Albums like "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and "Revolution" quickly established Miranda Lambert as one of the bad girls of country music: spinning tales of revenge, firearms, and hard living. Lambert's latest record, "Platinum," moves her even further up the pole when it won a Grammy Award for Best Country Album. The LP shows why the Texan is one of Nashville's biggest stars with a bunch of top-notch songs and of course, feisty lyrics.
Miranda Lambert performs with Kip Moore and Brothers Osborne on Thursday, June 23, at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center, 9993 Allegheny Road, Darien Center. 7:30 p.m. $30.50-$65.25. darienlake.com; mirandalambert.com.
