The spotlight is nothing new to Miranda Lambert. Fans are talking and responding with supportive messages on social media about everything from her heartfelt personal moments to her anniversary celebrations with husband Brendan McLoughlin, to her red carpet looks at the Grammy Awards.
Few of Miranda’s Instagram posts have drawn as much attention—or anxiety—as her announcement in March that she was leaving her Sony music label after 20 years.
Following her statement, “I can’t wait to see what the next adventure holds,” the 39-year-old singer received an overwhelming amount of love from her fans, along with some curiosity and worry.
Miranda Lambert is coming up with her new record label
You don’t have to worry about her taking off her western wear just yet. The “Somethin’ Bad” singer had actually already hinted at some exciting news when she made that announcement.
This past week, it was confirmed: Together, the GRAMMY Award-winning duo of Miranda Lambert and Jon Randall are launching Big Loud Texas, an imprint of Big Loud Records, their own record label.
Longtime friends and colleagues in the music business, Jon and Miranda, have announced their collaboration to sign and develop artists on the Big Loud Texas roster. Their cooperation goes beyond what they did together on the album The Marfa Tapes in 2021.
Miranda was thrilled about the partnership and said in a press release, “As a teenager chasing my dreams in the honky-tonks of Texas, Nashville seemed so far away.” I hear firsthand the amazing talent that our state produces every time I visit, and I feel obligated to support the efforts of more Texans to have their voices heard. I can’t wait to work with Big Loud and my friend Jon Randall to accomplish that. We are bringing even more Texas to town, so get ready, everyone!

In addition, singer-songwriter Jon expressed his gratitude for being “extremely blessed to share this full circle moment with one of my best pals, Miranda Lambert, and help some other dreamers chase their song around the world.” Jon will serve as president of Big Loud Texas.
Naturally, Miranda and Jon will provide excellent guidance to the artists joining Big Loud Texas, and they will be in wonderful company as members of Big Loud Records. With artists like Morgan Wallen, Lauren Alaina, Dallas Smith, Maggie Rose, and many more, the label has risen up the Billboard charts since its founding in 2015.
More about Miranda Lambert
American country music performer, songwriter, and guitarist Miranda Lambert was born in Longview, Texas. Her self-titled album was independently released at the beginning of 2001, marking her debut. Lambert rose to fame in 2003 when she placed third in the singing competition Nashville Star, which was broadcast on the USA Network.
Apart from her individual pursuits, she is a part of the Pistol Annies, a group she founded in 2011 alongside Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley. Lambert has won honors from major competitions like the Country Music Association Awards, the Grammy Awards, and the Academy of Country Music Awards.
She is notably the artist with the most Academy of Country Music Awards ever won in history.
In the US, Lambert’s second album and major-label debut, “Kerosene” (2005), was certified Platinum. “Me and Charlie Talking,” “Bring Me Down,” “Kerosene,” and “New Strings,” among other hit singles from the album, all peaked at number 40 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Her second album, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” topped the country songs chart with three singles (“Famous in a Small Town,” “Gunpowder & Lead,” and “More Like Her”) after this success.
The album was released in early 2007. In July 2008, “Gunpowder & Lead” became her first top 10 entry. “The House That Built Me” and “Heart Like Mine,” two tracks from Lambert’s third album “Revolution,” which was released in September 2009, peaked at number one on the Hot Country Songs chart.
