NASHVILLE, Tenn.Miranda Lambert and trio Pistol Annies (Lambert, Ashley Monroe, Angaleena Presley) are wrapping a whirlwind 2019 with year’s- and decade’s-best accolades rolling in from multiple media outlets.

Lambert’s latest album Wildcard is lauded as one of the year’s best by critics at Variety, GQ, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Slate, Stereogum, Sounds Like Nashville, The Boot, Saving Country Music, That Nashville Sound, and PopCrush. Album cuts “Mess With My Head” and “Locomotive,” as well as GRAMMY Award-nominated single “It All Comes Out in the Wash” and new radio single “Bluebird,” were named amongst 2019’s most elite by the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Stereogum, Sounds Like Nashville, and The Boot. The “country-rock masterpiece” (Rolling Stone) debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart in November, making Lambert one of only two artists to have her first seven albums debut at the chart’s pinnacle.

Proving why she is “the most riveting country star of her generation” (NPR), several of Lambert’s previous works were named the best of the 2010s, including 2011’s Platinum-certified Four The Record; 2014’s GRAMMY, CMA, and ACM Award-winning Platinum; and 2016’s Platinum-certified double album The Weight of These Wings. Triple-Platinum single “The House That Built Me” was named ACM Song of the Decade, and Billboard agreed, dubbing it the Best Country Song of the 2010s.

The Annies’ Gold-certified debut album, Hell on Heels, was also named to Billboard’s 25 Best Country Albums of the 2010s and Tennessean’s 25 Essential Nashville Albums of the 2010s rankings.
