Miranda Lambert – Making History on the Charts
First, a little inside information. Billboard Magazine charts singles and albums. They are the industry standard when it comes to keeping track of an artist's success. Well, there are very few artists lately that have been more successful than Miranda. And now, it turns out her sales are not just successful, they are historic.
It's been almost 50 years since a country act or artist has done what Miranda has done. Wiht the release of her 4th album, 4 The Record, Lambert has had each and every one of her albums debut at number one on the Billboard Album Charts.
Not only that, but 4 The Record more than doubles the sales of her last album. 4 The Record had sold more than 130,000 albums when it debuted.
"Ok, that's crazy," Lambert said. "When you start out, you want to blaze your own trail and set your goals, and I always worry about living up to the standard I set for myself. But I hope it says to every artist who is starting out that if you really go with your heart and stick to your guns and feel okay with exercising your creative license, it will all end up great because you are doing what you believe in."
Miranda is the reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the year. And with the success of her latest album and her side project with Pistol Annies, the sky's the limit for this talented young woman.
