There are moments when an artist reaches legendary status, when all of their hit records and memorable performances combine and they turn a corner from just another singer to an all-out legend.
This also happens when you achieve worldwide success.
Miranda Lambert’s future legendary status is getting a shot in the arm right now, as the country star is currently overseas and killing audiences with her talents on her “Highway Vagabond Tour.” On August 17, she amazed fans in England with her 2013 hit “Mama’s Broken Heart” at the first show of her overseas run, which will continue on in England and then Ireland through August 27. Miranda and her band will then begin a Canadian leg of shows starting on September 29.
During the same U.K. show, she shared an onslaught of hits, including “Gunpowder and Lead,” “Automatic,” “White Liar” and “The House that Built Me,” along with a heartbreakingly good cover of U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”
It’s been a great week for Miranda, who also received the news that her song “Vice” was certified Platinum by the RIAA, continuing on quite a streak of hits from her “The Weight of These Wings” album that was released last November.
