Since Lambert was a little girl, music had been an important part of her life. At the age of 10, she started competing in local talent shows and had even made an appearance on a Texas variety show called Johnny Highs Country Music Revue, which is the same show that helped Leanne Rhymes get her first big break.

A few years later, when Lambert still in high school, she started her own country music band called Texas Pride. That same year, Lambert had dropped out of high school to a full-time in music.

In 2001, she recorded her first independent CD. But it wasn’t until 2003 that Lambert finally got the recognition that she had been wishing for.

In 2003, Lambert appeared on a country music talent show called Nashville Star. The competitive show essentially worked the same way that American Idol did; the only difference that all of the contestants sang only country music.

Lambert ended up going far in the competition but she, not the winner. However, the allowed her to get recognized by several production companies and she ended up signing a contract with Sony Music shortly after leaving the show.

When did Miranda Lambert debut her first album?

Not long after Lambert signed with Sony Music, she came out with her first single entitled Me and Charlie Talking. The single was fairly popular, but her first album entitled Kerosene is what made Lambert’s popularity really started to grow. This album allowed her fans to see Lambert’s spunky and menacingly fun personality.

For the next several years, Lambert continued to make hit after hit. Some of her songs like Gunpowder and Lead and Mama’s Broken Heart helped people view a breakup in a more light-hearted way. And her other songs like Over You and Tin Man showed her side.

As far as her fans we’re concerned, it didn’t matter if songs we’re upbeat or sad. No matter the, almost every song that she came out with went straight to the top of the music charts. In her successful solo career, Lambert had also formed an all-girl band named Pistol Annies.

How many albums has Miranda Lambert made?

Throughout her career, Lambert has made seven solo albums. One of her most highly anticipated was The Weight of These Wings. That album was released in 2016 and was the album that Lambert had came out with since her divorce from fellow country music star,  Shelton. The Weight of These Wings an emotionally-charged album that number one on the Billboard country music charts and was number three the Billboard top 200 chart.

Lambert has also made three more albums with Pistol Annies. The trio’s first album, Hell On Heels, came out in 2011. Their second album, Annie Up, was made in 2013. And their last, Interstate Gospel, came out in 2018. 

If you add albums that Lambert made with Pistol Annies to her solo albums, then Lambert has made a grand total of 10 albums throughout her career.
