On April 19, 2015 she swept the Academy of Country Music awards. She won Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year...along with a Milestone Award and made the Guinness Book of World Records for consecutive wins of Female Vocalist of the year, her winning streak continued for her 6th win. Yet, she is so humble and down to earth she still gets nervous speaking to crowds. Seriously? She rocked her acceptance speeches.
In 2003 Miranda placed third in Nashville Star, which was a reality singing competition. She later signed to Epic Records. For a girl who was born and bred in the state of Texas and raised by parents who were private investigators, and at times the family was living in their car, she has come a long way.
Miranda now calls Oklahoma her home base along with her hubby, Blake Shelton. Together they are the current reigning King and Queen of Country Music. June and Johnny Cash, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw at one time held this title and they wore it proudly...it is now time to pass the torch to Miranda and Blake. I believe they will also wear their title proudly. (Oops, things have changed.)
From singer, songwriter, business owner, animal activist...Miranda Lambert is a country chick of all trades. I have a feeling Miranda will continue to entertain country music fans for quite a while. Rock on, ML.
