Miranda Lambert threw a drink in Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger’s face

These aren’t really big name stars, but this story cracks me up. Take it with a grain of salt.

Us Weekly is reporting that country singer Blake Shelton and Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger nearly got into a fight at Miranda Lambert’s birthday party.

A battle broke out at Miranda Lambert’s 27th birthday party at Winners Bar & Grill in Nashville November 10, when the singer refused to do shots with Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, 36. “Chad kept persisting, and Miranda said no,” says the witness. “He responded she ‘didn’t have to be a bitch about it.’ Then she grabbed the shot and threw it in his face!” Soon after, Lambert’s fiance, fellow country star Blake Shelton, 34, jumped in to attack Kroeger. “But people kept Blake away,” says the insider.

[Us, print edition, November 29, 2010]

Blake’s rep denies there was a fight, poetically responding, “No fists were thrown. Blake is a peacekeeper and doesn’t start fights.”

Well, technically, the Nickelback guy started this one by acting like a drunk douche. Blake was just defending his girlfriend’s honor.

If this fight had happened, I’m not sure who would win. I’d probably give the edge to Blake, even though Chad is 6’1” and scary looking. But Blake is a whopping 6’5” and had the motivation of not wanting to get his butt kicked at his fiancee’s birthday party.

Speaking of, what was the singer of Nickelback doing at Miranda Lambert’s party anyway, besides annoying the birthday girl?

Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton are shown performing on 6/13/10 and at the CMT awards on 6/9/10. She’s also shown in the header in October, 2009. Chad Kroeger is shown on 5/19/09. Credit: WENN.com

    If this is true, good for Miranda.

  2. brin says:

    Hey Nickelback guy…don’t mess with country singers. Their twang is worse than their bite. Sorry, I need my coffee.

  3. Roma says:

    I love this!! I threw a drink on Chad Kroeger’s lap in Toronto at a club because he was a drunk douche who tried to feel me up.

    Nickleback embarrasses me that they’re Canadian.

  4. Marjalane says:

    Miranda and Blake crack me up; They’re like the modern day Tanya Tucker and Glen Campbell, country trash and proud of it!

  5. KJ says:

    Anything thrown in this guys face is a definite improvement!!

  6. Lisa Turtle says:

    Blake would win the fight because Chad was likely drunk as heck and unable to even walk straight, let alone throw punches. That Nickelback crew is highly embarassing, not just for Canada, but for human kind.

  7. Genevieve says:

    Picklesack! HAHA!

  8. Samigirl says:

    I absolutely loathe Nickleback. I think Chad Kroeger is an untalented douche bag. So I definitely hope this story is true.

  9. Rita says:


    “These aren’t really big name stars”

    Sammie, Sammie,Sammie. Stay out of Nashville and country bars. Both Blake and Miranda are huge in the biz.

    “If this fight had happened, I’m not sure who would win.” Answer: Miranda would have kick Nickleback’s ass and if her “fiance” Blake (not boy friend) had stepped in, Miranda would have kicked his ass as well, after Blake had left Mr. Nickle looking for his teeth. Just good country fun.

    You see, Miranda’s is just like the rest of us….”only prettier”. (Sammie, that’s the title of her latest No. 1 hit)

  10. irishserra says:

    Just upon reading the headline, my response is “Yaaaay!!”

  11. DelBocaVista says:

    For the longest time I believed that Nickelback was the worst band that could ever exist; then my radio barfed the noises made by Hinder and Buckcherry into my ears. Touche’ radio, touche’.

    True Story:
    A couple of years ago I attended the most hilariously WT wedding of a co-worker of my husbands. I won’t get in to ALL the embarrassing details, but there were no less than 6 Nickelback songs played at the reception. This included the “new couple” dance, the “Father-Bride” dance, and the “Groom-Mother” dance. O-M-G. They divorced just over 1 year later.

  12. Jen says:

    Love her, love Blake. HATE the suck-fest that is Nickelback.

    If she threw a drink in that d-bag’s face, that just makes me love her even more.

  13. Jane Q. Doe says:

    #9 Rita – ITA! I could see Blake stepping in only to pull his teeny but feisty fiance away. Nickleback’s lucky all she threw was a drink. 🙂

  14. Samigirl says:

    @DelBocaVista-I seriously have been saying for YEARS, the ONLY band worse than nickleback is Hinder. They win this honor because they don’t write their own stupid songs/lyrics. As much as Nickleback sucks, at the very least, they write their own sh*tty music. A cpl years ago the lead singer of Hinder was trashing bands like Death Cab, The Decemberists, ect (staples on my playlists) and saying their music sucked. I FUMED, as you could imagine.

  15. devilgirl says:

    No, Nickleback still is the worst band ever, Samigirl.

