Miranda Lambert is a country music superstar who was born in Longview, Texas in 1983. She began pursuing her music career in the early 2000s, releasing her first self-titled album and competing on the reality show Nashville Star. After her major label debut album, Kerosene, went platinum, Lambert achieved both critical acclaim and commercial success with her follow-up albums, including Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Platinum, and The Weight of These Wings.

In addition to her musical achievements, Lambert is also known for her four-year marriage to fellow country superstar Blake Shelton. Lambert's passion for music began at a young age. She performed in talent shows and on a variety show called Johnnie High's Country Music Revue. Inspired by artists such as Emmylou Harris, Lambert taught herself to play the guitar and started writing her own songs. She formed her own band, Texas Pride, while still in high school. With the support of her family, Lambert released her first independent CD in 2001. Two years later, she auditioned for the reality show Nashville Star and impressed the judges enough to secure a major label contract with Sony Music. Despite not winning the competition, Lambert believed it was for the best as she wasn't ready to make an immediate record. Lambert's career took off with the release of her first major label album, Kerosene, in 2005.
