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.
The 56th Annual Awards are set to take place November 9th in Nashville, Tennessee.
She'll join previously announced headliner Morgan Wallen at the festival from June 1st - 4th 2023 at Panama City Beach

The Marfa Tapes is the rawest – and some might say most real - recording you’ll get from this trio - and it's all the better for it. Its unembellished sound and scruffy methodology is a quality we don’t have enough of in today’s often excessively tweaked and overly polished fare.
Lambert took to social media today to announce that she’s been working on a project called ‘The Marfa Tape’ with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall.
They have announced a list of stellar artists set to record new appearances, including a number of 2021 Grammy Nominees.