  16. baby says:

    hahaha YES!! i worked my way thru college at a coffeeshop that played the top 40 radio station for those few years when it seemed like ALL new music was nickelback (ew) and i wanted to stab my eardrums..wish i could have done it myself LOL!

  17. kelBear says:

    I love many of Nickelback’s songs but I don’t actually like them as people.

  18. Mizz Tickles says:

    Nickelback is really good music for when you have to power through on a work project – I was on a clean up after a fire and it really helped power through to get the job done.

    That said there are a lot of douche stories about Kruger out there so he must have a bit of a swelled ego. And I believe they come from surrey bc. Good on ya Roma 🙂

  19. grace says:

    Idk anything about the members of the band, so I can’t say if they are such horrible people like everybody else here makes it sound like.
    What I can say is that they are definetely not the worst band out there, there is a lot of worse things in the music industry. Seriously, people. Turn the radio on and if you don’t think that at least 50% of what you will listen is sh*** that cannot even be compared to anything else, then I cannot understand your judgement on Nb. They have a FEW decent songs at least.

  20. Samigirl says:

    Idk, devilgirl, have you ever heard “lips of an angel?” Seriously, it’s worse than “photograph.”
    I know it is hard to believe a worse song than that exists, but it does, and it was performed by Hinder. I promise!!!

    edit: My bff just threw in a trump card: Creed. She got me on that one 🙂

  21. Bodhi says:


  22. Trillion says:

    Worst. Band. Ever. Worse than Creed and even worse than Sugar Ray. Isn’t that puke stain named Fred Durst partially responsible for foisting them upon us? Yet another reason to despise him.

  23. icantbelievethis says:

    LOL, Kroeger almost got his ass kicked by a girl.

  24. jover says:

    Now if she could only throw them some talent. Yes, Grace, they aren’t the worst and everyone knows that this may be the worst decade for pop music, defined broadly; most people with taste for any genre of music have given up on the radio – after all, so-called mainstream rock stations barely play better bands like Muse, My Morning Jacket, Wolfmother, The Black Keys, so yes radio stations mostly play crap.

  25. kg says:

    he is douchey and his music is horrible

    he is also friends with tiger woods
    last year tigers first post slut scandal outing was backstage nickelback concert

  26. Statler says:

    I remember when I first heard of them- I thought their music was derivative and boring but at least they’d picked a funny name. Then I found out it was Nickel*back*. Hard to believe they’re still around. (Good to see so many despise them.)

  27. Devon says:

    Roma, I so agree! So embarrassed that they are Canadian. Even more embarrassed that one of my closest friend is from their home town and always want to hear Nickelback when he’s out at the bar. Serious face palm every time that happens. Kroeger is a loser and needs to give his hair back to the poodle he stole it from.

  28. Mika says:



  29. lola lola says:

    Nickleback singer IS a douche. I wish she threw 10 drinks at him.

  30. Jo says:

    Chad is a major douchenozzle. I’m just mad it wasn’t me. After I threw the drink in his face I would take the opportunity to tell him to stop polluting my ears with his shit ‘music’.. and I use that term loosely.

    “Kroeger is a loser and needs to give his hair back to the poodle he stole it from. ”
    LOL! Devon you hit the nail on the head with that comparison. He always reminded me of a rat.

  31. ohplease says:



  32. ziggy says:

    hmmm. blake is a good looking guy!

  33. ohplease says:

    OH and i need who these two are.

    dont believe i had the pleasure of listening to their songs before..

    that said, i give her props for having the balls to throw her drinks at whatshisface kruger

  34. redlips says:

    He deserved every drop of that drink in his face!

    Miranda honey, please hire someone to check you before you walk out the door. I want to reach thru my screen and yank that dress up! Certainly NOT the way it is suppose to fit…….hire a stylist.

  35. Audrey says:

    Chad Kroeger makes me mad! Grr. I always try to change the radio station when I hear that it is going to be one of his songs but I always end up singing along! 🙂

    Gosh, Miranda Lambert cannot dress for the life of her. She always looks trashy and stuffed a la Jessica Simpson.
    Believe me, I <3 her music and she is such a pretty girl but she needs a stylist ASAP!!

  36. original kate says:

    i don’t know nickelback but they can’t be worse than limp bizkit. love miranda, though – talented girl and i like her spunk.

  37. craigc says:

    stupid tattoo country dork!

  38. DetRiotgirl says:

    @Samigirl LOL! Creed! Ha, yeah. Creed is definitely a trump card. They’re suckage is the sort of suckfest black hole of suckery that knows no limits of suckdom. In the title of worst band ever, Creed FTW!

  39. Str8Shooter says:

    More like NICKELHACK. God, they suck so badly! I don’t even know who this girl is, but I would have PAID for the drink she threw in this no-talent douche’s face!

