It's a sub-freezing February afternoon in Nashville and Miranda Lambert has just slipped into a $9,000 strapless silk chiffon gown. In a minute, she'll brave the cold to step outside in front of a waiting camera, but at the moment, she's poking fun at the decadence of couture: "This is what famous people do – lounge around in gowns all day!" she jokes.

Since accepting her English boyfriend's proposal in mid-April during a romantic getaway to Key West, Fla., Sarah Darling has been bursting with happiness – and a sweet secret.
The country singer and graphic designer James Muriel actually went directly from "Will you?" and "Yes!" to "I do" in an intimate ceremony on the beach that very weekend, she reveals to PEOPLE Country exclusively.
"We had dated long-distance for more than a year, so when he moved to Nashville we knew right away we wanted to be together as husband and wife," she explains.

As one half of Sugarland, Georgia native Jennifer Nettles never shied away from mixing it up musically, blending classic country with pop and rock into the country duo's sound – and even daring to drop a reggae rap in their platinum-selling "Stuck Like Glue." Now with a solo debut on the horizon (her That Girl CD is due in January, while the single of the same name is currently top 40 on the country charts), the Grammy-winning singer continues to test new musical ground.
So it's no surprise that Nettles, who is hosting the Spotify CMA party Nov. 3 with PEOPLE Country, has eclectic tastes when it comes to music listening as well. But, she says, with the birth of son Magnus last December, her quiet time for discovering new music and appreciating the luxury of listening are at a premium.
