It’s no surprise that a member of a group with a name like the Pistol Annies is a straight-shooter herself. Native Texan Miranda Lambert says that’s what she looks for in other people as well.
“I have one of those faces that whatever I think is on my face, whether it’s good or bad,” she laughs. “I wish I could act a little better sometimes, but what I like about people is just when they’re themselves… Whether they are sweet or not sweet, I’d rather just know upfront how they really are.”
Miranda believes her instincts about other folks are typically on target too.
“I feel like you can tell when you meet someone if they’re genuine,” she says. “I like for people to be real and not put-on, and I think people can also judge that about me.”
Right now, Miranda is concentrating on The Pink Pistol, a gift shop she’s opening in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, near the ranch where she and husband Blake Shelton live. Its grand opening is set for the day after Thanksgiving.
