Biography

On the caution-vs.-candor scale, it’s not hard to figure out where Miranda Lambert comes down. “I’m really not careful at all,” she says. “I probably should be. I pretty much don’t have anything to hide, though. I never hid anything growing up. My parents were PIs, so I really couldn’t.”

She may have become a songbird instead of snooper, ... Read more in Amazon's Miranda Lambert Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There's no sophomore slump for Miranda Lambert, who follows her chart-topping debut, Kerosene, with a knockout punch. Both the title cut and the album-opening "Gunpowder & Lead" ("what little girls are made of") show that Lambert hasn't lost her edge or her appetite for revenge. Yet the quieter "Desperation," the more tuneful and tender "Love Letters," the wistful "More Like Her," and the primally intense "Down" show her emotional range and maturity. While her songwriting remains a strength, Lambert also displays superb taste in other people's material, with "Dry Town" (by Gillian Welch), "Getting Ready" (a new song from Patty Griffin), and "Easy from Now On" (with the lyric that provided the title to Emmylou Harris's classic Quarter Moon in a Ten-Cent Town) reinforcing the musical quality. There isn't a throwaway cut here. --Don McLeese

Product Description

"My songs talk about real things," says Miranda Lambert. "Things that I've been through or I've witnessed through my friends and family - even my parents' private investigation business. If I feel it, I can sing it and make anyone believe it." Big talk from a small-town Texas girl, but Lambert's got the goods to back it up. The old-school passion and power of her nearly platinum-selling 2005 debut KEROSENE took it to the top of both the country charts and the critics' polls. Now the two-time CMA Horizon Award nominee returns with Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, on which she raises the stakes both musically and emotionally.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb follow-up record May 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Miranda Lambert promises to be the next Dolly Parton. Not that Dolly Parton could ever be replaced, but the country music world is in need of a new, feisty blond who can write and sing songs that no one else wants to. Miranda Lambert, with her blunt honesty and pure talent, is capable of doing so, and doing it better than any of her peers.

CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND is appropriately named; several of these tunes sizzle with bottled up hatred, from the opener "Gunpowder & Lead" ("his fist is big but my gun's bigger/he'll find out when I pull the trigger"), to the title track, even to the whistful "More Like Her" ("You don't look much like a man from where I'm at," she sings mournfully). Other tunes are simply insights into darker lifestyles; "Down" and "Desperation" will depress the hell out of you, while "Guilty In Here" tackles a woman who uses the men in her life, and can't stop ("Is it guilty in here, or is it just me?"). Other songs are a bit more light-hearted, including Gillian Welch's whimsical "Dry Town" and Lambert's superb "Famous in a Small Town."

This album stands as one of the best yet this year. Miranda Lambert is one of the best songwriters on the scene. She wrote or co-wrote all but three of these tracks, and those she didn't write ("Dry Town" by Welch, "Getting Ready" by Patti Griffin, and "Easy From Now On" by Carlene Carter) fit right into the flow of the album. Her voice can be sharp as a razor or smooth as butter; her delivery is always top-notch. All of these songs shine with personality and grit; it takes pure talent to deliver every one of these songs, and Miranda Lambert is the best woman for the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gunpowder Lead and TALENT May 7, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Listen to the first two tracks on this cd to hear how diverse Miranda can be.

Gunpowder and Lead is leather and electric and the very next track Dry Town is blue jeans and root beer. I love it.

There aren't any throwaways on this cd.

Desperation, a Miranda composition is a fine story song.

Same with Famous In A Small Town, a Miranda/Travis Howard song.

The whole cd has a great cohesive feel to it. Though the songs are all

very different in beat and intensity. Great lyrics throughout.

For the life of me I cannot understand why Miranda is not

everywhere on country radio and why she isn't winning the awards.

She writes her own stuff, she is a musician, she has a very unique vocal style in today's country, and she is naturally gorgeous.

Don't depend on the limited view of country radio play, get this cd for yourself.

You will be doing yourself a great favor.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent follow up to Kerosene May 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Miranda Lambert's "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" is an exceptional sophomore release and refreshing change from much of the county music that is on the radio today. Most of the album has the same feel as her debut album, Kerosene and Lambert's vocal range can be described as a female Hank Williams Sr. mixed with some Loretta Lynn. Lambert's voice is very raw and has a feel of "old country," rather than the typical over-produced and mixed recordings of most of the female country artists today. As I had to do with "Kerosene," I listened to this album many times before I could appreciate all of the songs on it. And literally every song is good.

One of the reasons this album is so exceptional, is that Lambert wrote or co-wrote 8 of the 11 songs, and the only thing she does better than singing is songwriting. Perhaps this understanding of the songs is the reason that her singing comes across with so much conviction.

1. Gunpowder and Lead, 4. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend - fast-paced, and the only two songs that deviate slightly from Lambert's "old-country" feel and sound more contemporary. "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" could almost be called a sequel to "Kerosene." These will likely be the only radio-friendly singles. Given the chorus, they could just as easily have been sung by Gretchen Wilson, however a closer look at the lyrics show that despite the tempo of the music, these songs have a much more serious nature at second glance.

2. Dry Town, 3. Famous in a Small Town - A closer look at Lambert's life growing up in Longview, Texas.

5. Love Letters, 6. Desperation, 7. More Like Her - These are the only three songs written entirely by Lambert, and lyrically, are the best songs on the album.

Let it be said that Miranda Lambert is the best artist to emerge from a 'reality show' on any station in any musical format. That this "Nashville Star" graduate had a great voice is a moot point, but few could have predicted that she would make a timeless, classic album such as "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" so early in her career.

The album title is unfortunate (I would have preferred that she chose something more laidback or meaningful), but the album is most decidedly a grassroot country album that gives you true country in this era of pathetic pop-rock being passed off as country. One listen to this album and you will not be able to take Carrie Underwood or Taylor Swift seriously anymore. The 'country music' that they make is fake, at best, but granted they know how to churn out good tunes.

Miranda targets a different audience - one that knows its' music, and one that respects the great tradition of country music. Its an art that few have appreciated, and a genre that very few have been able to truly embrace. I can safely say that Dolly Parton is the only female country artist who 'knew' what country was all about, in my opinion, as she was the best storyteller of them all.

"Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" is a concept album about a relationship that dies. Every track tells a story that neatly segues into the next song and message. While Miranda is great with some killer tunes, her voice is the most appealing instrument here - her pitch and vocal control is simply amazing, and she has by FAR the most unique voice in country music right now - you can't confuse her with anyone else. And what a superb Southern accent! Magnetic, is what I call her.
