Yep, it’s true. If you were hoping this celebrity couple would hire you as their live-in laundress, your dreams have just been shattered. Blake Shelton, who is about as down-home country guy as they come, says he and wife Miranda Lambert will not be hiring someone anytime soon to do their dirty work — their dirty laundry, that is.

While several of the biggest 2012 ACM Awards will be doled out April 1 during the live telecast on CBS, time restrictions keep the other honorees from being awarded on-camera.

As it turns out, ‘Today’ show host Hoda Kotb is quite the country music fan. Last week, we reported that Lee Brice was scheduled to co-host ‘Today’ Tuesday, March 20 with Kotb during the fourth hour on NBC in the absence of regular co-host Kathie Lee Gifford.
