NASHVILLE, TN — Her albums all debuted at #1, have been certified Platinum and Gold, she’s won ACM Awards and been nominated for CMA and Grammys, and now, singer songwriter Miranda Lambert can add a # 1 single to her resume with “White Liar,” one of 11 songs she wrote or co-wrote on her current album, Revolution.
With songs like, “Gunpowder & Lead, “Famous In A Small Town” and “Kerosene,” Lambert’s songs have already become part of the fabric of country music. Bob Kingsley, the authoritative voice and Country Music DJ and Radio Hall of Famer sums up Lambert’s talent with, “Miranda Lambert is one of the most complete artists of her generation. She has proven herself to be one of our best singers and entertainers, but it is as a songwriter that she is moving into elite territory. She is on record as being an admirer of Haggard, and there is nothing idle about the claim. Like Merle, she knows the ways of the adult human heart, and with each album she is growing in her ability to express them. With Revolution, Miranda brings the spirit of her musical idols to bear on state-of-the-art country. Both her listeners and the future of the genre are in good hands.”
Lambert shared the big news on Twitter with a photo of champagne and cigars writing, “Celebrating Number 1! First class all the way!” She can continue her celebration while at the upcoming Grammy Awards where she will be presenting and is nominated for Best Female Country Performance for “Dead Flowers.” In February, Lambert will perform “White Liar” on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
With Revolution, Lambert received rare perfect reviews from countless publications including 4 stars from Rolling Stone and USA Today, an ‘A’ from Entertainment Weekly and exuberant praise from SPIN, NY Times, Washington Post and more. Many claimed Revolution the “Best Album of the Year” in any genre. In 2008, she won the coveted ACM Album of the Year and in 2007, ACM’s Best New Female Award. She is currently touring with Brad Paisley on his “American Saturday Night” Tour.

Miranda Lambert is giving fans who are already out enjoying a good time the chance to have even more fun, by winning a trip to see her live in concert with Brad Paisley.
And it’s as easy as selecting a song via touch screen on a TouchTunes digital jukebox in participating bars and restaurants at some 40,000 locations across the country. TouchTunes is the largest interactive in-venue entertainment network in North America, with a library catalog of some three million tracks.
“I love the idea of reaching my fans when they’re out on the town having a good time,” says Miranda. “TouchTunes is revolutionizing the way people discover and listen to new music.”
And you don’t even have to download a Miranda song to enter the contest, although according to TouchTunes, the fiesty Oklahoma beauty consistently tops their charts, week after week.
Fans can also enter via Facebook. The Miranda Lambert Join the Revolution Sweepstakes ends January 26.
Miranda’s music is certainly touching Grammy voters. She’s nominated for Best Female Country Performance for ‘Dead Flowers.’ It’s her third Grammy nomination.
Hey guys! We have a new gallery layout! I got it awhile ago, but was having computer problems and couldn’t upload it. Kim over at rocktheart.net made it for us. Huge thanks to her! I know there haven’t been many updates in a while, but that will change soon. Until then go check out the new layout, by clicking HERE!
Kelly Clarkson recently covered Miranda’s song House That Built Me at a recent V.I.P. show before a concert. This is seriously a must listen for any Miranda/Kelly fan. Kelly did an amazing job! The only thing better than this would be Miranda and Kelly singing this together!
Merry Christmas! I hope all of you have an amazing and safe holiday season! To make your season a little brighter I uploaded tons of pictures of Miranda to the gallery, some are new, some albums were updated with new pictures, or replaced with a higher quality, enjoy!
