Miranda Lambert In The New York Times

The New York Times has a cool write-up on Miranda Lambert. Lambert talks about the influences for her new album – “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” – gives credit to Gretchen Wilson for opening the career door for her and is compared to some mighty company:

Ms. Lambert, 23, cites the usual outlaw influences — Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard — as well as the well-regarded singer-songwriters Steve Earle, Buddy Miller, Jerry Jeff Walker and Guy Clark. In essence, Ms. Lambert is an alt-country singer operating covertly in the mainstream. “Dwight Yoakam, the Dixie Chicks — I think there’s a way to be really cool and mainstream, too,” she said.

    Thanks to all for the nice words.

    kieran, it was nice to meet you as well. Bar 9 is one of my favorite watering holes in the hood. I love Hnaks (saw the screaming Yahoos there before heading to the Hank III show last fall) but it is a bit out of the way.

    al – Keep checking in. I have some work on the site coming up to tighten it up and make it a little search engine friendly. And of couse I will continue harshing those oh so deserving.
