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"
