Playing Miranda Lambert Teases Pistol Annies' Return & Why Girls Are Taking Over Country Music!

Miranda Lambert is looking sensational on the ACMs red carpet!

Dressed in a platinum cleavage-barring Bibhu Mohapatra gown, the 31-year-old country starlet explained why it was the perfect dress for the night.

"I just felt like it was classy and had a little edge and something different for me. I've never worn this color so I'm loving it," Lambert gushed to ETonline. "It has a high slit and it's really windy out here so I'm kind of walking around here lop-sided just in case."

It's a huge night for the "Little Red Wagon" singer -- not only is her husband, Blake Shelton, hosting the ACMs, but Lambert is the most-nominated artist of the year. The blonde beauty spilled that she is proud to be representing the girls tonight and she feels that country music is shifting away from that "boy's club" mentality.

"I think it's really only boys a lot right now because there are so many great guys artists out right now, but there are some females coming up that I love and that I'm so proud of," Lambert explained.

"There's so many great female artists on the way up and I feel like it's just one of those phases -- sometimes it's the guys, sometimes it's the girls," she continued. "But we'll take over eventually like we always do."

Speaking of girls taking over, Lambert revealed that the Pistol Annies – her all-girl trio band -- could be returning back from their hiatus sooner than you'd think. "Angaleena [Presley] just released a record and Ashley [Monroe] is about to release another solo record and I'm working on another solo, so we’re been texting a lot and just trying to figure [everything] out," she explained.  Monroe even attended as Lambert’s date!

"When we get in a room it's magic and so we just have to find time in our schedules… to just get in a room for a couple of days and I'm sure more magic will happen," she said.

While Lambert was gearing up for her ACMs performance, her country-loving husband was prepping for his hosting duties. "[Blake] is so great at this. This is right up his alley and every time he hosts he just amazes me at how great he is at this."

So what kind of tricks does Shelton have up his sleeves? "I have no idea and I have not seen anything," Lambert said of her hubby's award-show secrets. "I'm always the butt of a couple of jokes, so I just hope that they're tasteful -- I'll take that."

If there's one thing that seems like a given, it's that Shelton is definitely going to have a few drinks in him before he hits that stage. He even tweeted earlier, "I've officially drank too much to drive today. Which means I'm ready to host a live television show tonight."

Lambert, said, "I haven't seen him all day because he's been rehearsing, but the last state I saw him in he was pretty good, but you know that was a couple hours ago so I'm not really sure what's going to happen," -- Reporting by Sophie Schillaci
