Miranda Lambert Calls Out ‘B.S.’ Disparity In Female vs. Male Country Radio Play

Miranda Lambert is not impressed by the state of radio play for female country artists.

In a new interview for Redbook, the country icon called the way country radio stations tend to favour male artists.

“It’s B.S., straight up! Carrie Underwood still struggles, and that just blows my mind because she’s got a million hits and she’s Carrie Freakin’ Underwood,” Lambert said. “I tell them at the radio stations, ‘Just play one of us; it doesn’t have to be me. Then we all win.’ I’ll fight for it until I can’t no more.”

Lambert also talked about her own relationship with fame and the music industry. “I’m not actually a very good famous person at all. I hate cameras,” she said. “I don’t love the spotlight. It was a big shocker to me that the music business is 80% business and 20% music. I was like, ‘I didn’t know I signed up for all this other stuff.'”

What Lambert really likes are the simple things, like staying home at night with some reality TV. “‘Shark Tank’ and yoga pants, and I’m the happiest person. I watch ‘Tiny House Nation’ on a Friday night, and I’m like, ‘This is it! Frozen pizza. Woo!'”
