Miranda Lambert

Country music’s Female Vocalist of the Year, Miranda Lambert, is currently touring in promotion of her 2009 studio release, Revolution. This is Lambert’s latest of three consecutive records to debut at number one. Revolution produced her first number one single, “White Liar,” and earned the Academy of Country Music’s album of the year award.

Lambert realized her dream at an early age. She began writing music, and performing in local talent shows at the age of nine, but the talent show that gained her the most attention was in 2003. At nineteen, Lambert competed in the television game show, Nashville Star, where she finished in third place. She signed to a recording label that same year, and quickly eclipsed her former competition. (more…)

Sarah McLachlan

Organizers for the all-women concert tour, Lilith Fair, have announced the dates for the 2010 tour. Project co-founder, Sarah McLachlan, will join numerous others on a thirty-six city, two month tour of North America.

It was a sort of revolt against the music industry’s apparent lack of confidence in co-headlining females. Out of the success they found by featuring female guests along the tour, Lilith Fair was born. It has grown to be one of the highest grossing touring music festivals worldwide, and is recognized as a celebration of female musicians from every genre. (more…)
