Lambert adds NY Times best selling author to the resume

Thursday, May 4, 2023 – Miranda Lambert can add New York Times Best Selling author to her resume as "Y'ALL EAT YET? Welcome to the Pretty B*tchin' Kitchen lands" is at number three on the paper's How To, Advice & Miscellaneous Books list.

"OMG y'all. I just got a call from my publishers that 'Y'ALL EAT YET? Welcome to the Pretty B*tchin' Kitchen' is number three on the New York Times Best Selling list," Lambert said. "I can't actually believe that. I'm so grateful and just I can't believe it. It's for my Nonny in Heaven. She's partying tonight; I know it. And I'm just beside myself that people would want to hear our stories and join our sisterhood. This is crazy. So, thanks to everybody who bought it and who is reading it. I love y'all - welcome to the tribe."

Written with music critic Holly Gleason, the book merges memoir with a cookbook to celebrate multi-generational female friendship. Tracing her journey from childhood to superstardom, Lambert marks the moments with recipes that include Whiskey Cupcakes, French Toast Casserole, Heidi's Spiced Hot Crackers, Bev's Chicken Salad, Nonny's Banana Pudding and "the one thing that'll get the ring" The Loaf.

"I think everybody's life is marked by those delicious flavors of what you ate during special times," Lambert said. "The memories, the stories and the things you eat kind of mingle together, or maybe the meals and the snacks are the things that you can go back to that make the memories come back to life."

"I just know: there's an awful lot of love in Neicy's gumbo, Vicki's deviled eggs, my Dad's green beans, Nonny's tuna salad. You take a bite, and it all comes rushing back. In a world that moves so fast, where we're often just trying to keep up with ourselves, the power of sitting down to something made by hand – often while you're sitting around a table of people you love – is a superpower we forget."

"So, I wanted to make it easy. Put that superpower in reach of all the bad ass girls and young women, guys on their own and people thinking they can't. Because I promise: if I can, you can. If you can't, you know someone who can. And there are all kinds of stories of parties, Airstreams and cocktails, too."

CD reviews for Miranda Lambert

CD review - Platinum Cynics might think that Miranda Lambert is presumptuous in entitling her fifth disc "Platinum" and, in effect, assuming she'll get her plaque for selling 1 million units. But Lambert says that isn't the case, but more a matter of style, looks and feel. Lambert also wrote and discovered a lot of excellent songs that fit her quite well in an album in which she exposes her inner self as she matures. That may never more apparent than in the country rocker Lambert wrote ...
CD review - Revolution Every once in a while an album comes along that restores your faith in mainstream country music. Miranda Lambert's "Revolution" is just such a recording. It's not revolutionary, as the title might suggest. Instead, this CD is chock full of topnotch songs that are both memorable and sincere and never sound slick or overproduced. (Come to think of it, such old school values as these may in fact be revolutionary around Nashville). Lambert vocalizes a bit like a little girl at ...
CD review - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Even though it sounds like a cliche from the big book of country songwriting, the truth is that, when the timing's right, a loser can end up being the biggest winner of all. Today's object lesson comes from Miranda Lambert and her sophomore album, the follow-up to her 2005 near-platinum debut, "Kerosene." Imagine for a moment if the then-19-year-old had actually taken the crown in 2003's Nashville Star and then been forced into the studio within weeks to be primped and ...
