michael ...Shelton:) #ponypic." But don't expect any mini-Lambert or Sheltons running around any time soon. The couple, who are sick of fighting rumors of divorce and pregnancies, take to Twitter to set the record straight. "“@blakeshelton: Me & @mirandalambert are reading about our separation. I hope I get all the liquor in the divorce!” AND the imaginary baby?!"

Dramatic slim-down

Lambert showed off her newly svelte figure at country music's biggest party of the year. The "Automatic" singer looked better than ever in her Swarovski crystal studded nude gown.

"I just wanted to get healthier and go into my 30s in the best shape I could be in," she told People.

A different kind of shotgun wedding

Lambert and Shelton sure know how to clean up. While the country couple are red carpet-ready here, they're really most comfortable in blue jeans and a t-shirt.

Lambert tweeted along with a picture of her holding the meat. Click here for more stars who hunt.

'Something Bad'

Although Lambert and Carrie Underwood have collaborated in the past (they performed "Travelin' Band" at the 45th ACM Awards in 2010), that didn't stop Lambert from being a bundle of nerves when approaching Underwood for a duet. "Singing with Carrie Underwood is very, very intimidating," Lambert admitted said of asking Underwood to record "Something Bad" for her upcoming "Platinum" album. "Asking her to do this was nerve-wracking."
