Muze PNote Many contestants on AMERICAN IDOL and similar TV shows go on to greater success, but due to their relative lack of experience, often have a hard time finding their niche. Not Miranda Lambert--when KEROSENE was released in 2005, the NASHVILLE STAR third-place winner was barely out of her teens, but she had already spent years honing her craft in bars. In addition to being a confident vocalist and strong-willed businessperson, Lambert is a crafty songwriter whose work is easily on par with that of Nashville veterans twice her age.
Muze PNote The title track is a pounding, attitude-filled country-rocker reminiscent of John Cougar Mellencamp's "Rain on the Scarecrow." (That this diminutive young blonde woman can spit out lines like "Trade the truth for a lie/Cheatin' ain't really a crime" so convincingly is also startling.) "I Can't Be Bothered" is straight-up honky-tonk, replete with whining steel guitar, Buck Owens-worthy twangy Telecaster, and a jaunty dance beat, while "Me and Charlie Talking" is funky swamp-country of the Jerry Reed variety, albeit with lovelorn lyrics that reveal Lambert's old soul. An uncommonly accomplished debut, KEROSENE is the first outing by a genuine all-around talent.

Artist Overview

The daughter of a respected behind-the-scenes country guitarist, Miranda Lambert found success via the talent/variety show circuit. After conquering her native Texas, Lambert, like all aspiring country singers, headed to Nashville. Her competitive performing jaunt culminated in her finishing third overall in the 2003 NASHVILLE STAR reality-TV show (a country music version of AMERICAN IDOL). Despite not winning on the high-profile contest, Lambert remained in the spotlight and was considered one of the industry's most promising young stars.

- "[A] spunky set of honky-tonk, country-rock, and Sheryl Crow-style ballads....[Lambert] clearly knows how to write a killer tune." - Grade: B
