Miranda Lambert Hints at New Album
While the seasoned star is far from a new artist, she continues to hustle like one. In addition to her current tour schedule, the artist is not taking any time off of new projects.
She recently opened up her own restaurant Casa Rosa in Nashville. Located along the busy section of Broadway, the artist’s restaurant boasts tequila, tacos and music. She’s also known to frequent the spot when she can. It’s an endeavor she says she’s really proud of.
