While Kerosene may be this country music superstar’s first album released by a major label, Miranda Lambert released an entire album stacked with original songs over 15 years ago very few people know about.
Possessing that same country girl charm, teenage Lambert delivered a sassy ode to her home state with fiery “Texas as Hell.” While her voice has become much stronger since the release of her 2001 album, the bold lyrics are pure Lambert.
“I’m Texas as hell/ Mean and ornery/ I don’t need no loud mouth comin’ on to me,” sings Lambert. “My tempter gets hotter in red white and blue blazes/ You know dog-gone well everybody can tell I’m Texas as hell.”
At only 18 years old, Lambert released her self-titled debut album as an independent album completely paid for by herself. After gaining attention from music executives following her third-place win on Nashville Star, the country singer landed a contract with Epic Nashville in 2004.
