Miranda Lambert’s Platinum Debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200


Miranda Lambert fans have even more to be excited about. Billboard just released that her latest album Platinum debuted at #1! She also became the first country music artist to have each of her first five albums debut at #1. Congratulations Miranda!

In response to the news, Miranda said, “THANK YOU to the music lovers who believe in albums and spent your hard-earned money on 16 songs! 16 songs that all say something important to me. I hope that they also speak to you, and I hope you enjoy listening to Platinum. Thank you to the incredible musicians, songwriters, producers and artists that put this record together. I’m the luckiest girl in the world, blessed with the best fans!”

Fans aren’t the only ones celebrating Miranda’s new album.  Among Platinum’s shining reviews:

“With these songs, Lambert reinforces the principles underlying both Platinum and the rest of her career: feminine strength, force of personality, and command of the situation. Further commercial dominance is sure to follow.”

– Time Magazine

Lambert “earned her throne” by “singing top-shelf songs in the voice of a woman getting real. Listening to her records is like eavesdropping in a hair salon.”

– Rolling Stone (4-star review)

Platinum is “an old-school country wisecracker that’s one of her all-time best.”

– Entertainment Weekly (grade of “A”)
