Music City is about to get a treat! Country power couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert,who were voted "Most Desirable Celebrity Neighbors" in real estate blog Zillow's annual poll last year, are moving to town.
Shelton and Lambert, who are famous for holding fast to their Oklahoma residency, finally decided to make the plunge and purchase a house in Nashville. We haven't seen photos of the new abode, but we're willing to bet Mr. and Mrs. Lambert-Shelton will be able to relax in style while working on their respective new releases.
It probably comes as a big surprise to most fans that the couple have never put down roots in Nashville -- seeing as they've staked their claim on Music City. The pair have firmly established themselves as the reigning king and queen couple of country, having won the Country Music Association's male/female artist of the year awards four consecutive years in a row. However, they've chose instead to make Shelton's native Oklahoma home base since their 2010 wedding.
Their house in the "Sooner State" will, as a matter of fact, continue to be their main address. Lambert, who grew up in neighboring Texas, has stated often that she enjoys the more peaceful lifestyle her husband's home town of Tishomingo offers. "I think most famous people would like sometimes to be incognito and can go anywhere without being recognized,” she told the Oklahoma Gazette in 2011. "Where I live in Oklahoma, I am just ‘Miranda’ to the locals."
The hardworking musicians certainly won't be putting the beautiful new house to waste, as they both are hotter than ever on the county scene. The couple also lease a home in Los Angeles for use during Shelton's "Voice" season.