  40. Kim says:

    Does Miranda shop in the country trash section of Walmart or what???

  41. Jelli says:

    Chad also got a drunk driving conviction out here in vancouver area. Dick ASShat

  42. Mistral says:

    These people are all talentless losers. Why do they even warrant coverage?

    HATE Nickelback
    HATE HATE HATE country music

  43. crystal2246 says:

    BLAKE CANT FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!! he is to girly.miranda is more man then him.actually miranda is a bitch and she should own up to it not go cry to her wife blake like he could really do something. and chad didnt have to be nice at all and offer her a drink. and every since she became a little famous she has let it go to her head. her and blake cant even sing. nickelback fans beat miranda fans anyday.chad could have beat both nof them DRUNK OR NOT!!!!! if the get into it again i hope he slap her trailer trash ass back to the trailer park she came from and her wife blake to!!!!HUGE NICKELBACK FAN AND DONT CARE IF ANY OF YOU DONT LIKE IT!!TEAM CHAD!!!

  44. PennyLane says:


    And as far as country music goes, both are big names. Miranda cleaned up at the Country Music Awards this year.

  45. amber says:

    miranda isnt nothing. blake is a pussy. miranda IS a bitch and both should stop wasting there time trying to start drama with someone who has talent.

  46. Ruffian9 says:

    “Miranda Lambert threw a drink in Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger’s face”

    Well shit, who hasn’t wanted to do that?

  47. Jules says:

    I wasn’t really sure how much I liked Nickelback before I saw them in concert..sorry to break it to all of those who hate them, but there is quite a bit of real musical talent there. Maybe you hate the songs, but Chad didn’t miss a note all night. Actually quite the strong voice. I think they have some good and some ok/baddish songs. Funny someone mentioned Tiger Woods. I think they could have based some of their song lyrics on Tiger Woods’ life!

  48. Caity says:

    27th Birthday?? Riiiiiight.

  49. Wresa says:

    I had no idea who she was before this, yet suddenly I am her biggest fan!! 😛

  50. LILO-donotpassgo-donotcollect200$ says:

    who is miranda lambert?

  51. Laura says:

    For the most part I can’t stand Nickelback, but I will shamefully confess to enjoying a couple of their songs. To me they’re either kind of ok or AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL. And I will also agree that Hinder and Buckcherry are lame, and would like to also add Theory of a Deadman to that list.
    On a related note, one of my sister’s friends who likes to fancy herself a groupie likes to brag about how she ‘made out’ with Chad. I told her…’If I were you I’d keep that to myself…’

  52. wonderful says:

    Canada doesn’t have to continually state their embarrassment over Nickelback, I am pretty sure by now everyone realizes it as a given.

  53. WHO says:

    Miranda who??? If those are pics of her and her Hubby then she is going for the WT pornstar look …classy…how aweful for country music!!!!! PUKE

  54. Samigirl says:

    Apparently DelBoca has REALLY pissed off Crystal by posting all the intimate details of her wedding! How DARE you, DelBoca?!?! 😀

  55. PennyLane says:

    @ amber….you’re joking right?

  56. RB says:

    Wow I’m so glad I’m not the only one who hates nickelback and is embarrassed they’re canadian!! The way radio stations play them everywhere, even here in the states where I live, I felt like I was the only one who couldn’t stand them! #39: “but I would have PAID for the drink she threw in this no-talent douche’s face” – that comment made me laugh out loud!

  57. Jag says:

    I like Nickelback’s music, but can’t stand Kroeger. He flipped out when people were joining a Facebook group called something like: “I bet this pickle can get more friends than Nickleback.” (Spelled wrong to prevent copyright infringement.) Of course it did, and there were posts from Kroeger threatening to shut down the board. Good times.

  58. Amber says:

    no im not kidding she is so trashy and her and blake are just pissed because nickelback has sold way more albums then them and always will.

  59. Chloe says:

    You’d think someone as insanely ugly as Chad Kroeger (I really think he’s one of the ugliest men on the planet) would take it upon himself to at least be a good person or have some charm, but no. He’s just here to spread ugliness (both his music & his face) & take up space.

  60. Cletus says:

    Nickelback, Creed, and GODSMACK= Trifecta of Suck.

    They are so damn terrible.

  61. Loretta says:

    Go Miranda !!! Show em’ what little girls are made of…gun powder & lead.

  62. molly says:

    drunks are very annoying as it is and people who can’t understand no means no deserve a drink in their face whether it was a singer from nb or the frickin president of the united states… suddenly she’s white trash and people are commenting on her style.. yeah, i bet you really know her personally enough to have evidence of that. for real, it has nothing to do with the storyline people.

