Miranda Lambert can no longer get lost in the crowd.
All kinds of changes have come for country music’s rising star in the last year — No. 1 songs, six Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music wins, Grammy nominations and performances, and her engagement to Blake Shelton.
Oh, and she cannot go shopping anymore.
“Blake and I both realized, we went Christmas shopping and we can’t ever do that again,” Lambert, 27, said in an interview with The Associated Press last week before a party to celebrate her recent success.
“It’s almost how you can see yourself on TV and you can win awards and you can hear about all the great accolades you’re getting, but then it doesn’t really come into your normal everyday life until you’re somewhere like (the store) Academy and a hundred people all the sudden are crowded around you,” she said.
Lambert can expect her profile to rise again Sunday during the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, airing live on CBS from the Staples Center (8 p.m. EST). She’ll perform her poignant hit “The House That Built Me” before the largest audience of her career. She’s up for best country album for “Revolution,” best female country vocal performance for “House” and best country collaboration on Dierks Bentley’s “Bad Angel” with Jamey Johnson.
“House” also is nominated in the general song of the year category and for best country song, awards that would go to songwriters Allen Shamblin and Tom Douglas.
“I think that country music in general is more popular music now,” Lambert said. “It’s really kind of crossed over as a genre because I think people really know a lot more about it, and pop and rock people are trying to come do country music. So I think it’s just all kind of mushing together, and I love that.”

Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton and Lady Antebellum join Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, The Band Perry, Sheryl Crow, Martina McBride, Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire, Darius Rucker and Keith Urban as the first artists announced as performers during the nightly concerts at LP Field during CMA Music Festival.
The CMA Music Festival will celebrate its 40th anniversary when it takes over the downtown Nashville campus for four days on Thursday-Sunday, June 9-12.
“This is an excellent collection of superstar artists to launch 2011 CMA Music Festival, continuing the legacy started 40 years ago by artists such as Chet Atkins, Waylon Jennings, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, and Tammy Wynette at the first Fan Fair,” said Steve Moore, CMA Chief Executive Officer.

Miranda Lambert knows how to throw a party. On Friday, country music’s it girl — and Blake Shelton’s fiancée — threw a silver-themed bash, complete with towers of cupcakes (and fried macaroni and cheese) at Icon in the Gulch, in celebration of multiple platinum milestones in her career.
Lambert was honored for selling more than 1 million copies of all three of her albums — Kerosene, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and her latest, Revolution — and several singles.
“It’s almost like an overnight success takes 10 years,” Lambert said before the party. “I didn’t sign a record deal until six years ago, but I’ve been doing this for 10 years. All of a sudden, 2010 comes and it was like, ‘Oh my gosh’ — it all happens at once. I’ve always been afraid of that, shooting to the top and then falling off all at once.”
Lambert scored her first two No. 1 songs in 2010 with “White Liar” and “The House That Built Me.” “The House That Built Me” went on to win CMA song of the year.
“I hope I’ve built strong enough of a foundation for a career that it will keep building,” she said. “I’m shooting for building an empire.”
But, she said, while she realizes she’s a star, there’s no way she’ll get caught up in all the success. Her mama and Shelton won’t allow it.
“I think I do get numb or jaded at times,” Lambert said. “I might be short with somebody, and my mom will be like, ‘Oh, you need to be nice.’ And I’ll be like, ‘Oh, crap, you’re right.’ It’s a lot of pressure. Girls have times of the month when they’re just in a mad mood. I’m also learning to protect my own personal time because I think keeping a balance will keep me sane forever.”
Part of that personal time includes eating supper every night with Shelton at his mom’s house near her own home in rural Oklahoma.
“I would recommend to any star whose life is driving them crazy, move to the boonies,” she said. “When we get (home) and I see my dogs and my farm animals and just hang out, it just so reminds me of why I exist in the world, and that if the music goes away I will still have people that I love in my life.”

A stream of carefully-screened guests took elevators to the ninth-floor party room of Nashville’s ritzy Icon condominium complex Friday night (Feb. 4) to celebrate Miranda Lambert’s career-spanning musical successes.
From the metallic-tinged guitar that stood atop a pyramid of gourmet cupcakes on a table at the entryway to Lambert’s shimmering, form-fitting dress, the party’s theme was “platinum,” a term in music-industry parlance that signifies a million-selling single or album.
While they waited for the guest of honor to arrive, the celebrants grazed on mini fried chicken fritters on herbed brioche buns, mini corndogs, macaroni and cheese balls, crudité shots with parmesan ranch dressing (vegetable sticks) and the aforementioned cupcakes.
“This is an incredibly special night,” proclaimed Gary Overton, head of Lambert’s label, Sony Music Nashville, when he took the stage to introduce her. “We have multiple awards for Miranda.”
Indeed, he did. The first he presented her was a platinum digital single plaque for sales of “Gunpowder & Lead.” Next came the platinum digital single for “The House That Built Me.”
“There’s so many,” Lambert pouted in mock dismay.
At this point, Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin, who wrote “The House That Built Me,” came forward to give her a painting of a house inspired by the song. “You can put that on your bus, maybe,” said Douglas.
Overton had two more trophies to hand out: a platinum album for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and a plaque with images of all three of Lambert’s albums to date — Kerosene, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Revolution — each of which has sold or shipped 1 million copies.
Lambert’s manager, Marion Kraft, stood beside her as she acknowledged members of her support team standing in the crowd. She beckoned producer Frank Liddell, to the stage for special recognition.
Lambert said that when she asked Liddell to produce her first album, he replied, “You’re making the worst mistake of your career.” This didn’t deter her. “I told him I don’t care. I don’t have a career anyway.”
Obviously, things have changed.
