Billboard Calls Miranda "The Coolest Girl In Country"

Monday, October 24, 2011

Newly signed artists: often timid, pliable souls so happy to have a record deal that they can be easily molded into someone else's vision.


Sony Music Nashville chairman/CEO Gary Overton knew during his first conversation with Miranda Lambert she wasn't that kind of girl. "I remember having a lunch with her at the Palm before she made her first record for Sony," says Overton, who was heading EMI Music Publishing's Nashville division at the time. He was trying to sign Lambert as a songwriter.


"She said, 'I can tell you this: They're not going to tell me what music to record. I'm going to do it my way.' I said, 'Well, that's kind of not the way it happens on Music Row,' and she goes, 'Well, that's the way it's going to happen with me, or I'll just go back to Texas and make my living. I'm not going to change my music or anything else.'"
