Top 10 Miranda Lambert Songs
Sony Music Nashville
'Time to Get a Gun'
Who among us hasn't thought they wanted to take -- shall we say -- extreme measures to fight back the mad swirl of changes and craziness that continually pop up in our lives? What's especially endearing about this song is that it so perfectly captures Miranda's take-charge spirit. A car was stolen and I'm gonna get a gun. Yep, that's Miranda.
'Heart Like Mine'
Classic country was full of black sheep crying in their beers over familial disapproval. Miranda's just given the classic tale a contemporary spin -- instead of shooting a man in Reno just to watch him die, she takes up drinkin' and getting tattoos. Jesus understands ... even if the family doesn't.
(Co-written with Blake Shelton)
There's something about Miranda's vocals on this song that just send chills up our spines - and we're not even red-headed Bernice or the titular troublemaker. This is Miranda giving some of her vocal best.
Why does this shrewdly played song about shaking hands with your enemies remind us of the classic smile-while-you're-stabbing-'em-in-the-back story told in the film 'All About Eve?' See, we're all really very much alike.
Speaking of soap operas, Erica Kane of 'All My Children' fame -- against whom all other evil, manipulative divas pale -- could easily be the heroine of this 'every woman's fantasy,' striking back in a fierce hissy fit after loves goes wrong. Who cares about jail when your honor is at stake? (Note to those who still want a chance with Blake Shelton -- Move on!)
'Gunpowder and Lead'
We bet if the guy in jail knew what was waiting for him at his planned homecoming, he'd beg to stay in the slammer. "This one's for all you girls out there who've ever been mistreated by a man," says Miranda in her video. 'Nuf said.
'More Like Her'
Would Miranda be Miranda without her fiery passion? Nah. Let him go to the one who never says much when she gets mad. Miranda thinks she should have been 'more like her' ... but something tells us that'll pass.
Take the killer songwriting talents of Steve Earle, mix with the same from Miranda and you have this explosive "love gone wrong" song. No wonder it's destined to be a classic break-up tune. The video, which captures Miranda at her casual prettiest even as she's leaving a trail of kerosene in her wake, is straight from a classic soap opera storyline.
'The House That Built Me'
Miranda didn't write this one, but she sure could have. Not only does the lovely tune strike a chord in her heart that shines through in her tender vocals, but the song is especially poignant now that Miranda's a soon-to-be bride. Hankies out, please.
