15. Airstream Song (Revolution, 2009)

“This is one of my favourite songs by miranda, ever. it has such a yearning feel to it and she makes the gypsy life seem so liberating. the lyrics are simple and lovely and just wishing for a life about the simple things. Being able to pick up roots and leave and wander around carefree and breaking hearts.”

14. Little Red Wagon (Forever My Girl, 2014)

“I love that song and video and I love how she puts her animals in her video you can tell she loves her animals, she is down to earth. Glad she won a Grammy for this masterpiece.”

13. Heart Like Mine (Revolution, 2009)

“Miranda Lambert is incapable of writing a boring song or performing without utter conviction. She’s the complete country package: a beautiful singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist with a sharp intelligence and a powerful delivery.”

12. Time to Get a Gun (Revolution, 2009)

“Lambert’s sense of humor rears it’s wicked head once again on “Time To Get A Gun.” Gifted with a percussive arrangement that just chugs along and a sly lead vocal that is totally tongue in cheek, once again you just GOTTA love a song with the lyrics “Time to get a gun, that’s what I’ve been thinkin’/I could afford one if I did just a little less drinkin’!!””

11. New Strings (Kerosene, 2005)

“I thought it was nothing special when I first listened to it, but now I love it. It’s pretty obvious what it means, she’s done with a guy and she’s looking for a new start. I tend to read too much into things, but I think “old guitar and a brand new set of strings” could be a metaphor. She’s the old guitar, and but she’s got a new mindset. Something like that. This song was also written by Miranda Lambert, she’s a talented writer and singer.”

10. Over You (Four the Record, 2011)

“This song makes me cry every time I listen to it. It is just so good and one of the best songs from Four The Record. ‘Over You’ tackles some real-life darkness – co-written with Blake Shelton, it was apparently provoked by the death of his older brother in 1990.”

9. Only Prettier (Revolution, 2009)

“This album is a pretty good choice for a couple reasons. One; Miranda Lambert is diversified yet retains roots in the world of Country Music. There’s a lttle something for everybody.”

8. Famous in a Small Town (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, 2007)

“Along with it’s easy groove and relaxed lead vocal, “Famous….” stands out for another reason; it seems as if every young country artist today HAS TO include a song about how wonderful it is growing up in a small town.”

7. Automatic (Platinum, 2014)

“The first lady of Texas honky-tonk country music is back with a great record of tracks that demonstrate her fantastic voice, her sense of humour and her knack of choosing excellent supporting musicians and collaborators.”

6. Somethin’ Bad (Platinum, 2014)

“Miranda’s voice has a range similar to a mezzo-soprano in the Opera world. She has a good range and can evoke emotion in a song like Barbara Cook. I love listening to her sing ballads, traditional country and more modern country (whatever that really is).”

5. Mama’s Broken Heart (Four the Record, 2011)

“Mama’s Broken Heart” is enjoyable, what with it’s sassy lead vocal, tribal drumbeats and stinging lyrics (“Wish I could be a little less dramatic/Like a Kennedy when Camelot went down in flames”). To quote the Beach Boys….”Fun, fun, fun!!!”

4. White Liar (Revolution, 2009)

“This album is a pretty good choice for a couple reasons. One; Miranda Lambert is diversified yet retains roots in the world of Country Music. There’s a lttle something for everybody. With White Liar and Prettier charging up the batteries and going to the top of the charts, there are a few other noteworthys on this album as well.”

3. The House that Built Me (Revolution, 2009)

“Beautiful, quiet, introspective song about memories of home consisting of poignant images, subtle instrumentation and of course great singing. Her voice really brings this piece to life and it’s among the strongest songs of her current album. Almost too personal and un-bombastic for current Country radio, but it actually is her first #1 hit and is making a bit crossover noise as well.. that’s why you shouldn’t lose your faith in Country music because sometimes the good does get paid off. Good for her she took this song when it was originally was intended for her fiancée Blake Shelton (as she didn’t write it herself unlike most of her stuff) who then handed it over! Maybe marketing Miranda as a gun-friendly Gretchen Wilson was the wrong choice and she should have done this kind of stuff earlier..”

2. Kerosene (Kerosene, 2005)

“The very first seconds of this song (the guitar riff, the rattle of the tambourine, acoustic strums joining in quickly) condense the sound of the ’00s like basically no other song I can think of does. It’s kinda blissful, and one of my favorite things ever. Miranda here comes fully formed: from her very first singles she was ready to present her assertive persona. Not only there was no reliance on balladry at all, but there isn’t even much reliance on emotion either. This is a witty song! Sharp, cold, full of quotables! It has no actual chorus! It’s like a rush of adrenaline, like waking up fully energized one morning knowing that you gotta do what you gotta do. “

1. Gunpowder & Lead (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, 2007)

“The good thing about this song is that, unlike Carrie Underwood in “Two Black Cadillacs”, you can absolutely believe that Miranda Lambert would shoot up some asshole if he smacked her around and cheated on her. Hell, I’m surprised she didn’t act this out on Blake Shelton.”
