Miranda Lambert new face of 'Got milk?' campaign
Oklahoma resident Miranda Lambert's sporting something new these days.
A milk mustache.
She's the face of latest National Milk Mustache "got milk?" campaign, called The Breakfast Project.
The ad shows Lambert kicked back on her and husband Blake Shelton's Oklahoma farm with the trademark mustache and the words "Fine tune your morning. Got milk? Nourish every day."

Also Lambert and Shelton told People magazine that they'll celebrate their multiple Country Music Association wins with some quiet time on their ranch. "We're going home for Thanksgiving," she told People.
"We'll have four days there, and again for Christmas. We never see each other, so we cherish every moment together."
Kings of Leon schedule six summer shows in England
Oklahoma-tied arena rocker Kings of Leon announced plans for a 2013 tour of the United Kingdom.
The group set six shows in June and July, two each in London, Birmingham and Manchester. The band has been on a hiatus for more than a year and recently started work on its sixth studio album. Kings of Leon, with ties to Talihina, Okla., was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame in 2011.
Trisha Yearwood brags on home state of Oklahoma
Country singer and foodie Trisha Yearwood recently told Southern Living magazine that she loves her home state because "Oklahoma is the land of common sense. ... The nicest people you're ever going to meet live here."
The interview is in the November issue of Southern Living, on newsstands now.
Yearwood moved to Owasso, outside of Tulsa, 11 years ago with husband Garth Brooks. She says of Owasso, "... Everyone is practical and down to earth, and none of them care if you're some hit singer, which makes it a wonderful place to raise your children."
She's now hosting her second season of "Trisha's Southern Kitchen" on the Food Network and said she started cooking because she missed her mom after a move to Nashville early in her career.
"I was homesick and missed my mother's cooking, so I tried to make her potato salad," she told the magazine. "I cried when it tasted like hers."
She also said of the first time she met Brooks, "The first day we met, we sang together; it felt like we'd been singing together our whole lives."
