Miranda Lambert

Miranda Lambert’s childhood was anything but conventional. Raised by private investigator parents in Lindale, Texas, she became enthralled with country music after attending a Garth Brooks concert as a child. After recording a few demos in Nashville as a teenager, Lambert was inspired to learn to play guitar; her father taught her the instrument so she could accompany herself. The budding songstress graduated from high school early in order to pursue her music career, releasing a self-titled independent album in 2001 and coming in third on ‘Nashville Star’ in 2003. Lambert released her major-label debut, ‘Kerosene,’ in 2005 and met her future husband, Blake Shelton, one year later, when they sang together for CMT’s ’100 Greatest Duets Concert.’ The couple wed in 2011. In addition to her country career, Lambert is a budding entrepreneur — she owns a boutique, a bed and breakfast and a winery — and head of her animal-centric non-profit, the MuttNation Foundation.

Our Favorite Country Music Pets [PICTURES]

Country artists love their pets like they love cowboy boots and the Grand Ole Opry. They love their pets fiercely and with utter devotion, like they're part of the family (which, as any pet owner will tell you, they are). And even though country stars have incredibly taxing schedules, featuring plenty of public appearances and long tours, they still make time for the furry friends in their lives.
