Miranda Lambert Shares What’s on Her iPod
It's easy to guess what artists country music fans are listening to on their MP3 players -- we love Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, and of course Miranda Lambert, to name a few. But have you ever wondered what the 'Baggage Claim' singer listens to on her own iPod? Entertainment Weekly caught up with Lambert just last week, and she revealed which artists tickle her fancy.
"I’m obsessed with Beyonce," Mrs. Shelton admits, adding that she's actually a Beyonce superfan who buys every album. "I have Destiny’s Child, I’ve seen her four times in concert, so I’m just a giant fan. I actually got to meet her briefly at the American Airlines center last year. I just love her, and I will always buy every record she makes."
Lambert also listens to singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile (who sang at her wedding) regularly, and lists fellow female starlets Adele and Ashton Shepherd as a few of her other favorites. "I just love how much soul she has," Lambert says of Adele, who, coincidentally, has a country album in the works. "She sings with all of herself, and whenever you listen, it just feels like she’s telling a story and you’re believing every word of it. I like sassy songs, as you know—it’s got some sex appeal to it, but it’s also just sassy."
But perhaps the most shocking revelation from Lambert's iPod is that she spins a bit or her own music -- as well as her husband Blake Shelton's latest CD. "Blake is such a great singer, and we have such different tastes in music, but ‘Honey Bee’ is such a feel-good song. It makes you just want to listen to it over and over," she says.
Lambert is especially proud of her latest all-girl venture, Pistol Annies, and their new album 'Hell on Heels,' which dropped on August 23 and went straight to the top of the iTunes chart. "It’s been so much fun to write with those girls and put this project together, and have the girls on the road with me. It’s a real thing. It’s the opposite of contrived," the 'White Liar' hitmaker stresses. "The whole record, 'Hell on Heels,' takes you back like 30 years. If you put it in, you’re going to think you stepped back in time."
As for the singer's solo career, her new album 'Four the Record' impacts on November 1.
