Miranda Lambert Celebrates Her Third Platinum Album With Big Party
Last Friday Miranda Lambert was honored with a platinum-themed party in Nashville to celebrate the fact that all three of her albums, 'Kerosene,' 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' and 'Revolution' have now sold in excess of 1 million copies.
The country star arrived decked out in a tight-fitting, sparkled platinum dress. There was a metallic guitar decorating the entry as guests munched on fried chicken fritters, corn dogs and a tower of cupcakes.
According to CMT, Gary Overton, the head of Sony Music Nashville told the crowd, "This is an incredibly special night, we have multiple awards for Miranda." Lambert was also given platinum digital single plaques for 'Gunpowder & Lead' and 'The House That Built Me,' as well as a platinum album for 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.'
The evening's most touching moment came when Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin, who wrote her hit 'The House That Built Me,' gave the country star an original painting of a house inspired by the tune.
Lambert said, "It's almost like an overnight success takes 10 years. I didn't sign a record deal until six years ago, but I've been doing this for 10 years. All of a sudden, 2010 comes and it was like, 'Oh my gosh' — it all happens at once." She goes on say, "I hope I've built strong enough of a foundation for a career that it will keep building. I'm shooting for building an empire."
