Miranda is one of country’s hottest stars right now, thanks to a series of hit songs including “The House That Built Me,” “Over You,” “Kerosene,” “Fastest Girl in Town,” and her most recent single “Mama’s Broken Heart.” She has a “fiery personality” and is, as one of our panel of music experts notes, “the girl that girls wish they had the guts to be.”
In addition to her solo career she’s a member of the Pistol Annies, and of course she’s also married to another country superstar, Blake Shelton.
Check out these and other insights from our Radio.com panel of experts–and see what led to Miranda’s ACM nomination–in this installment of Inside the Entertainer of the Year.
