Miranda Lambert's fiery lyrics, heartfelt music, and a seeming penchant for firearms made her a bona fide country music sweetheart with an edge. She first exploded onto the music scene as a finalist on the reality music competition series "Nashville Star" (USA Network, 2003-08), before releasing her debut album Kerosene (2005), which blew up on the country music charts. Lambert's follow-up album, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (2007), made her a breakout star, thanks to gutsy songs about women who relished seeking revenge on cheating exes or lying in wait to shoot abusive boyfriends. The Grammy Award-winning singer's personal life heated up after she began dating country music star Blake Shelton, whom she married in 2011, much to the delight of country music fans. That same year, Lambert's album Revolution, featuring the smash hits "White Liar" and "The House That Built Me," dominated the charts, proving that she was one of the most talented and dynamic personalities in country music.
