Country singer Miranda Lambert first landed on the public’s radar in 2003, when she appeared on the country music singing competition Nashville Star. Although she didn’t end up winning the competition, her finish as runner-up did not stop her from going on to become one of the most popular female country singers of today. In 2011, Miranda had one of her biggest and busiest years yet. In addition to marrying fellow country singer Blake Shelton, she recorded the debut album for her group, Pistol Annies, as well as her fourth solo album, Four the Record. Four the Record debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart. With its release, she became the first country artist to have each of her first four albums hit #1 on the Top Country Albums Chart.

Randy Houser burst onto the country music scene in 2008 with his debut album Anything Goes. The title track of the album, “Anything Goes,” was a Top 20 hit on the Billboard country singles chart that same year. Houser’s sophomore album, They Call Me Cadillac peaked at number eight on the US Country Chart. In 2011 he released “In God’s Time,” which was the lead-off single to his upcoming, untitled third album.
