Lambert becomes Country Hall artist in residence

Tuesday, July 10, 2018 – Miranda Lambert will be the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's 15th artist-in residence, performing two one-of-a-kind shows at the museum on Sept. 19 and 26.

"We're talking about someone who has been the CMA's top female vocalist a record seven times, selling millions of albums and scoring hit after hit while retaining absolute artistic conviction and credibility. She writes her heart and sings her truth, and her truth resonates," said museum CEO Kyle Young. "We are honored that she is this museum's 15th artist-in-residence, the latest in a line of greats that includes some of Miranda's own musical heroes, like Guy Clark, Tom T. Hall, Kris Kristofferson, and Buddy Miller."

"The history that the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum holds is so important," said Lambert. "It's truly an honor to be named artist-in-residence for the museum. I'm thankful for this place, where our music can continue to be cherished, and I'm thrilled to be among the esteemed artists who have been honored by this designation."

Both shows will begin at 8 p.m. with tickets on sale on Friday. Lambert's fan club members, Ran Fans, will have access to an exclusive pre-sale on Wed., July 11 at 11 a.m. eastern.

Established in 2003, the artist-in-residence series honors musicians who have contributed a significant body of work to American popular music. The artist-in-residence is invited to use the museum's performance venues to create unique musical experiences. Lambert joins a prestigious group of past honorees that includes Cowboy Jack Clement, Earl Scruggs, Jerry Douglas, Vince Gill, Connie Smith, Kenny Rogers, Ricky Skaggs, Alan Jackson, Rosanne Cash and 2017 artist-in-residence Jason Isbell.

But Lambert says that isn't the case, but more a matter of style, looks and feel. Lambert also wrote and discovered a lot of excellent songs that fit her quite well in an album in which she exposes her inner self as she matures. That may never more apparent than in the country rocker Lambert wrote ...
CD review - Revolution Every once in a while an album comes along that restores your faith in mainstream country music. Miranda Lambert's "Revolution" is just such a recording. It's not revolutionary, as the title might suggest. Instead, this CD is chock full of topnotch songs that are both memorable and sincere and never sound slick or overproduced. (Come to think of it, such old school values as these may in fact be revolutionary around Nashville). Lambert vocalizes a bit like a little girl at ...
CD review - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Even though it sounds like a cliche from the big book of country songwriting, the truth is that, when the timing's right, a loser can end up being the biggest winner of all. Today's object lesson comes from Miranda Lambert and her sophomore album, the follow-up to her 2005 near-platinum debut, "Kerosene." Imagine for a moment if the then-19-year-old had actually taken the crown in 2003's Nashville Star and then been forced into the studio within weeks to be primped and ...
