Miranda Lambert grew up singing in Texas before catching Nashville’s attention as a teenager. But she didn’t like the pop direction they tried to push her in, so she learned guitar, began writing her own songs and self-released her self-titled debut album in 2001.

That auspicious start – taking charge of her own destiny – set the stage for what followed. Lambert’s sophomore album, and major label debut, Kerosene arrived in 2005, quickly topping Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and eventually going platinum. 

It would take one more album, 2007’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend for Lambert to earn her first Academy of Country Music Award – for Top New Female Vocalist. 

Lambert has gone on to release a number of additional solo albums, including 2020’s best-selling album Wildcard, which won the Grammy for Best Country Album. She’s also co-formed the supergroup Pistol Annies, with Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, recorded the campfire collaboration The Marfa Tapes with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall.

She even become the first female artist to open her own bar in downtown Nashville, appropriately called Casa Rosa (or Pink House).

A commercial and critical success, Lambert’s gutsy attitude comes across in her tell-it-like-it-is songwriting, which has garnered Grammys, CMA Awards for Album of the Year, and led to her being named Female Vocalist of the Year at the ACM Awards more times than any other female artist.
