Revolution continues for Miranda Lambert
Monday, January 31, 2011
– The revolution must go on for Miranda Lambert as she announced more concerts starting in late February and continuing into late March with Justin Moore and Josh Kelley.
Lambert also will join Alan Jackson for his first Australian tour, which sold out in minutes.
"Miranda and I met and became buddies on Brad Paisley's American Saturday Night tour, although, I've been a fan of her music for a while," said Moore. "I am very excited to get to tour together again, and I couldn't be happier for her and her success over the past year. It's gonna be a blast."
"I can't wait to tour again with Miranda this spring to continue the Revolution, we had so much fun together in fall," said Kelley. "Getting to introduce my new songs to her audience was exhilarating, and now that my album 'Georgia Clay' is being released on
March 22, fans will be able to take the music home with them."

CD reviews for Miranda Lambert
Cynics might think that Miranda Lambert is presumptuous in entitling her fifth disc "Platinum" and, in effect, assuming she'll get her plaque for selling 1 million units. 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 »»»
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).

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 »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Gayle, Orlando provide good old-fashioned entertainment
Although this pairing of country star Crystal Gayle and Tony Orlando may have - on the surface - appeared to be an odd one, tonight's audience demonstratively loved each performer equally. It was an evening of memorable songs, fun and funny stories and just good old-fashioned entertainment.
Gayle opened the show with a strong set of country... »»»
Concert Review: With or without band, Isbell satisfies
Usually, when an artist performs without his regular backing band, it becomes about mathematics of subtraction. That artist is armed with far fewer artistic weapons at his/her disposal, after all. In Jason Isbell's case, though, when he performed with just his wife and fiddler Amanda Shires, it was more about substitution than subtraction.... »»»
