Country star Miranda Lambert has a lot to celebrate.
The 28-year-old Texas native is in the middle of her mega-successful On Fire tour, she won both Female Vocalist and Album of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards, and she and husband Blake Shelton recently celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary.
Lambert, 28, talked to PARADE about girl power in country music, settling into married life, and sharing success with her talented spouse.
On being a woman in country music.
“Right now it seems like the girls are drawing more attention to country music. The tides are turning a bit. We are popular music now. Every other genre is starting to come over to our genre now because it’s the cool one! I think the females are leading that, and I have to give a lot of that credit to Taylor Swift for having crossover fans come our way.”
On being a role model to her young fans.
“It’s absolutely important to me. The girls who come to the show are really proud to be women and proud to be strong.”
