Miranda Lambert Hopes to Have a Career Like Loretta’s

“She has done a good job of balancing her music and her family,” Miranda tells Oklahoma newspaper.

Miranda Lambert has long been a fan of country music trailblazer Loretta Lynn.

And that reverence grew a couple of years ago when Miranda, Sheryl Crow and Loretta remade Loretta's classic hit "Coal Miner's Daughter."

Now, Miranda tells Oklahoma's Tulsa World newspaper that she wants a career just like Loretta's, including its longevity.

"I learned so much from spending a day at her home taping the music video for it ["Coal Miner's Daughter"]," Miranda said.

"She has always been brave enough to sing things that most women felt at the time but wouldn't say, and she has done a good job of balancing her music and her family," Miranda said.

"Music and performing are my life, and I am looking forward to exploring different avenues in the future to expand my horizons."
