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.
