Miranda Lambert Has a Tough Act to Follow
Winning the ACM Award for Album of the Year comes with a lot of glory . . . and a lot of stress! Miranda Lambert's sophomore CD, 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,' earned those honors this year, which makes recording her next album a little scary.
"I've started writing for the next record, and . . . um, no pressure," she said sarcastically during a GAC interview. "This one was Album of the Year, so what am I gonna do now? But it's definitely gonna be different, because I'm different in my life right now. Every record I have reflects on where I am as a 21-year-old girl or a 24-year-old girl. I don't know what this next one will be like, but I've been writing for it, and so far, it's going in a good direction."
The album's latest single, 'Gunpowder and Lead,' is sitting pretty at the Top Ten on the country charts -- Lambert's highest charting song ever. She also boasts background vocals on the No. 1 song in the country right now: boyfriend Blake Shelton's 'Home.'
