Miranda Lambert is known as a Grammy Award-winning country music star and singer-songwriter. She is most famous for 2005 debut album, Kerosene, which went platinum in the music sales charts. Miranda Lambert was born on November 10, 1983, in Longview, Texas. She experienced childhood in Lindale, a community where her folks ran a private detective office. Her father was also a guitarist and songwriter and she grew up tuning in to such country music greats like Merle Haggard and Guy Clark.
At 10 years old, Lambert entered her first country music talent show. Her growing career got a lift from performing on Johnnie High's Country Music Revue, a weekly theatrical presentation in Arlington, Texas. This program helped dispatch the careers of a few other famous country music stars, including LeAnn Rimes and Lee Ann Womack. When she was in her 20s, Miranda Lambert started her trajectory as one of country music's fastest rising stars.
Lambert’s family financed her first music recording in 2001. Lambert later turned into a promising contestant on Nashville Star. She completed the show as the second runner up, yet was still offered a contract agreement with Sony Music because of her outstanding performances. Her debut album, Kerosene went platinum in 2005.
The album was a hit with both fans and critics. Kerosene earned a few positive reviews from an assortment of sources, from Rolling Stone to the New Yorker magazine. Lambert earned a few honor nominations from the Academy of Country Music, including for best new female vocalist. The next year, she won the ACM Award and proved that she was here to stay as a star in the country music genre.
Lambert got married to Blake Shelton in May 2011. They wound up one of country music's most well-known power couples. All through their marriage, the couple avoided relentless bits of gossip about problems in their relationship but in the end, it became too much for them to handle.
Lambert and Shelton reported they were getting separated following four years of marriage in July 2015. In a joint statement, the divorced couple explained their decision to their fans and the public, "This is not the future we envisioned. And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter."
