All eyes are on country music hottie Miranda Lambert as she comes into her own as country music’s next big superstar woman. Lambert has had astounding success lately with accolades for her song writing (Over You won her a song of the year honor) and Female Artist of the year wins.
How will Lambert top such success? She also has to stand beside the jaw dropping mass media success of her husband Blake Shelton who is enjoying unprecedented fame for a country star.
Lambert was born in Longview Texas (born Miranda Leigh Lambert November 10th 1983) to a musical mom and dad. Dad at least as her father Rick Lambert wrote and performed country music.
Lambert, like former tour mate Chris Young, got one of her big breaks on the now defunked TV talent show Nashville star where she ended up coming in third (Buddy Jewell became the breakout star of her season). To this day she aligns with music competition show contestants as a knowing mother figure having “been through it.”
Still her radio success has been, until recent years, slow and hard fought. Her early singles like Kerosene and Me and Charlie Talking got limited airplay (although may are revisiting Kerosene). All that changed after a few big songs like Gunpowder and Lead and more recently with The House That Built Me, White Liar, Baggage Claim and the award winning Over You (gut wrenchingly written with and about Blake Shelton’s deceased brother). She has even launched a new female vocal group and album called the Pistol Annies to strong interest.
With the recent major awards success and A List Hollywood status her house hold has just acquired thanks to Network Television attention there’s no telling where Miranda Lambert’s road will travel next. More television, another headlining tour, and perhaps a late 2013 album may be in the works. There’s will be more tweeting for sure. Follow her tweets @mirandalambert.
