Certain Songs #1148: Miranda Lambert – “Kerosene”

Album: Kerosene
Year: 2005

Those of you who don’t really pay any attention to popular contemporary country music are probably at least know the name of Miranda Lambert, and maybe even know that she’s one of the hugest country stars in the world. Hell, you even know that she was married for awhile to that country guy on that singing competition TV show. Or maybe even know that she got her recording contract after not winning an earlier country-based singing competition TV show.

I just realized that I’ve been writing about her as if she hasn’t sold millions and millions of records, but at the same time, I don’t think she’s ever fully crossed over into the mainstream, like Taylor Swift has, so it seems like there’s a gap between how big she is in the country world vs. how big she is in general.
