Eric Church & Miranda Lambert Grace the Cover of the New Rolling Stone Magazine

Rolling Stone Magazine is proud to be celebrating the launch of, a new website fully dedicated to the genre with a special Country Issue featuring two of Nashville’s most compelling stars: Eric Church and Miranda Lambert.

In her first Rolling Stone cover story, Miranda Lambert talks about her adopted hometown of Tishomingo, Oklahoma (population “Three thousand, one hundred,” she proudly proclaims), the site of her ever-growing empire – her Pink Pistol clothing boutique and a planned bed-and-breakfast named after her Smith & Wesson,  and the farm she shares with her husband, Blake Shelton.

Rolling Stone also gains unprecedented access to Eric Church, dining in Nashville with his wife and son (something the country rebel has never allowed journalists to do before), following him to Vegas for a private performance and visiting the Stagecoach Festival to catch his headlining set.

Church chats about getting pranked by Brad Paisley and making amends with Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert after dissing stars who come out of Nashville and go into reality television. And the singer of the Number One country hit “Springsteen” talks about meeting with the Jersey icon. “You can’t really put Bruce in a box — what kind of music does Bruce do?” Church says. “It could be country. If he came out right now? No doubt, that’s where he’d live.”

Look for the issue on stands and in the iTunes App Store Friday, June 6th.  ERIC CHURCH is is in concert both at the Kicker Country Stampede June 28th and with Dwight Yoakam and Halestorm on Friday, December 5, at the Sprint Center in Kansas City.

Miranda Lambert performs at the Cricket Wireless Amphitheater in Bonner Springs with special guests Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett on Sunday, August 17th.
