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

Serious artists don't usually get discovered via TV talent shows, but this 21-year-old former Nashville Star finalist has become an important songwriter and vocalist with her debut album, Kerosene, which immediately sprang to the top of the country charts. Overall, it's a set of amiable country pop, but the title track and "What About Georgia?," which open the disc, are rock songs at heart--driven by a hard-smacked snare drum and layers of guitar. But what's really at the core of these excellent performances is Lambert's romantic lyrics and versatile singing. When she's playing the angry lover in "Kerosene," she's loaded with punky attitude. When she's brokenhearted and moving on in "New Strings," her soft, delicate tones and gentle phrasing perfectly capture a rich blend of sadness and hope. There's even a bit of Dolly Parton's sweet vibrato and rustic charm in "Me and Charlie Talking," a nostalgic contemplation on love and life's simple virtues. Lambert authored or co-penned 11 of Kerosene's dozen tunes, but what she's really written is the first chapter in what may be a long, impressive career. --Ted Drozdowski

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal New Artist March 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Miranda Lambert is the most unique new artist of any genre I've heard in a long time. Fantastic original songwriting with gripping, thought-provoking lyrics. Don't be put off by her cutesy-blond appearance-- this girl is the real, nitty gritty thing. I'm not a die-hard country fan, I'm a Yankee from Upstate NY and I like music for whatever it is-- if it's good, it's good. And I'm totally hooked on this CD. The songs get better each time I listen to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great album from a gifted singer/songwriter! December 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Few artists on the Texas country scene have enough commercial appeal to make national playlists. Miranda Lambert is an exception to the rule; the amazing thing is, she does it without sacrificing who she is. There aren't any huge radio hits on this album, I don't think--time may prove me wrong, and let's hope it does--and the fact that the album debuted at number one is attributable to Lambert's "Nashville Star" exposure...but none of that detracts from the quality of this fine, charged, and truly enjoyable album.

I won't go song-for-song--don't wanna ruin any surprises for ya. You've heard the feisty "Kerosene," the breezy "Me and Charlie Talking," and the passionate "Bring Me Down." The rest of the album revovles around these sentiments, sometimes with more acoustic arrangements, sometimes with screaming electric guitars and pounding drums. The songs themselves are as inspired as the arrangements/performances...everywhere you look, there is a clever turn of a phrase, or an undeniably catchy hook (my favorites remain "If you're the death of me darlin, I wanna die" and, of course, "There ain't a rule that ain't worth breakin").

What sets Lambert apart from her peers is not her national media exposure on "Nashville Star" (I didn't watch it, but I believe she was on the first season; if I'm wrong, sorry), but her gifted songwriting abilities. She wrote or co-wrote every track but one; all the better, because all of these songs are true gems. With her songwriting abilities, her vocal prowess, and her feisty attitude, one cannot help but compare Lambert to Dolly Parton (minus a couple of, um, physical attributes). Do you think this comparison is far-fetched? Listen to KEROSENE, then see if you can disagree with me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stunning Debut From A Past (And Future!) STAR!! June 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Sitting around with a couple of friends two years ago, watching the finale of the first season of Nashville Star, I made a prediction....even if she didn't win, Sony would sign Miranda Lambert. There was no way they would pass up the chance to nurture someone so talented at such a young age - she was just too good an investment! Now, two years down the road, here we are with Lambert's debut disc KEROSENE....on Epic/Sony! And what a debut it is! Upon first listen, you might mistake it for the third or fourth release from someone in their thirties, versus the first release of an artist still in their early twenties. Things kick off with the percolating alt-country title track, sort of the female version of a Steve Earle rocker. With it's chiming guitars, pounding percussion, harmonica riffs and snarled "Ha!", this track could very well be the feisty musical younger sister of Earle's "I Feel Alright" (I particularly love the line "Dirty hands ain't made for shaking"). An awesome way to kick off the album! Things continue nicely with the chugging "What About Georgia?" With it's gutsy lead vocal and perfect arrangement (nice interplay between guitar and banjo!), this smart song about growing up, owning up to your mistakes and learning to put the past behind you is intelligent, artistic and fun, all at the same time. Another winner! Things are cranked down a notch or ten with the aching "Greyhound Bound For Nowhere." It's rare when someone as young as Lambert can convey the resignation and hurt that permeates this song (the fact that she's been doing it for a number of years probably helps!), but that's just strong testament to her talent. This tale of a love triangle that just can't end well is anchored by some gorgeous guitar work - both acoustic and electric - as well as a plaintive lead vocal. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars On Fire January 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Miranda Lambert has sure come a long way since her 3rd place finish on Nashville Star. This album is rockin' and on fire all the way. If you want a good country album with some soulfull lyrics, this is the CD for you. Miranda also wrote or cowrote almost every song on the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars A stunning debut January 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If 'Kerosene' is any indication, we will be hearing Miranda Lambert's name for a long time to come. The songs are all strong, Lambert's songwriting ability at this stage of the game speaks of unlimited potential. The title cut is pure fun and energy, 'I Wanna Die' is a playful, sultry bass guitar driven romp. 'I Can't Be Bothered' and 'Me and Charlie Talking' are pure unabated country -- not the Adult Contemporary drivel that clogs mainstream country radio these days. Her ballads are very appealing as well, including 'Greyhound Bound For Nowhere' with the poignant lyric "She loves you and you need me, but there's some things we can't share".
One of the things that surprised me the most about this album are the excellent arrangements and musicianship. Often, especially for female country artists, the music is unimaginative, purposely pushed to the background to highlight the vocalist's talent. That is not the case here, each song is crafted with care, such as the excellent percussion effect on 'Me and Charlie', and the guitar swells on 'Greyhound'. Lambert's backing group is allowed to breathe and demonstrate their substantial skills. I definitely recommend this album to anyone who loves authentic country or Texas music.
