Miranda Lambert

Friday, February 18, and Saturday, February 19, at Billy Bob's in Fort Worth

Miranda Lambert has struck a delicate balance: Together with kindred artists like Jamey Johnson, she's made country music palatable once again to the sanctimonious scads of big-city, Tea Party-loathing dissenters, infusing the genre with a newfound sense of authenticity missing since the days of her legendary outlaw forefathers.

At the same time, she's managed to write earnest, heartfelt everyman ballads like "The House That Built Me," as well as gritty angst-filled anthems of empowerment like "Gunpowder and Lead" and "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" that resonate with rank-and-file fans of modern country, affording her truckloads of crossover appeal and street cred – not to mention a serious leg up on her contemporaries.

No surprise, then, that last week's Grammy Awards saw the Lindale native walk away with the Best Female Country Vocal Performance award for "The House That Built Me." If that isn't enough of a coronation, then surely this two-night sold-out affair in Fort Worth will be.

Congrats to Miranda for winning her Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance. She's so much better than those two AI clowns... Underwood and Swift! Bahahahaha...
