As previously reported, country music superstar and Oklahoma transplant Miranda Lambert will officially open a store called the Pink Pistol in her adopted hometown of Tishomingo on Friday, Nov. 23.
Lambert and her husband, fellow country music superstar and TV personality Blake Shelton, live on a farm outside the south central Oklahoma community.
“We’re having the Grand Opening the day after Thanksgiving, on Black Friday, only we’re calling it Pink Friday,” Miranda tells The Boot. “We’re going to make it a tradition to turn the block pink every year at that time.
Today, Lambert directed her Facebook fans to the new Pink Pistol Facebook page so they could get information about the inaugural Pink Pistol Princess Pageant planned for the shop’s opening day:
To submit an entry: Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the contestants name (if under the age of 18 please include guardians name), age and hometown of contestant and 2 hobbies/interest. If your entry has been accepted, you will be notified by Tuesday November 20th 2012.
The singer-songwriter tells The Boot the store will carry a variety of merchandise.
“It’s antiques, gifts, boots, jeans and pretty much everything you can imagine. My favorite thing in the store is a glittery pink bicycle hanging from the ceiling. I’m really 12 at heart,” she adds with a laugh.
The store joins other shops in the town with such whimsical names as the Lucky Rose, the Rose Petal and Whatever Is Lovely.
Miranda recently finished her 2012 tour and will be featured on Blake’s Christmas special, “Not So Family Christmas,” set to air Dec. 3 on NBC.
The three-time Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year also is vying for Favorite Female Vocalist, Country, at the American Music Awards, which will air Sunday on ABC.
As previously reported, Lambert also is planning a 2013 co-headlining tour with fellow country superstar Dierks Bentley that will include Oklahoma City and Tulsa shows. The “Locked & Reloaded Tour” will stop March 8 at Oklahoma City’s Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W Reno. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at the Chesapeake Energy Arena box office, online at LiveNation.com or by phone at (800) 745-3000. Ticket prices are $52.75 and $28 for the Oklahoma City concert.
The particulars for the Tulsa show have not yet been announced.
“I love projects,” Lambert explains to The Boot. “I love anything that stimulates my creativity.”
