MIRANDA LAMBERT SETS ACM RECORD WITH 5 CONSECUTIVE FEMALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR WINS

Track List Revealed For Upcoming New Album Platinum - Available For Pre-Order Now 

Toronto, ON – It was a big night in Las Vegas on Sunday for superstar Miranda Lambert. She performed her single “Automatic” for the first time on national television, she had the honor of paying tribute to her hero Merle Haggard on his prolific 50 years in country music by performing “Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down” and “I’m a Lonesome Fugitive” with George Strait, and she won her fifth consecutive Female Vocalist of the Year award, setting an ACM record for the most consecutive wins in that category. In all, Miranda took home three ACM honors, with the addition of wins for Single Record of the Year (“Mama’s Broken Heart”) and Vocal Event of the Year, together with Keith Urban, for “We Were Us.”  

"Tonight has not even begun to sink in yet. It probably won't for a week," said an exuberant Miranda. "I can't believe that this is my job. I got a picture with George Strait and Garth Brooks, I hung out with Trisha Yearwood and practically stalked Faith Hill, it was a great night," she laughed. 

With the June 3 release of her new album, Platinum, now less than two months away, Miranda is eager for fans to hear the album, which features several guest artists. As previously announced, Carrie Underwood joins on “Somethin’ Bad,” a song written by Chris DeStefano, Brett James and Priscilla Renea. “I’m a huge fan of Carrie Underwood. She’s such a badass singer,” Miranda said. “This rocker came across as I was listening to songs, and I decided to send it to her. To me, this song meshes our styles, you know? It gives her time to be ‘Before He Cheats’ Carrie, and it gives me time to take off running and jump to hit some of those high notes.” 

One of Miranda’s favorite bands, Little Big Town, guests on “Smokin’ and Drinkin’.” “I’m obsessed with Little Big Town,” said Miranda. “They got pitched this song, too, but I got it first. Karen told me, ‘You have a song I want!’ So I said, ‘If I cut it, will y’all sing on it?’ This was at the CMT Awards, just joking around in the dressing room. But when I went in to record it, I thought, ‘If Little Big Town wants to sing on my record, we are damn sure taking advantage of it!’ I can’t even imagine what it would sound like without them.”

Another guest appearance comes courtesy of The Time Jumpers on “All That’s Left.” “Another one of my favorite songs on the record … okay, they’re all my favorites!” said Miranda. “I went to see Beyoncé in Dallas, and I was driving home the next day by myself, listening to Bluegrass Junction on SiriusXM. I heard this song, and I immediately loved it. We decided to record it western swing and get cool harmonies, and have fiddles, which meant we had to have The Time Jumpers on it. They’re the most talented people in the whole world, in one band. It’s ridiculous.”

Platinum will be released June 3 and can be preordered now on iTunes http://smarturl.it/mlplatinum.

Out Among The Stars Receiving Rave Reviews from Critics and Fans
“…perhaps one of the most revealing Johnny Cash records ever made.” –VILLAGE VOICE

* * * * *

OUT AMONG THE STARS (Columbia/Legacy), the remarkable, lost Johnny Cash album recently discovered by John Carter Cash and comprised of 12 previously unreleased songs that were recorded thirty years ago, has debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart and #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart, #2 on the Nielsen Canadian SoundScan Charts. Additionally, the album has debuted top 5 in multiple markets around the world.

Since its release on March 25 the album has earned great media acclaim and fans worldwide have demonstrated the enduring interest in the legacy of Johnny Cash. 

Here’s a sampling of what the critics are saying about OUT AMONG THE STARS:

“"Stars" holds up among Cash's best work -- even if it took 30 years to officially complete it.” –BILLBOARD

"Crucial for all Cash fans." - THE GUARDIAN  

 “Cash breezes through a well-selected series of songs, mixing the sentimental ("Tennessee") with the spiritual ("I Came To Believe") and the humorous ("If I Told You Who It Was"). “  - ASSOCIATED PRESS

“… the dozen previously unreleased recordings on Out Among The Stars show an iconic voice in fine and sober form…” –USA TODAY

“The idiosyncratic album ambles easily among genres, from bluegrass (“Don’t You Think It’s Come Our Time”) and country hymns (“I Came To Believe”) to classic Cash (“She Used To Love Me A Lot”) creating a well-curated reminder for audiences reared on Cash’s American Recordings work that he could sing anything and make it resonate.” 
–TIME MAGAZINE

“Out Among the Stars stands firmly shoulder-to-shoulder with his finest recordings. No mere compilation cobbled together for sales, but a coherent, strong contribution to his catalog.”  -ESQUIRE

“Cash’s flawed humanity is one of the reasons why so very many people were drawn to him, and why we remember him still. This newest addition to his ever-expanding body of posthumous work, an album originally recorded 30 years ago but never released at the time, provides additional context for one of the strangest and most flawed periods of his career, and offers up a few damn good tunes in the bargain.” –PITCHFORK

"A fantastic 'lost' album…reveals a performer at the top of his game…a momentous discovery." - THE SUN  

“Heard in what would have been Cash’s 82nd year, the songs find this icon embracing Music Row conventions without losing his soul.” –NY DAILY NEWS

“Finding any previously unheard Johnny Cash material is cause for celebration – but an entire album's worth?” –ROLLING STONE
“…this new collection features the man in his relative splendor…” –YAHOO! MUSIC

“‘She Used to Love Me a Lot’ contains all the hallmark brilliance of Cash. The honest simplicity and deep conviction of his delivery shines through.” –CMT.COM

“... it’s laid-back and entertaining, a nice reminder of Cash’s goofy good humor: “If I Told You Who It Was” and “Baby Ride Easy” (a duet with June Carter Cash) are high-spirited and jokey, offsetting serious stuff like “I Came To Believe” and “She Used To Love Me a Lot.” Nostalgia for ’80s Johnny — it’s about time.” –NY POST

The tracks on OUT AMONG THE STARS were originally recorded in Nashville, Tennessee at Columbia Studios in 1981 and 1111 Sound Studios in 1984 and produced by Billy Sherrill, the architect of the "countrypolitan" sound in Nashville at the time.  The collection includes duets with June Carter Cash and Waylon Jennings—Johnny also worked with an expanded ensemble featuring a young Marty Stuart on guitar and mandolin and Nashville A-Team members Jerry Kennedy (guitar), Pete Drake (steel guitar), Hargus "Pig" Robbins (piano) and Henry Strzelecki (bass).
