Miranda Lambert

Miranda Lambert is country’s reigning female vocalist of the year, as bestowed by both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music.

She’s won the prized album of the year trophy from both organizations, as well – from the ACMs for her second record, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and from the CMAs and ACMs for her third, Revolution. She received the top country female vocal performance honor at the most recent Grammy Awards for “The House That Built Me.”

And, lest all her honorifics be so high-minded, she’s been named one of People magazine’s Most Beautiful People and one of Maxim’s Hottest Women of Country.

“I’m a singer songwriter from Texas and I act like one. I’ve been playing and writing professionally since I was 17. No matter what I’m singing, I want to say something that makes people think. I want people to hear my songs and feel something.”
