While Kerosene may be Miranda Lambert‘s first album released by a major label, very few people know that the country music superstar actually released her very first one over 15 years ago.

Texas As Hell

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 temper 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 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.

A Life-Changing Career

Since then, this blonde beauty has become one of country music’s most well-known stars. With two Grammy Awards and nine ACM Awards under her belt, there’s no question that she has left a powerful mark on the genre. Lambert has gone on to release 6 studio albums with a series of singles making their way onto the top of the charts.

Although her latest work isn’t solo after reuniting with her girl band, Pistol Annies, we can’t wait to see what she has in store next.
