Short bio: 

Miranda Leigh Lambert was born November 10, 1983 in Longview, Texas. At 16, Lambert appeared on the Johnnie High Country Music Revue in Arlington, Texas, the same talent show that had helped launch the career of LeAnn Rimes. Lambert then acquired a recording session in Nashville, but left the studio after she became frustrated with the "pop" type of music presented to her. She went back to Texas in 2000 and asked her dad to teach her how to play guitar, so she could write her own songs.

In 2002, Miranda and her father, Rick, met entertainment attorney Rod Phelps who had been instrumental in getting Garth Brooks, Chris Cagle and Rory Lee Feek to move to Nashville. Phelps was impressed with the Lamberts and sent letters and demos to producer and record executive Mark Wright and Garth's manager, Bob Doyle. Their positive responses convinced Miranda to return to Nashville. In 2003 she auditioned for the talent competition Nashville Star, where she earned a third-place finish. On September 15, 2003, she signed with Epic Records.

Lambert made her debut with the release of "Me and Charlie Talking", the first single from her 2005 debut album Kerosene. Since then Lambert has had much chart success with her latest and her fifth album, "Platinum", in June 2014. The album was preceded by the lead single, "Automatic," which hit top 4 on the Country charts. The album’s second single, "Somethin' Bad", features Carrie Underwood.

In 2011, Lambert married fellow country singer Blake Shelton

I don't know if you actually read these but I've been wanting to write to you for a while about your song "Over you". the first time I heard it I think I cried for an hour. A year ago my everything passed away driving my car he died February 9th and we had just reconnected in December over Christmas your song word for word describes the situation and how I handled it. your words "mid-february shouldn't be so scary it was only December I still remember the presents the tree you and me" shot through my heart like a bullet but it was a good cry. I was so angry for so long and you say "you went away how dare you I miss you". Also you talk about the records and how he didn't mean to give them away. Well when Casey died we lived together and I was in charge of what to do with his possessions and he had all these old records(vinyl), like bob Marley ect. He was so proud of them. I couldn't bring myself to give them away. And I lived alone in the house we had for about 6 months after he passed. The song quote "living alone here in this place, I think of you and I'm not afraid." It almost felt like I saw his ghost in every corner of the house and it was almost comforting.

I realize you might not have written the song, but I honestly could not imagine a better performer for it. I love your voice, and your attitude. You seam like a very respectable woman. Congratulations to you for your success. Thank you for being a good role model to young girls, and of course the beautiful song.
Have a nice day. :)

Miranda, I was so shocked on your split from Blake! I have been following it since it started, and quite honestly, I am so sick of seeing all these articles gushing over Gwen and Blake! Gwen actually used to be one of my favorite artists, but this whole scenario has just given me such a negative feeling toward both of them. It's just so disrespectful, this flaunting! I wish I could see more about you in the news. I feel for you, having gone through a divorce in 2013, that my husband literally stepped from me right to the next woman. It makes me angry seeing all this splashed all over the news with no regard for how you are doing, let alone how it might be making you feel. And really, what normal, healthy person can look at that rebound relationship and see it as anything exciting anyway?! I love your music, and I love your style and persona! I wish I could give you a big hug of support! Stay strong, lady! :)

Hello Miranda. After our 14 months of texting, I miss you a lot. I have been trying to get a hold of you after we broke up to see how you are doing. Do you remember me and my contact number?
