Miranda Lambert Compares Herself to Hank Williams

She says she brings the same honesty to music as the 1940s/’50s country pioneer did.

In a story that aired this morning (Oct. 27), National Public Radio declares that Miranda Lambert's lyrical penchant for revenge and guns definitely sets her apart from other blond country singers like, say, Taylor Swift.

Miranda was asked if she's breaking gender boundaries in country music.

“I hope so,” she said.

“To me, country music is about real life,” she continued, "the good and the bad.

“That’s why country started, and it was because of Hank Williams telling true stories. And I don’t see why a woman can’t tell the truth just as fast as a man can.”
