Miranda Lambert (born November 10th, 1983) is an American country music star from Longview, Texas, USA, who first gained success after becoming a finalist on the 2003 season of Nashville Star.

Lambert began her career at a young age, appearing at various talent shows in Texas, eventually acquiring a recording session in Nashville, US. She also fronted the house band of the Reo Palm Isle in her hometown of Longview for a period, the same place where Brooks & Dunn had first begun their career.

Having won the talent competition, Nashville Star, Lambert went on to sign with Epic Records, releasing her debut album “Kerosene” in 2005. The album was highly successful, debuting at number one on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, eventually gaining Platinum certification, selling over one million copies. The album produced four top 40 singles on the Billboard Country charts.

She continued the success of “Kerosene” with her second full length album, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (2007), topping the country album charts and reaching number six on the Billboard 200 charts. Her album also won album of the year at the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM). She was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for her single “Kerosene.”

Her third album, “Revolution” received critical acclaim upon its release, proving her talent as a songwriter. The album’s second single “White Liar” was a top five hit, reaching number two on the Billboard’s Hot Country chart, with a number one achieved later with her third single “The House That Built Me.” Her talents were awarded a Grammy Award in 2011, for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for the single. Two more releases maintained Lambert’s stature and respect in the world of country music, fairing well in the US charts.

Speaking of her music, Lambert said “I don’t write about angels, Jesus, happy days, kids. I grew up on drinkin’, cheatin’, love gone bad.” This describes her brand of country music well, as it is not happy-go-lucky country pop, instead it is more serious tales of hardship, performed with her powerful voice.
