Miranda Lambert Gets Her Second Consecutive #1
June 2, 2010 at 6:32 AM (PT)
Congrats to COLUMBIA/NASHVILLE VP/Promotion JIMMY RECTOR, Nat’l Dir./Promotion MIKE WILSON and the rest of the BIG RED promotion crew, as MIRANDA LAMBERT’s “The House That Built Me,” tops the MEDIABASE Country Singles chart this week. This is MIRANDA’s second consecutive number one hit, following “White Liar,” from her award-winning third album, “Revolution.”
While MIRANDA did not write “The House That Built Me,” the song has a special place in the hearts of LAMBERT and her parents. LAMBERT said: “When I was about 5-years-old, my parents had their own business. And, you know, when the phone stops ringing and you're self-employed...the phone stops ringing. So we had to move and live with my uncle for a while. Then we got to rent this huge farmhouse that was dilapidated, I mean, it was in terrible shape. But it had so much potential and my mom could see that. We didn’t have a lot, but we had everything we needed and I don't feel like I ever missed out on one thing. I really learned valuable lessons at a young age and it means a lot to my parents because that made me who I am. 'The House That Built Me' describes that perfectly. I feel like the fact that I recorded this song lets my parents know that they did a good job with me."
