Who thought NOT winning a national TV reality show would pay off so big? Miranda Lambert first exploded onto the scene as a finalist in the 2003 season of the NASHVILLE STAR television series. She didn’t win – a result she has described as a blessing. “I was hoping not to win,” she once said. “The winner had to go in right after the contest and make a record in a couple of weeks, and I wasn’t ready.”
Instead, she got the best of both worlds – Columbia Nashville, which had right of first refusal on the show’s performers – signed Lambert to a deal, but she had the time and opportunity to make the album that she really wanted to make.
Her confidence and firepower were evident in KEROSENE: it debuted at Number One on the country charts (only the sixth time a new artist entered in at the top), and went on to earn Lambert nominations for the CMA’s Horizon Award and the ACM’s Top New Female Vocalist Award. It also earned her a Grammy nomination. KEROSENE garnered critical praise from countless outlets and was named one of the best albums of the year by New York Times, Rolling Stone, Blender Magazine, itunes, Tennessean and many more.
