Miranda Lambert, Worth the Drive

It's almost enough to make me consider spending a Saturday afternoon outlet shopping: Country-rock spitfire and superb songwriter Miranda Lambert, whose latest, Revolution, is a Top 10 of 2009 contender, is playing in Reading tonight. It's a beautiful day for a drive to the Pretzel Capital of the World, and the only opportunity to see the pistol-packing Texas firecracker in these country music deprived parts any time soon, as the next closest tour date on her itinerary is in South Carolina in March.

It's almost enough to make me consider spending a Saturday afternoon outlet shopping: Country-rock spitfire and superb songwriter Miranda Lambert, whose latest, Revolution, is a Top 10 of 2009 contender, is playing in Reading tonight.  It's a beautiful day for a drive to the Pretzel Capital of the World, and the only opportunity to see the pistol-packing Texas firecracker in these country music deprived parts any time soon, as the next closest tour date on her itinerary is in South Carolina in March.

Here's a profile of Lambert I wrote back in 2007 when she was on tour with Toby Keith, and here's Nick Cristiano's review of the new album. And below is the new single "White Liar," in which, for once, she dispenses with a wayward man without whipping out a weapon, and a rocked-out cover of John Prine's "That's The Way The World Goes Round," which give youn a good idea where Lambert's coming from. And check out the bearded preacher in the "Liar" video: It's rough-and-tumble (and worthy of investigation) country baritone Jamey Johnson.

Info on Lambert's show at the  Sovereign Bank Performance Center is here.
