Grammy award winner Miranda Lambert has firmly made her mark on the country music world. Lambert is not only the reigning and two time winner of the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Female Artist of the Year award, but each of her four albums have debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Chart. This makes Lambert the first artist in the history of the 47-year chart to have each of her first four albums reach #1. Kerosene (2005), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (2007), Revolution (2009) and Four The Record (2011) collectively spawned ten Top 20 hits, including four that reached the top of the charts. "White Liar", the smash hit, "The House That Built Me", "Heart Like Mine" and, most recently, "Over You" all reached the top spot. Notably, "The House That Built Me" stayed at the top of the charts for four straight weeks and won six major awards. Lambert has won nineteen awards in total, with the most recent being Album of The Year for Four The Record at the ACM Awards in April of 2012. Lambert's latest single, "Fastest Girl In Town" is currently climbing the charts.

 

Aside from her love for music, Lambert has invested her heart into her charity, Muttnation Foundation. Her strong love for animals has given Lambert the ability to donate close to three quarters of a million dollars to animals in need. For more information visit www.muttnationfoundation.com. With multiple number one hits, three successful headlining tours and her husband, NBC's The Voice and fellow country star Blake Shelton by her side, Lambert is set to continue to make country music history.
