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.
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
Before becoming one of country music's most popular females, Miranda Lambert successfully auditioned for "Nashville Star", a reality TV series modeled after the "American Idol" format. She eventually finished third in the competition, earning a recording contract with Sony. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, released in 2007, established Lambert as one of country's newest "bad girls," a designation that nodded to the fiery temperament of her music. Her songs spun tales of cheating boyfriends and domestic abuse, and they often ended with the singer extracting violent, spectacular revenge on her aggressors. For 2009's award-winning Revolution, however, she branched out into other subjects, writing songs about love, regret, and childhood. Released in 2014, Platinum became her first album to top the country and pop charts. ~ Steve Leggett
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (No. 812, p.72) - "[A] spunky set of honky-tonk, country-rock, and Sheryl Crow-style ballads....[Lambert] clearly knows how to write a killer tune." - Grade: B