  63. Ashley says:

    I LOVE Miranda Lambert and I love Blake Shelton. And those of you who dont know who they are, what gives you that right to bash and trash them. As far as your comments, thats really mature! Im sure most of you people that commented and dogged Blake and Miranda are what?? Well known to everyone??? Miranda has class and so does blake, and I am a person that knows them! Chad, he shouldnt start shit at someone ELSE’S birthday party!!! So way to go Blake and Miranda!

  64. Christina says:

    I LOVE Miranda Lambert. I can’t believe people would call her trash. She is making a good name for us women. She’s REAL and talented. Definetly my favorite female artist right now. She is such a beautiful girl. I can’t believe people think otherwise. You show him Miranda.

  65. Emma says:

    Blake would sooo win. Fricken gorgeous I tell ya! That bod of his. Mmm… Miranda is definitely lucky.. Basically hitting the jackpot.

    Go Miranda!

  66. Paul says:

    The moral of this story: DON’T mess with Texas, or Oklahoma, for that matter!

  67. Pinky says:

    Dang. That’s all that happened to him? He deserves much more than that for making the crappiest noise there is.

  68. karinetnr says:

    Hi guys,

    Chad is the best, the WINNER, after all I read hereby, I’m so amazed of such hate. “The worst band”, you cheatting.

    He has a beautiful hard voice and sings better than all country singers (except frim Keith Urban and Kenny Rogers that I love so much).

    Leave him alone and mind your own business.



  69. me says:

    You all keep going on about what a “bad” “ugly” guy he is, Have you ever actually met him? Other than what you read about him im pretty sure none of you have a clue. He is a decent singer i bet most of you are saying shit because you dislike his music.

  70. Greg says:

    i doubt many of you have met her. She is very much an entitled princess bitch.

  71. Matt Carey says:

    Chad would have Broken Blakes Face
    Leave him busted open with a broken jaw & missing teeth.
    They pulled Blake back because they know Chad will hurt him & would not leave it as just a punch in the face.. Chad is psyco.

  72. brad says:

    I know the story is old, but I was at the party. There was a fight. Blake shelton wipEd the floor with chad. Literally. hit him a couple times then threw him across the dance floor. He slid across the dance floor on is back. It was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen.

  73. Ohio Girl says:

    I don’t know too much about Nickel Back. I like some of their music. Every Musician has their good and bad songs. I like Miranda and Blake’s music I just do not agree with how they wrecked Blake’s first marriage. Miranda is a HOME WRECKER. And Blake is a douche for letting it happen. Blake and Miranda should step up and take responsibility of their actions. They have been dating since 2005 and Blake did not file for divorce until 2006. Who cares who can beat who up they need to grow up.

  74. pat says:

    Ohio Girl: Ask his ex if Miranda Lambert was the first one he was after. Oh yes, you without a doubt read he had a terrible time making a decision whether to divorce or not to divorce. This guy is Tall Country… that is what they now call the hunk, is’nt it. He did and said everything possible to keep what little career he had.How could his wife help him? Do you really think Miranda roped this 6ft/5 guy and took him away from his wife. Did he not have to file for divorce. Over a year after she and her Mother were running his charity right there in Oklahoma with big smiles on thier face. Being you know them so well, you had to have been there.Why be down on Miranda, she has been the one to pay the price.She did no more than these other young girls would.Fell for his flirt. Miranda does’nt need to step up to the plate for you or anyone else as far as that goes.I have not idea your age, but one day you will surely run onto one of these Blake Sheltons. He is just one of many out here and a bunch of them would love to run onto one of these talented and beautiful young MIRANDA LAMBERTs.

  75. John says:

    Miranda is a trailer trash country slut and her queer fiancé like to suck penis. He has done male on male scenes that r posted on the Internet. U people have no judge in character. Get some knowledge before u open ur f#*@ hole.

  76. Brenen says:

    From reading these articles, here’s what I’ve found out….Miranda is a homewrecker, and Blake is an alcoholic. You fans of these people probably don’t know much about Chad Kroeger. That’s fine. Take ten minutes of your time to watch some of his inverviews on YouTube. He’s actually a very genuine, down-to-earth guy, and it’s easy to dimiss that since there’s a widespread dislike for his band’s music. It didn’t seem like Chad was trying to cause any trouble. He didn’t grab Miranda or anything. He just wanted to have some fun, and Miranda and Blake overreacted.

  77. Camden says:

    Let’s put the Nickelback hate aside for one minute. Chad just wanted to buy her a shot for her birthday. That’s kind of a b-tch thing to do to turn that down. He was trying to be nice and wanted to have some fun, like all of us. If Miranda truly wanted to make Chad look like the bad guy, she should have just walked away, but instead chose the lowlife, trashy, redneck response. And Chad didn’t even try to stoop to that level. Props to Chad.
