The country songs of
Nashville's singer-songwriter Miranda Lambert (born in Texas)
couldn't be more old-fashioned.
After a Miranda Lambert (2001), with Texas Pride and Somebody Else,
she established herself as a angry young woman of country music on the self-penned
Kerosene (2005), containing
Me and Charlie Talking and Kerosene, followed by
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (2007), with
Gunpowder and Lead,
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and
Me and Charlie Talking.
She then flirted with rock music on
Revolution (2009), whose Only Prettier is at least
Her fame further increase when she married country star Blake Shelton,
and Four the Record (2011) was duly hiped, despite containing
only mediocre material like Over You.
The booming and polished sound of Platinum (2014) marked a significant
change in musical attitude, but the potential was reflected only in the
pulsating jump-blues Little Red Wagon and in the swinging ragtime
Gravity's a Bitch, both of which sound like parodies; but the center
of mass clearly belongs to
melancholy singalongs such as Hard Staying Sober and to pensive ballads
such as Smokin' and Drinkin'.
