Miranda Lambert turned 40 years old over the weekend, and she shared on social media what she did to celebrate.

Miranda Lambert was born on November 10, 1983 to parents Rick and Bev Lambert. While she was born in Longview, Texas, she was raised in Lindale, Texas.

Miranda’s journey to the spotlight began in 2003.

Lambert made a name for herself when she placed third in the television competition show Nashville Star. This marked the inception of a career that would redefine contemporary country music.

Even though she didn’t win, it probably was the best thing for her, because she wasn’t pigeon-holed with the recording contract. Nashville Star judge and Sony Music executive Tracy Gershon was so impressed with Lambert, that she signed with the company after  her exit.

In 2005, she released her debut album, Kerosene, which quickly earned critical acclaim for its raw, edgy sound and emotionally charged lyrics. The title track became a breakout hit, showcasing Lambert’s distinctive voice and songwriting prowess. Her sophomore album, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend 2007, further solidified her place in the industry, earning her the first of many Grammy Awards.

Lambert’s career continued to soar with subsequent albums, including Revolution and Four the Record (2011), each showcasing her ability to blend traditional country elements with a contemporary edge. The poignant and introspective “The House That Built Me” earned her widespread recognition and a Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.

A trailblazer for female artists in country music, Lambert co-founded the all-female trio Pistol Annies in 2011, and they have since released four total albums. Her solo career reached new heights with the release of Platinum in 2014, which won the Grammy Award for Best Country Album.

Beyond her musical achievements, Miranda Lambert is celebrated for her authenticity and unwavering commitment to her roots. With hit after hit, she continues to captivate audiences, proving herself as a powerhouse in the country music scene.

Miranda finds love in Brendan McLoughlin.

Miranda married NYPD officer Brendan McLoughlin in a surprise ceremony on January 26, 2019, but didn’t announce it until February 16. They have since travelled the world together and seem very much in love!

On October 14, Miranda posted a carousel of photos and funny videos of her husband, and wrote, “Happy Birthday to the best husband. @brendanjmcloughlin I love you. You’re the one that I want.”

McLoughlin returned the favor by posting on his Instagram in honor of his bride’s birthday on November 10th.

“It’s finally here, your 40th birthday has arrived. I can’t tell you how thankful I am to stand beside you for yet another year around the sun. I’m the lucky one, because 40 has never looked so good,” he wrote. “Don’t change for anyone, you have touched so many lives, both human and animal. You bring smiles to every room you walk in. The world is much better place with you in it. The love that you show through your art, your love of dogs and your dedication to both family and friends is just the tip of the iceberg of exactly how big of heart you have. Your the most beautiful person inside and out.”
