Miranda Lambert can no longer get lost in the crowd.

All kinds of changes have come for country music's rising star in the last year - No. 1 songs, six Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music wins, Grammy nominations and performances, and her engagement to Blake Shelton. Oh, and she cannot go shopping anymore.

"Blake and I both realized, we went Christmas shopping and we can't ever do that again," Lambert, 27, said in an interview with The Associated Press last week before a party to celebrate her recent success. "It's almost how you can see yourself on TV and you can win awards and you can hear about all the great accolades you're getting, but then it doesn't really come into your normal everyday life until you're somewhere like (the store) Academy and a hundred people all the sudden are crowded around you," she said.
