Miranda Lambert is a country girl from Longview, Texas and was born November 10, 1983. She knew she wanted to be a Country Music Singer early-on. Her family helped pitch in to help finance her very first studio recording at the age of 18, back in 2001. After becoming a contestant on the show Nashville Star, coming-in at third place, Miranda landed a big-deal contract with Sony Music. Kerosene (2005), was Miranda’s very first major record, which went platinum pretty fast. And of course, Mr. Blake Shelton is the proud husband of Miranda Lambert, who is now dubbed Country Music’s Sweethearts.

She loves the sport of it; the serenity and the opportunity to clear her head. She’s been seen on popular hunting shows and has been interviewed by Field and Stream, saying “Don’t get me wrong, I love gun hunting, but I really have gotten into bowhunting.” Miranda and her husband both own land in Oklahoma and love to hunt in their free time (whenever that is).
