Miranda Lambert made her big break through into country music as a finalist on the show Nashville Star back in 2003. Although she finished third on the show, she signed with Epic Records and released her debut album, Kerosene, in 2005. The record went platinum and had a whopping four singles on Billboard’s Top 40 Hot Country Hits. Ultimately, the Nashville division of Epic Records shut down, but Miranda Lambert was transferred over to Columbia Records where she has prospered ever since.
Miranda Lambert‘s sophomore effort, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, was released in 2007 and enjoyed similar success to her first album. Although Miranda Lambert didn’t have as many singles reach the Top 40, three of the songs off of the album still made it. In fact, her song “Gunpowder & Lead” was her first Top 10 single. However, neither of her first two albums have achieved nearly the success as her third album (released in 2009), Revolution, has. Revolution has had two number one singles and Miranda Lambert has won countless awards for the album from the Grammy’s, Academy of Country Music, and Country Music Association.
On November 1st, 2011 Miranda Lambert will release her fourth studio album, Four the Record. Fans should expect nothing less than more of the spirited and powerful vocals expressed in the three records prior. With a mix of ballads and up-beat country blasts about cheating and partying around the town, Four the Record brings the heat. Check out the track list below!
