Biography

Miranda Lambert (born November 10, 1983 in Longview, Texas) is a Grammy-nominated country singer/songwriter who gained fame as a finalist on the 2003 season of USA Network talent competition Nashville Star. Her first album, Kerosene, debuted at number one on the country charts in March 2005 and has since gone platinum. Her second album, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, was released on May 1, 2007.

Lambert joined a select group of artists when her first album, Kerosene, debuted at number one on the country charts. Lambert wrote or co-wrote 11 of the 12 tracks on the album, which met with wide critical acclaim. Following the success of her platinum selling debut album, Lambert spent much of late 2005 and early 2006 as the opening act for artists such as Keith Urban and George Strait. Concert reviews noted her exceptional stage presence and helped her gain exposure in the country music industry.

Lambert's career took off following an electric performance of "Kerosene" at the 2005 Country Music Association Awards in New York City. In a show that was uncharacteristically dominated by slow country ballads. Lambert brought the crowd to its feet when columns of fire leapt from the stage at the end of the song. "Kerosene" subsequently became Lambert's first top-twenty hit.

Lambert's second album, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was released on May 1, 2007. She wrote 8 of the 11 songs on the album. She tells Blender Magazine that there were ballads that she wrote from her heart. "It was scary, but I feel like my fans deserve that from me." While Miranda did not write three of the songs on her new album, she chose artists such as Carlene Carter, Patty Griffin, and Emmylou Harris, to write the other three songs.

The song "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" charted after Miranda performed the song at the CMA Awards. In a newsletter, Miranda stated that "Famous In a Small Town" will actually be the first official single from her second album only due to the fact that "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" was a complete flop.

In early 2007, Lambert opened for Toby Keith on his Big Dog Daddy Tour. Following a few months with Keith, she will be re-joining Dierks Bentley on his Live and Loud Tour. Joining them on the road, she will alternate between Eric Church and Jason Aldean. Lambert and Aldean have been on several tours together, and also have a duet together on Aldean's album Relentless. Following its release, the album debuted at number six on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling about 53,000 copies in its first week.

Nashville Scene named Kerosene one of the best albums of 2005. The album was certified Platinum by the RIAA, and as well as her label, Columbia Records.

In 2005, at the 40th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas, Miranda won the Cover Girl Fresh Face of Country Music Award. In the same year, USA Today ran an ongoing series documenting Miranda's emerging career.

Lambert was nominated for the Country Music Association's Horizon Award in 2005 and performed "Kerosene" at the CMA Awards in New York City. She was also nominated for the " award by the Academy of Country Music in 2006. Her recent accomplishments include another nomination for the Country Music Association's Horizon Award in 2006 and a nomination for Best Video for Miranda's biggest hit to date, "Kerosene".
