Miranda Lambert

Since she was first discovered on a CMT talent contest show five years ago, the wholly nuts and yet unexpectedly popular new-school country megastar Miranda Lambert has served as a counterpoint of sorts to the sugary sentimentality of Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift, embracing her redneck roots on albums like the aptly titled Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, wherein she posited that "little girls are made of gunpowder and lead." Snails and puppy dog tails don't stand a chance.
