What's not to love about Miranda Lambert?

Miranda Lambert hasn't allowed being a country music sensation to go to her head. She remains a humble, down to earth woman who wears her emotions on her sleeve. She tells it likes it is. Miranda is the real deal.

You would never guess that in 2007 she was known as country music's newest bad girl, which just might explain why I instantly became a fan. Miranda's first hit single, Kerosene, fired up the charts and the rest is history.

Miranda seems thankful for where her journey has led her. Heck, wouldn't you be? She has the looks, talent, personality and she is just so darn lovable!

Miranda is a pistol full of pep! She is a firecracker with a fuse that lights up on stage. Whether she is singing about cheating boyfriends or domestic abuse, she gets her point across to her listeners.

Miranda sings about revenge, lies and regrets...childhood memories and love. No matter what lyrics Miranda is entertaining her fans with, chances are...we are listening, learning and loving it.

She also believes that women have the power to run the world...isn't that reason enough to love Miranda Lambert?

Finale facts...

I had fun researching and collecting facts on Miranda Lambert. I hope you enjoyed learning something new. I have been a fan of Miranda's since her hit single, Kerosene.

There was something about this spunky blonde bombshell with the attitude that had this fan coming back for more.

I remember back in the day watching award shows and Miranda was overshadowed by other country music stars, I knew her day would come soon. And the day finally came in 2007 when Miranda won her first ACM award.

Since that initial win she has accumulated countless ACM's, CMA's, ACCA, CMT's and a Grammy! The nominations nods are also endless. The country music industry knows better than to mess with a bad girl like ML.

If you weren't a fan of Miranda's before, hopefully you are now!

      I'm generally a hard rock/heavy metal kind of guy but I dig Miranda. Aside from her being a total hottie, her songs like "Kerosene" and "Gunpowder and Lead" are full of cool, kick-a** attitude. I bet she could make a pretty killer rock album if she wanted to, she's a rocker chick in a country girl's clothing.

      Linda, I really enjoyed this hub. I saw a documentary about Miranda not too long ago. It was immediately followed by a documentary about Blake. That was a great afternoon of TV!

      I think she's a fantastic song writer. My favorite is The House That Built Me. What a tear jerker!

      I love that she does her own hair and makeup and likes vintage anything. A girl after my own heart!

      I do love Miranda Lambert and Blake! Their ranches are only about 30 miles from us. Hubby and I have seen her here in our little town before. She is just as cute in person! I was really happy to hear when she opened up her "no kill" shelter. That goes to show what a good heart she has.
