FASTEST GIRL IN TOWN
Though she and Blake Shelton form country music’s most beloved couple since Faith and Tim, Miranda Lambert’s best tunes are often about break-ups. “Kerosene,” the first single off her debut LP of the same name, is about dousing her old life with the title substance and doing you know what, and in “Mama’s Broken Heart,” her latest, she justifies such behavior to the matriarch who tells her she should hide the pain and act like a lady. Dierks Bentley, the good-natured, good-time-loving good ol’ boy behind drinking tunes like “Tip It on Back” and “What Was I Thinkin’” makes for a worthy opener, but when Lambert takes the stage she will command the arena.
