Miranda Lambert didn't exactly love Ashton Kutcher's get-up at this year's Academy of Country Music Awards.

Was Ashton Kutcher making fun of country or is it just me? Watching it back now and I'm kinda wondering? the beloved country star asked about Kutcher presenting an award at the event, while donning a giant cowboy hat and belt buckle.

But whatever tension may have existed between the stars is now gone, as Lambert Tweeted the following photo of herself and the Two and a Half Men star at a pre-Kentucky Derby charity event Saturday night:

"Here it is y'all. He is sweet and lives country music! For real!" Miranda wrote along with the image.

It's nice to see this pair getting along. As for Lambert and Chris Brown? We probably shouldn't hold our breath for a similar type of detente.

Note to future celebrities asked to present at an awards ceremony: do not make fun of the stars and the industry honored at said ceremony.

This may seem like common sense to most, but not to someone who needs to hire a management team to oversee his Tweets. Yes, we're looking at you, Ashton Kutcher.

For some reason, the actor took to the stage at Sunday's Academy of Country Music Awards and handed out the Female Vocalist of the Year trophy to Miranda Lambert… while donning an oversized cowboy hat and painfully singing a few bars of George Strait's "I Cross My Heart."

"Was Ashton Kutcher making fun of country or is it just me? Watching it back now and I'm kinda wondering?" Lambert Tweeted last night in response to Kutcher's shenanigans, while singer Justin Moore didn't have to wonder:

"Seen Ashton kutcher at the acms tonight. What a douche! I don't care for people making a mockery of the way country artists' dress."

Sources also tell Us Weekly that Kutcher was rude backstage and at the afterparty, continuing to wear his silly garb and wandering around with a "with a massive posse." Clearly, no one in that posse has actually watched Two and a Half Men.

Miranda Lambert was an outspoken critic of last Sunday's Chris Brown Grammy lovefest, ripping CBS and the music extravaganza for Brown's prominent role.

She's still not over it, calling out the R&B star in concert this week.

Country star Lambert wondered aloud on Twitter why the convicted felon was featured on not one but two performances during the Grammy Awards.

"Chris Brown twice? I don’t get it. He beat on a girl," Miranda tweeted, adding "He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put back in his place."

"Gunpowder and Lead" is her song about a woman preparing to kill her abusive husband. She performed it in concert Thursday - with a message for Brown.

Before singing, Lambert pulled a poster out of the audience reading "Take Notes Chris Brown." "Get a good picture now, put it on Twitter," she said.

"I’ve been in a world of hurt with Chris Brown fans ... but see, I have to speak my mind because where I come from beating up on a woman is never okay.”

As she sang, Lambert added "So that's why my daddy taught me early on in life how to use a shotgun." The Amherst, Mass., crowd went wild:

Brown has come under heavy criticism for his response to the "haters" as much as for the infamous 2009 incident in what has become a never-ending story.

Should people just get over it and move on? Or is Miranda right in standing up against abusive men, and the Grammys? Choose a side in this feud:

Chris Brown managed to stir up some controversy once again at the 2012 Grammy Awards ... even if all the singer did was show up, perform and win.

Some stars, including Miranda Lambert, wondered why the Best R&B Album winner / convicted felon was featured on not one but two performances.

On Monday, the country superstar tweeted "Chris Brown twice? I don't get it. He beat on a girl ... Not cool that we act like that didn't happen."

"He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put in his place. Not at the Grammys." That's a reference to Lambert's 2007 hit "Gunpowder and Lead."

The lyrics to that song describe a woman preparing to kill her abusive husband when he gets out of jail. "His fist is big but my gun's bigger," she sings.

Lambert isn't the only celeb who questioned Brown's Grammy presence. "Chris Brown ... (bites tongue) have we forgiven him?" Michelle Branch asked.

Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet posted, after watching Brown's Grammy performance, "Are Chris Brown's mom and dad CBS and Grammy Brown?"

"Looks like all is forgiven (with) Chris Brown," Sherri Shepherd tweeted. "That's all I'll say." As of right now, Chris has not responded to these Tweets.

"Team Breezy we have come such along way and I'm so appreciative of you guys!!!! No matter what anyone says.... WE MADE IT!!" was all he wrote.

Chris infamously assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of the 2009 Grammys, an incident some feel should have kept him from this year's show.

Your take: Did the Grammys show Chris too much love?

It didn't get the attention of Kelly Clarkson's national anthem or Madonna's halftime show (both great), but Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton performed a beautiful rendition of "America the Beautiful" at Super Bowl XLVI last night.

The married country stars did justice to the classic, often overshadowed by "The Star Spangled Banner" and "God Bless America," but a wonderful tribute to our nation.

Watch their duet below:

After the Giants pulled off an insane comeback, Blake Shelton ran it back as one of the coaches/judges on NBC's hit singing competition.

They didn't all appear on stage, but some of country's biggest names picked up CMT Music Awards last night.

During a ceremony hosted by Kid Rock, newlyweds Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton both earned a pair of trophies, while Taylor Swift was honored for Video of the Year for "Mine."

Before Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert got married last weekend, the bride didn't have to look far to select the perfect dress for the perfect day.

The 27-year-old "House That Built Me" singer exchanged her vows in the same simple ivory wedding gown her mother wore over three decades ago.

Here's Miranda Lambert's wedding dress, or the dress formerly known as Miranda Lambert's mother's wedding dress, on the new cover of Us ...

"My parents have been married for 33 years, so this dress is already a good-luck charm," says the bride, who let her Southern roots influence her footwear:

Custom-made Casadei cowboy boots!

Shelton, a country star himself and now a judge on The Voice, may not care about weddings, but still choked back tears as Lambert's dad gave her away.

"I couldn't get over how beautiful she was," he said, and the feelings of joy were certainly reciprocated. "I'm married to my best friend!" Lambert said.

Congratulations again to the happy couple!

Country stars Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton married last night, swapping vows in her home state of Texas. The singers have been together for five years.

The bride, who wore her mother's wedding dress, walked down the aisle in front of a whopping 550 wedding attendees, including close pal Reba McEntire.

Blake's co-star on The Voice, Cee Lo Green, was on hand, as were Martina McBride, Dierks Bentley and country star Neal McCoy, who played the reception.

A reception at which the guests were, as promised, served venison.

Blake's stoked to be with Miranda for life. But as for the wedding ...

"Here's the thing ... I am thrilled to be married to Miranda Lambert forever, but I don't give a crap about weddings," he told The Country Vibe this month.

"This is a big deal to her, and I'm excited for her, but I don't have a lot of input. Every wedding I've ever gone to, I've fallen asleep or been so miserable I had my iPod in and nobody knew, or I was playing Angry Birds on my phone."

"Even if it's your wedding, if you're a guy, it's boring. So, I'm ready for the ceremony, because after that, the reception is going to be a huge party."

"That's what I'm really looking forward to."

We're sure he came around a little on the big day ... well, maybe. Either way, here's hoping the party rocked and wishing the couple a lifetime of happiness.
