Miranda Lambert is best known for her spitfire country songs, and as the wife of The Voice’s Blake Shelton. Though Lambert’s no stranger of TV (she got her start on USA’s defunct Nashville Star), the crooner is gearing up for her debut guest star role on NBC’s Law and Order: SVU.
SVU focuses on sex crimes, so Lambert will be playing an actress who accuses a reality TV producer (played by Michael McKean) of sexual assault. Hmm.. Perhaps a similar case to that of a woman suing MTV for crude behavior on the set of a reality show? TV Guide reports there is no confirmation when the episode will air, but it will happen before the season wraps for the year.
Lambert tweeted about the appearance over the weekend. "Y'all, I'm so freaking excited to be on my favorite show ever!!!" NBC recently admitted that execs are concerned over a bad fall season. Ratings were the lowest they’ve been in years, so the network is pulling in as many big name stars as possible to help boost ratings.
Country music fans can also tune into The Voice this season to watch Lambert appear as a guest mentor. The 28-year-old will work alongside hubby Shelton and American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, preparing Team Blake for live shows. Some may say that team has a slight advantage over some because both singers have experience with talent competitions. The Voice producers think the extra mentoring will connect more fans with the show, and help shape even better talent this year. The Voice returns on Feb. 5 after the Superbowl.
