Even if Miranda could embrace and accept that her name had been added to a list that includes Loretta, Dolly and Tammy – as well as Reba McEntire – she still finds it incomprehensible that her name was again called the following year…and every subsequent year since. “Seven-time ACM and six-time CMA Female Vocalist” – that is Miranda Lambert’s title. In world where we know all of these women as icons and true “Queens of Country,” Miranda – in the record books – reigns supreme in her own right, having earned the honor more times than any of those legends at the CMA Awards and matching McEntire’s long-standing tally in the Academy’s annals.
With an inimitable voice the New York Times describes as “wholly different, thicker and more throbbing, a caldron bubbling over,” Randy Houser racked up three consecutive No. 1 hits and more than four million in singles sales to date with his Stoney Creek Records album, How Country Feels. He topped the charts with the title track, “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss” and earned critical acclaim for his powerful delivery of the Top 5 smash and CMA Song of the Year-nominated “Like A Cowboy.” Randy Houser’s fifth studio album, Magnolia, will be his third album with current label home, Stoney Creek Records. Listeners got their first taste of Houser’s rootsy new sound with the summer release of “What Whiskey Does,” which debuted at Country radio as #1 Most Added and Rolling Stone immediately dubbed “a classic tears-and-twang drinking song.”
