Everybody loves a great radio interview. When an artist calls in (or stops by) your favorite radio station and spends a half hour just chatting with the DJ and taking some calls from the fans to talk, and we mean really talk, they go in-depth on everything from their new music to anything else going on in their lives.
Other times, they only a have a few minutes and the DJ is forced to rapid fire those questions like a game show host in the final round.
That’s what happened when Miranda Lambert called into Drew Walker’s show on US99.5 in Chicago this week, and boy, was it fun. Miranda has a history with US99.5 going all the way back to her first album when she used the station’s studios to film part of her video for “New Strings.” Fun fact: those quick images of her in the studio with the DJ? That was Drew Walker, too.
We learned so much about Miranda in such a short amount of time. You can listen to the full interview here or read her answers below.
Favorite junk food vice: “I have to say Cheetos. We have a really unhealthy relationship. We break up a lot but we get back together here and there.”
Favorite daily wear/most comfy: “Jeans and a T-shirt, probably a white T-shirt from Target and jeans or cut-off jeans.”
Favorite summer drink with the girls: “Tito’s and coconut liqueur. Some lemons and limes, I get all fancy in it.”
Favorite book on the bus: “Actually I finished it already, but I read Willie’s new book. It’s a long story. It’s a great book. It told a lot about his life and real scenarios.”
Her thoughts on Snapchat: “I don’t do Snapchat, it’s too much. I can barely do Instagram and Twitter. I’m kind of boycotting it — enough is enough. You never know where that stuff lives. After a couple of Tito’s and coconut liquors, it’s best not to get on social media.”
The rising star she can’t stop listening to: “Maren Morris. She’s great, I really love her.”
Miranda, Tito’s and coconut you say? We’re going to have to try that one out.
