Miranda Lambert is inspired by all different kinds of women.
The Somethin' Bad singer is becoming one of the most powerful women in country music, but when to her own role models Lambert doesn't just look to one or two people.
"There have been lots of people I've looked to for that," the singer told Gibson on Jan. 4 when discussing how she pushes her own boundaries. "It's sort of like you take little parts from them and try to learn and apply them to your own life. One strong female artist I look up to is Beyonce. She handles herself well and has such class."
When it comes to "building an empire" Lambert said she's always looked to stars like Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn.
While Lambert discussed the woman that inspire her, her husband and fellow country artist Blake Shelton said goodbye to a performer he'd always looked up to.
Country star Little Jimmy Dickens, 94, passed away on Jan. 2 and as friends and family honored him this week, Shelton released a statement on Twitter remembering how the singer always made others happy.
The man never stopped entertaining... Even when he wasn't trying he made everybody smile. He'll truly be missed. #HonoringLittleJimmy

Dickens had been an inspiration to many and was the oldest member of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
Shelton and Lambert are spending a few more days together before heading off in separate directions. Lambert begins her 2015 Certified Platinum Tour on Jan. 15.
