Country star Miranda Lambert faces losing her boyfriend if Jessica Simpson ever moves to Tennessee - because Blake Shelton is smitten by the pop singer.
Simpson has hinted she's considering a permanent move to Nashville as she embarks on a career as a country singer - and Shelton admits he'd love for her to become a neighbour.
He says, "If I'm around Jessica Simpson, she might need some bodyguards to keep me away from her."
His comment stems from the fact Simpson employed bodyguards to look after her during a recent showcase at Nashville's Lime nightclub.
Shelton tells Life + Style magazine, "Nashville is probably not the type of town where you need bodyguards. It's a really friendly place."
