Miranda Lambert is very much a throwback to the ladies that came before her. Ladies like Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline, the kind of girls who are pretty and sweet but can pack a wallop when they want to. But we knew that about Miranda. Heck, from the first time she set foot on the CMA Awards stage she literally set the stage on fire when she played her hit “Kerosene.”
By the time she started recording her third album, “Revolution,” she was ready to open up a bit more and get a little more personal with her songs. That was a good call.
“The House That Built Me” was on that album and even though she didn’t write it, the song was an incredible peek at where Miranda came from.
This was another one of those stories where the song found a home in her. Initially, the song was pitched to her then-boyfriend Blake Shelton, but when they were listening to the demos for him, she fell in love with the song and he never thought twice.
As it turned out, everyone made the right decisions all around because on June 12, 2010, Miranda started a four-week run at the top of the charts with the song.
