Miranda Lambert is one of the biggest names in country music today.

She has already won 11 ACM awards, 2 Music Row awards, 4 CMT awards, 7 CMA awards, a Grammy award, and 2 American Country awards in her career.
Lambert got her big break in 2003, when she was a finalist on the television show Nashville Star. Even though she finished third, everyone knew that she had a bright future ahead of her. All four of Lambert's albums after that topped the Country chart and climbed into the Top 20 on the Billboard 200. Lambert has had twelve Top 20 country singles, and three of those found a home at #1. Lambert latest album, Four the Record, came out in 2011 and is still producing hits. You can listen to her latest single, "Mama's Broken Heart" below.
