Miranda Lambert Wants to Follow in Dolly Parton’s Footsteps
With five nominations for the 2013 ACMs — including prestigious Entertainer of the Year — a Grammy, a celebrity husband and four albums, Miranda Lambert has had many accomplishments since her days on ‘Nashville Star.’ But she wants more, and she’s looking to the queen of country, Dolly Parton, as her metric for success.
According to CMT, Lambert sees bigger things ahead, and is inspired by the ‘I Will Always Love You’ songwriter. ”I did an interview about Dolly [Parton], and what I’ve always wanted is to just be an entrepreneur and just keep going and going.”
She adds, “Not necessarily physically keep going and going, but I just want to use my music and my career — and what I’ve built — for greater things and get bigger and bigger and bigger ideas and just always find things that inspire me.”
Lambert is well-known for her animal-loving passion, so maybe her widespread fame will advance animal advocacy in phenomenal ways, or perhaps she’ll dream up something big with her husband and fellow star, Blake Shelton. The ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’ hitmaker definitely has the ambition to think up terrific ideas, along with the emotional capability to touch the hearts of fans worldwide.
For now, Lambert can concentrate on growing her career and performing her heart out every night on the Locked and Reloaded Tour with fellow country star, Dierks Bentley. And, perhaps one day, fans will take a trip to Dollywood, and then head on over to Mirandawood.
