Miranda Lambert carries packages of Crystal Light in her purse so when she's at a bar, she can order Bacardi and water and mix her own cocktail.

She has two CMA Awards nominations this year -- Female Vocalist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year with Loretta Lynn and Sheryl Crow.

Miranda  says she sometimes feels like a "Twiddow" -- a Twitter widow -- when hubby Blake Shelton gets preoccupied with the social networking site.

Miranda and Blake are co-producing Neal McCoy's new album.

She says working with her girl group Pistol Annies has helped raise the bar on her solo career.
