Miranda Lambert has revitalized her hometown of Tishomingo, Oklahoma, with her boutique, The Pink Pistol, bringing in thousands of tourists every year. Now she’s expanding her small-town empire with the Ladysmith Bed & Breakfast opening later this year. Miranda’s new venture is located right across the street from her boutique.
Miranda tells ABC News Radio “It’s built in 1901, so it’s been over a year of renovations. It is a bed and breakfast, but it’s also an events center. So, you can rent it for weddings and showers and private parties — all kinds of stuff, but it does have eight rooms.”
Miranda admits she doesn’t know anything about running a bed and breakfast, but she just couldn’t let this building go unrestored.
“We’re hoping to open in late summer and have people come,” Miranda says. “I’m not setting a date, ’cause I don’t wanna set myself up for failure, you know, but it’s really beautiful, and I think it’s gonna be so much fun for people.”
For fans planning a trip to check out Tishomingo, Miranda says the closest airports are Dallas and Oklahoma City, which is an hour-and-a-half both ways.
Miranda’s also finding some time to tend her to her main gig of being a country superstar. Her Platinum Tour launches July 10 in Fort Laramie, Ohio.
