Miranda Lambert is one of the biggest country stars. However, you do not know everything about her. She has been in the industry for a long time. Miranda has won many awards like two Grammys and is the first woman to have won the Country Music Association Awards’ Album of the Year twice. Her marriage to Blake Shelton was very public and the dissolve was publicized everywhere. Even then, some facts about her life might still surprise you! You might appreciate her more after learning more about her life. It is very interesting.
Her parents Rick and Bev are superheroes. They would take battered women from their husbands and house them. Being private investigators, the parents used Miranda to assist in the investigations! The book called From Cradle to Stage: Stories from the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars by Virginia Hanlon Grohl recalls a story about one situation. Miranda had to dress in a cheerleading costume to sell candy for the school so that she could look for the incriminating evidence her parents needed.
This is hilarious! Who would have thought this was Miranda’s life? It is so bizarre. Miranda the PI instead of the country singer.
The singer used to be super shy. This seems to be a lot of celebrities’ plight. There were either super quiet or super loud. The teachers thought she had a developmental issue because she was so shy. Her turning point came when her mom put her in the debate club where she initially freaked out but won her debate on Democrats and Republicans’ ethics. Her mom said, “Miranda started off extremely shy. She wouldn’t speak. Not a word at school. If she had to order her own food, she’d just not eat”. Wow, she just needed someone to push her out!
Miranda was almost a pop star! The first demo she recorded was more pop than country. Pop didn’t resonate with her, so she looked for something with more of her speed. This turned her to the guitar. Her father bought her a guitar at 10. She did not want anything to do with it. How ironic! After being disappointed with the pop demos, she decided to pick up the guitar again. The rest is history.
Can you imagine Miranda the pop star? Wow. These facts are amazing! She was always star quality from a young age. All she needed was the guidance from her parents.
