About Miranda Lambert

A sassy spirit and a warm, tender heart have become the foundation of Miranda Lambert’s unique musical journey. Equally adept at incendiary songs of passion and betrayal as she is at vulnerable explorations of life and love, Miranda is one of the most successful female artists in the history of country music, a worthy heiress carrying on the legacy of such outspoken legends as Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline.

Born on Nov. 10, 1983 in the East Texas town of Longview, and raised in nearby Lindale, Miranda made her professional singing debut while still in high school. At 16, she performed on the Johnnie High Country Music Revue in Arlington, Texas. A legend on the Lone Star music circuit, High had an eye for talent and is known for helping launch several careers, including that of LeAnn Rimes.

Miranda’s big break came when she competed on the national singing competition “Nashville Star.” Though she came in third on the TV show, she made an impression that helped land her a record deal with Sony Music Nashville. Her debut single, “Me and Charlie Talking,” was released in the summer of 2004. Her debut album, “Kerosene,” bowed at No. 1 on “Billboard’s” Top Country Albums chart. Miranda wrote or co-wrote 11 of the album’s 12 songs and she quickly earned a reputation as a compelling songwriter and potent live performer. Her sold-out shows are high energy events with fans singing along to every word of such hits as “Gunpowder & Lead,” “White Liar,” “Mama’s Broken Heart” “Over You,” “Automatic,” “Vice” and “Tin Man.”

Among Miranda’s most lauded hits is “The House that Built Me.” The double platinum-selling single rose to the top of the country charts in 2010 and remained at the summit for four weeks. It earned Miranda a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance, was named Song of the Year at the CMA Awards and won both Song and Single of the Year at the ACM Awards. The accompanying video was also honored with both ACM and CMA Awards.

Miranda’s lengthy list of accolades includes seven Female Vocalist of the Year awards from the CMA, as well as 2012 Song of the Year for “Over You,” a song she co-wrote with ex-husband Blake Shelton, and Single of the Year in 2014 for “Automatic.” In addition to her solo career, she also records with pals Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley in the acclaimed trio Pistol Annies, a successful side project that spawned the album “Hell on Heels.” The ladies are planning a new project in 2018.

Miranda is also known for her love of animals. She launched MuttNation Foundation, a nonprofit organization that encourages the adoption of dogs, provides fund to shelters and does other good work such as helping rescue dogs displaced after 2017’s deadly hurricanes in Texas. Miranda currently lives in the Nashville area with a posse of dogs, cats, horses and her boyfriend, acclaimed singer/songwriter Anderson East.
