    Saw her on TV, Had to Have the CD

    I saw Miranda Lambert on Nashville Star and heard her sing and thought "I have to have her CD." Low and behold I see her in People Magazine and see her CD is out! I couldn't get to the store fast enough! Love it!

    Kerosene Burns Brightyl

    Nashville’s newest starlet has arrived! Texas-born Miranda Lambert’s debut album, “Kerosene” arrived in stores on March 15th. For those who are unfamiliar with Lambert, she placed third out of an initial 800-plus on the USA Network’s first season of “Nashville Star” – a competition much like “American Idol,” but where the winner would receive a recording contract for a country music label. Arkansas’ Buddy Jewell won the first contract. The show is now televising its third season. For Miranda, “Kerosene” is the product of a dream which began over five years ago, when she was just 16, when she began singing and entering contests. During this time, she recorded a self-titled album independently. That release is no longer available due to her current contractual obligations. While tuning in to “Nashville Star,” I decided I wanted to support Miranda. I went to her website often, joined a fan forum on MSN which is now no longer in existence, and worked with some of her other fans to establish “Ran’s Reps” – her fan representation program, which now functions as a “street team.” It was a joy to help her get things going, and I have to admit that the birthday card she sent me is a reminder. I taped it to my wall. It reads, “I am so glad you are part of our fan “family”…” We are. She’s very vocal about her fan support, and her family – parents Rick and Bev, and brother Luke – are completely supportive of her career. I never hesitate to telephone them when I have an idea, want to check something out, or simply want to say hello or wish them a happy holiday. After her third-place finish, Lambert was determined to continue her career. She moved to Nashville and began working on what would become “Kerosene.” I purchased my copy on Easter Sunday and immediately brought it back to Curry. “Kerosene” is packed with 12 tracks, and the booklet inside includes lyrics and a page of “thank yous.” Reading through the booklet, I was reminded that like her father Rick, Miranda is also a songwriter. All but one song was at least partially written by her. The other was penned by fellow “Nashville Star” alum Travis Howard. Going through each song, I smiled. It was finally here. Though I had already heard “Me and Charlie Talking” and seen the video, I now had the other 11 songs as well. The title track exclaims “love’s givin’ up on me!” The second track, “What About Georgia?” comes off as if she’s urging a friend to return home. It’s not a tearjerker but very sentimental and yet powerful at the same time. Moving on to “Greyhound Bound for Nowhere,” I found the song that she had originally gotten my attention with during her appearances on “Nashville Star.” Though it has been slightly altered since then, I think the song is Lambert’s true dark horse – the one her diehard fans love, and the one that is bound to catch the attention of many new listeners. The next tune, “New Strings,” is an ode to her guitar – a Gibson, actually. In it, she lists off her possessions, paying special attention to her new set of guitar strings. Anyone who plays a guitar knows how important these are. “I Can’t Be Bothered,” the Travis Howard song, is a slow ballad about a past love the speaker doesn’t want to miss anymore. “Bring Me Down,” slowly becoming one of my favorites, was co-written by Lambert and Howard. , It’s another ballad about a lover, and how they brought the speaker down emotionally and in reputation. Upbeat and surprisingly titled, “I Wanna Die” isn’t what it seems it could be. It’s actually a tune laden with guitar riffs about wanting to “be the de
