Reviewer: Miranda’s Crowd “Largely Female, Widely Lubricated”

Miranda likes songs about “shooting no-good men with her shotgun and setting them on fire,” paper writes.

Her hubby, Blake Shelton, has regularly extolled the virtues of having a few drinks. But it looks like Miranda Lambert's audience might be catching on, too, at least according to a review of her show Friday (April 20) in Minneapolis.

"Lambert held the largely female, widely lubricated, crowd in the palm of her hand for her entire 90-minute performance," the St. Paul Pioneer Press wrote in a particularly colorful review.

The writer had a theory as to why Miranda gets more women in her crowds.

"It helps that Lambert's favored song topics include setting no-good men on fire, shooting no-good men with her shotgun and shooting no-good men with her shotgun and then setting them on fire. She's Nashville's version of Alanis Morissette, but Lambert didn't chicken out after one irate album and start singing songs about finding inner peace in India."

And finally, the writer notes this:

"With a look that's more boozy barmaid than beauty queen, there's a real approachability to Lambert, too, and she managed to project that warmth to the far ends of the basketball arena."
