Miranda Lambert Reminds Patty Loveless of Patty Loveless

Nobody doesn’t like Miranda Lambert these days. Her overnight success didn’t happen overnight, but she sure has a lot of fans who are behind her 100 percent. Even Patty Loveless, who’s been in the country world since her debut album in 1985, loves what Lambert’s doing. After doing a recent show with Lambert, Loveless said , “She kind of reminds me of myself a little bit. I was a little country, a little edgy. She’s turned out to be more hillbilly rock ’n’ roll and a mix of real country. That’s what I like hearing. Her nine CMA nominations are well deserved.” But for Loveless, herself, she says that the real big awards to her are just that the people like the music and like what she does.
