Singer Miranda Lambert performs onstage during the first ever Academy of Country Music New Artists' Show Party for a Cause, at the MGM Grand Conference Center on May 14, 2007 in Las Vegas.
Whether country girl or cover girl, Lambert - named Female Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country
Music for the last five years - is comfortable in her own skin, doing what she
wants, how she wants.
"We're not doing
surgery here," she told CBS News' Lee Cowan. "We're not saving lives, per se. We're
making music to make people feel good. And if we're not having fun, how is
anybody else gonna have fun listening to it or watching it?"
