Miranda Lambert is having a banner year! She’s nabbed a few 2015 Grammy noms after more than a handful of CMA Awards from last month. She’s also happily — very happily — married to fellow country star BalkeShelton, which she says is just “the best.” Check out her cover shot for Marie Claire Magazine in January and what she says about hubby Blake!

“I’m not sunshine and roses,”  “Blake’s the happiest person on the planet. He pulls me out of my darkness … Literally, everything is the best about being married.”

She also mentioned to the mag that she would love to be a part of some voice acting, maybe with a cartoon of some kind. And all I say to that is, YES!

Don’t forget! It’s out today!!
