Miranda Lambert goes 'Platinum' on 'The View,' 'Chelsea Lately' and Craig Ferguson

Sony

There's no denying the real rebel in country music's reigning royal pair. Miranda Lambert has become Nashville's wildest, twangiest card — hell-raisin' dervish onstage, sonically restless innovator on record — and routinely makes hubby Blake Shelton's Boys 'Round Here Skoal-and-Schlitz shtick seem rote. The 30-year-old Texas singer-songwriter is edgy with her Pistol Annies side crew, but she's become downright revolutionary as a solo star. New album Platinum, released Tuesday, is her most genre-bending work yet. Fuzzed and distorted in places, pop and punk in others, the album swings from old-timey saloon stomp (Gravity Is a B----) to indie-rock lament about insecurity (Bathroom Sink) to roots-rockin' hip-shaker detailing her sudden similarity to Elvis' bride (the gossip-juicer Priscilla).

You can read our FULL REVIEW OF PLATINUM HERE. Then tune in when Miranda -- her fans call her "Ran" -- continues to work the late-night (and morning) circuits. She'll be on The View this Friday (6/6), Chelsea Lately next Tues (6/11) and then The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson on Thursday (6/12).
