"Four the Record" - Miranda Lambert

I'm not a celebrity blogger of any sort, but I want to say how stoked I am about Miranda Lambert's new album “Four the Record!”        

Buy the Record here:

I’ve been listening to her music since 2007. She’s proved herself way beyond a one hit wonder. From “Kerosene” to “Gun Powder and Lead” to “A Heart Like Mine,” and now to “Baggage Claim,” Miranda only proves herself more and more as Music Row powerhouse.  I’ve listened to country music my entire life, and there are only a handful that truly stand out; George Strait, Reba, Martina McBride, Sugarland, George Jones, Johnny Cash, and the likes there of, Miranda can definitely fit snug there in her seat within that list.  Miranda’s not bubble gum country, and she’d definitely got a sound all to her own. She’s young, but she writes and performs well beyond her years, and I love that her music surpasses all generations.  

I have to say that one of the things I admire about Miranda Lambert is that she's real. She's still true to her Texan roots, and even though she's got all the fame and fortune anyone could ever ask for...she doesn't act like it.  It's not that common to see these days, and it's a breath of fresh air when you can relate to your favorite artists both lyrically and as a person.

I fell in love with “Baggage Claim” the moment I heard it on the radio. I instantly wanted to learn it.  It’s got a great hook! I’d say it’s a “fun/powerful breakup song, and is definitely a song that can be felt whether female or male. 

I haven’t heard the entire album, though I did hear “Safe” when she debuted the album last week live on the radio. (I forget what station…..) It’ll definitely be an instant hit.  But, I’ll wrap this up by saying go purchase “FOUR THE RECORD!”  Roll down the windows to your car, and sing along out loud!
