Turns out that actor/singer Jamie Foxx is big fan of Miranda Lambert. The two celebs met for the first time in LA recently at Foxx’s post-Grammy party at the Conga Room. She was celebrating her first Number One single, “White Liar,” and a presenting slot on the Grammys where she was nominated for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.
When Lambert walked in the room, Foxx grabbed a microphone and rapped a few lines of, “White Liar” and said, “Everybody, Miranda Lambert’s in the house!” A fan of country music, Foxx has performed on the CMA Awards and last year, sang on the George Strait Artist of the Decade All-Star Concert.
Lambert will return to the City of Angeles this month on tour with Brad Paisley and she will also perform “White Liar” on Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.
