Miranda Lambert Through the Years: ‘Nashville Star,’ Music, Marriages

first_imgMiranda Lambert has been unstoppable since she hit the music scene in 2003 as a contestant on Nashville Star. Since then, the country superstar has released seven solo albums, three albums with her group, Pistol Annies, and won countless awards for her undeniably catchy tunes.“I haven’t changed from Lindale at all,” she told Refinery29 in October 2019, referencing the Texas town where she was raised. “The only thing that has changed is that now I live in Nashville, I spend time in New York, and I have had a really amazing journey artistically so my career is on this path. Other than that, I’m still this same booze and jeans girl that I was before I left.”- Advertisement – Lambert’s marriage to Shelton ended in 2015, and she had two more high-profile relationships — with Anderson East then Evan Felker — before marrying police officer Brendan McLoughlin in 2019.“I met the love of my life.

PSG hit five to ease pain of Real Madrid defeat

first_imgAfter Meunier’s opener, Nkunku put the game beyond Metz before the half-hour mark with two low finishes.He was unlucky not to get a hat-trick, a header from Angel di Maria’s cross on the stroke of half-time disallowed for a marginal offside call.However, Mbappe did make it 4-0 before the interval by scoring after being set up by Marco Verratti.Captain Silva headed in late on to complete the scoring, as Paris maintained their perfect record at home in the league this season.Second-placed Monaco won 3-1 at Strasbourg on Friday with Stevan Jovetic, Rony Lopes and Fabinho getting their goals.– Lille fans invade pitch –Third-placed Marseille go to Toulouse and fourth-placed Lyon host Caen on Sunday.Elsewhere, hundreds of angry Lille supporters invaded the pitch at their Stade Pierre-Mauroy after their struggling side drew 1-1 at home to Montpellier.Some of the pitch invaders tried to attack the young forward Nicolas Pepe, who had scored their goal, before making their way towards the players tunnel, below where club directors were watching on.Stewards eventually managed to keep back the supporters, who are unhappy at the way their team’s season is going — Lille are in the relegation zone, with Christophe Galtier struggling to turn around the fortunes of the side after Marcelo Bielsa was sacked late last year.Nantes moved back up to fifth, which is likely to be enough for a European place, after beating Troyes 1-0 with a late Emiliano Sala goal, his 12th of the season.They replace local rivals Rennes, who came from behind to draw 1-1 with Saint-Etienne.Share on: WhatsApp Paris, France | AFP | Paris Saint-Germain brushed aside bottom club Metz 5-0 in Ligue 1 on Saturday to ease some of the pain of their Champions League exit at the hands of Real Madrid in midweek.Twenty-year-old Christopher Nkunku scored twice for PSG at the Parc des Princes, with Thomas Meunier, Kylian Mbappe and Thiago Silva also on target.The result restores PSG’s 14-point lead over reigning champions Monaco at the top of the table with just nine games left, keeping them on course to reclaim the title.A clean sweep of the domestic trophies for the third time in four seasons is on the cards, although that will not completely make up for the disappointment of another underwhelming campaign in the Champions League.Tuesday’s 2-1 home defeat against Madrid condemned them to a second consecutive exit from that competition in the last 16 and effectively ended any prospect of Spanish coach Unai Emery still being in charge next season.Emery, who was jeered by some sections of the home support, had to somehow lift his side for this game, with PSG missing suspended leading scorer Edinson Cavani as well as the injured Neymar.“Everyone knows that we are disappointed, that we disappointed the fans, but we are trying to move forward again,” said Mbappe.“One match is not going to allow us to forget everything. Digesting what happened is difficult but we are professionals, so we need to turn the page and move on.”Belgian right-back Meunier, who came in for Dani Alves and opened the scoring inside five minutes, added: “It was an excellent reaction after the elimination.“It is very positive. Mentally it does us good, and it allows us to put Tuesday almost definitively behind us.“There is no point living with regrets. We have three trophies to go and win still and that is the most important thing,” added Meunier, whose side are through to the French Cup semi-finals and play Monaco in the League Cup final at the end of this month.last_img read more

Schmidt holds on – despite Hall’s record charge

first_img Tags: Alwoodley Golf Club, Brabazon Trophy 1 Jun 2019 Schmidt holds on – despite Hall’s record charge Yorkshire’s Ben Schmidt withstood a record-breaking charge from Harry Hall today to hold on to a one-shot lead in the Brabazon Trophy at Alwoodley Golf Club.Hall, from West Cornwall, swept up the leaderboard with his eight-under 63, which set a new course record and took him to 10-under in the English Men’s Open Amateur Stroke Play.Schmidt, meanwhile, shot two-under 69 – his third sub-par round – and is 11-under for the championship, which he is playing for the first time.“It was tough out there today,” said the 16-year-old from Rotherham Golf Club. “There was quite a bit of pressure and a fair few people watching, but I played pretty solid. I went out there and shot under par again – I haven’t given anything back yet.”He started well again with three birdies in the first five holes and despite a bogey on six – his first dropped shot in 27 holes – he was three-under playing the last. There he was caught out by a flier, with his seven-iron approach covering 230 yards and finishing 50 yards past the pin. It cost him a bogey – but not the lead.Round three of a championship is traditionally moving day and it was clear from early on that today’s conditions were ideal for scoring. Harry Hall made sure he grabbed the advantage.The 21-year-old had a quiet day on the course yesterday, scoring one-over 72. After that he tackled the jet lag which followed his Tuesday flight back from university in the USA, prescribing himself a nap and a work out.“I came out with a lot of energy today and it paid off,” he said after signing for the third course record of his career.His round included two eagles, five birdies and one bogey – which he credited with giving him the final push to the record.He dropped the shot on the 15th after finding a greenside bunker and missing a 5ft putt. But he immediately followed up with two consecutive birdies.“I hit the putt perfectly and it didn’t go in. But my reaction to that putt allowed me to make two birdies after that. I was able to start the next one on line from 6ft and it dropped,” said Hall.He put the record in his grasp when he holed a 35ft putt for birdie on 17 and secured it with a solid par on the difficult 18th.“I’m very pleased,” he said. “I said to a few people that it would be nice to be in contention and I think I have put myself in a good place and, hopefully, in the final group.”Hall and Schmidt will, indeed, tee off last tomorrow at 11.58am. Behind them are Jake Hapgood of Wales, who is six-under, while Charlie Thornton (Fulford) and David Langley (Castle Royle) are both five-under.Among the day’s big movers were Jannik de Bruyn of Germany, Luca Filippi of South Africa and England’s Billy McKenzie (Rowlands Castle) who respectively shot 67, 66 and 68 to move up the leaderboard.Click here for full scoresImage copyright Leaderboard Photographylast_img read more
