Miranda Lambert is an American country music artist out of Lindale, Texas.

Her debut album on that label, Kerosene, would go on to reach platinum in the United States, propelling her straight to stardom.
It was that sudden rise to fame that anchored Lambert's career and led her to recognition by institutions like the Grammy's, the Academy of Country Music, and the Country Music Association. A mainstay in the Awards shows, her albums frequently go platinum on the sales charts, and she sells out her tours regularly.
