Miranda Lambert Wins Big

Texas tough gal Miranda Lambert was the deserving big winner at the CMA Awards last night, winning album of the year for Revolution, which a couple of Philadelphia Inquirer critics put on their Top Ten lists last year, and she also won for female vocalist of the year and best video for "The House That Built Me." Her fiance, Blake Shelton, took home two trophies, too, at the country awards show that Nashville cares about the most. (Brad Paisley won Entertainer of the Year.) Lambert and Sheryl Crow also sang "Coal Miner's Daughter" with 76 year old Loretta Lynn, who gave Lambert the seal of authenticity backstage, saying "Nobody's more country than Miranda. I love her." Lynn, by the way, plays the Baptist Temple in North Philaelphia on March 18.
