Miranda Lambert says the hatchet is buried with Ashton Kutcher.
Kutcher rose a few eyebrows with his outfit choice and half-hearted attempt at singing country music at the ACM Awards in Las Vegas last month.
The actor approached her at The Kentucky Derby over the weekend. Lambert told WQYK’s Steve Austin that Ashton was sincere in his apology, saying to her, “I love country music. I grew up on a farm in Iowa. I would never make fun of country. I was just trying to be funny.”
Lambert says the two hung out the next day and describes Kutcher as “really sweet.”
Miranda says she enjoys being “country royalty” with her husband Blake Shelton, saying “It’s cool to celebrate it with somebody you love and then you just go home and be normal. It’s awesome.”
Blake is busy these days as The Voice competition is wrapping up. Clearwater’s Juliet Simms is in the running and Miranda says reality show contestants sometimes get a bad rap. Lambert says that reality show contestants are changing the music industry, referencing Kelly Clarkson. She says the negative comments people have made over the years about reality shows are from people who are “jealous because they didn’t get the opportunity to be on one.”
