Miranda Lambert to Perform at Riverbend

Chattanooga, TN – Friends of the Festival is proud to announce country superstar, Miranda Lambert, will headline the Coca-Cola Stage on Wednesday, June 15, 2011. Lambert came on the scene during the first season of “Nashville Star” in 2003, where she placed third, setting the “career bar” quite high indeed. Yet, with years of playing Texas nightclubs as a teenager, she still had to learn to face down Nashville executives with the same steely determination with which she’d stared down rowdy bar crowds.

Her most successful single to date, “Gunpowder and Lead,” Lambert proclaimed that some little girls are made less of sugar and spice than more combustible substances. And the title track of her 2005 platinum debut, “Kerosene,” established her in the country music firmament as a figuratively (and maybe even literal) incendiary personality. But it’s likely no mistake that the new album’s title, “Revolution” could be taken as similarly aggressive or just a simple pledge of personal reinvention.

Fast forward to 2010 when top CMA Awards nominee Miranda Lambert (entering “Country Music’s Biggest Night” with a record nine nominations) walked away with an armful of CMA Awards. The Texas bombshell took home three trophies, including Female Vocalist, Album for “Revolution” (produced by Frank Liddell and Mike Wrucke) and Music Video of the Year for “The House That Built Me” (directed by Trey Fanjoy, who picked up her second consecutive Award in that category). The three Awards were actually the first she has won in her career. “Revolution” has certainly caused a revolution in my life this year thanks to the Country Music industry,” Lambert expressed after winning Album of the Year. “It’s what I love, it’s what I do, it’s what I live for, so thank you for loving it too.”

Most recently, during the 2011 Grammy nominations, Miranda was nominated in five categories.
