Miranda Lambert says not winning ‘Nashville Star’ in 2003 was the best thing that could have happened. It gave her time to mature as an artist, and to write and record songs that she believed in. While singles like “Me and Charlie Talking” and “Kerosene” weren’t huge radio hits, they set the tone for what was to come. The native Texan was raised by parents who worked as private investigators. Often, they’d take in women in need of help. Other times, the money would dry up completely. Lambert’s 2010 hit “The House That Built Me” tells her story, even though she didn’t write it. It was this song and marrying Blake Shelton that raised her profile. Their marriage ended in 2015 after four years. The multi-time Female Vocalist of the Year winner is now known for crafting artistically superior albums.
Birthday: November 10, 1983
Top Songs: "Gunpowder & Lead," "Over You"

Miranda Lambert's "Tin Man" finds the singer in absolute despair, swearing off love as her heart is in pieces. The song — track No. 1 on "The Heart" side of The Weight of These Wings — is a heartbreaker that's easy to imagine being about ex-husband Blake Shelton.
Miranda Lambert’s gypsy heart beats strong on The Weight of These Wings, even if it is scarred. Themes of heartache and untethered rambling dominate the 24 songs on her two-disc release. There are few loose ends but plenty of surprises.
It's not listed as a duet, but Miranda Lambert's song "Pushin' Time" prominently features her boyfriend Anderson East. The couple sing of resisting and finally giving into their feelings during this soft love song.
