The incredible Miranda Lambert is ready to unleash a new album! It’s the exciting follow-up to her ACM Album of the Year winner, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and the anticipation is sky-high for Tuesday’s release of Revolution. It’s packed with 15 songs — and Miranda had a hand in writing 11 of them — so one thing fans can count on hearing is more of what Miranda is all about. “I don’t have anything to hide, and I want people to know who I am,” she says. “All the artists I love are the ones that bare their souls, so why would I stray away from that?”
Miranda tells us that the record wasn’t made piecemeal over a long period of time, but that she went in and recorded it in a week…and the way she chose to record the album says a lot about how she sees Revolution — not as a series of songs, but truly as a singular body of work. ”Every song matters…it’s part of a picture, and if one’s missing, the picture’s not complete.” And while fans can always buy individual songs digitally, Miranda says she’s very proud of Revolution and really hopes that everyone will choose to enjoy the album as a whole. ”I feel like if people just buy one song off this album, they’re not gonna understand what it’s about and who I am because I really found myself creatively and just opened up artistically.”
Tune-in as Miranda celebrates the release of Revolution with Tuesday performances on Good Morning America on ABC and on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman! Then be sure not to miss her as she lights up the night on Thursday, October 1st, performing on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon!

Among the songs that Miranda wrote for Revolution, three were co-written with boyfriend Blake Shelton. And Blake and Miranda teamed with Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood to write “Love Song.”
Miranda says that fans will still find a lot of the qualities they enjoyed on her first two albums…and more lyrical diversity, too.
Revolution is home to Miranda’s new hit, “White Liar,” as well as “Dead Flowers,” a cover of the great John Prine’s “That’s the Way That the World Goes ‘Round,” and much, much more!
Miranda rocked Music City on Thursday night, September 24th, when she hit the stage of the Ryman Auditorium for a spectacular, sold-out Nashville performance where she previewed every song from Revolution. With her mom and dad in the audience, Miranda tore up the house with new music, hits like “Gunpowder & Lead” and “More Like Her,” and even an intimate “intermission” for a selection of classics including Miranda-hero Merle Haggard’s “The Way I Am” and a killer version of Patsy Cline’s “Crazy” that earned a standing ovation.
ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!
Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E.
