Miranda Lambert’s major label debut album Kerosene was released 16 years ago today (3/15). In celebration of her anniversary of the project, we take a look at Miranda during her debut year in Nashville in 2005.
After placing third in the television competition, "Nashville Star" in 2004, Miranda first signed with Epic Nashville in 2004.
In October 2005, the title track of "Kerosene" was released as the album's third single, becoming the highest-debuting single of the week on October 8, 2005.
Eleven of the twelve tracks on "Kerosene"were either entirely written or co-written by Miranda herself.
Only the title track "Kerosene" was a major hit on the album for Lambert, peaking at number 15.
The music's tone is of "Kerosene" is set to a "love gone wrong" theme, however Lambert said that she did not draw this inspiration from her personal life. She stated that she just "...loved a lot" and is "...one of those people who love very deeply when I do."
"Kerosene" sold 40,000 copies within its first week and debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, as well as number 18 on the Billboard 200.
Natalie Hemby, who later was part of the Highwomen, sang background vocals on "Kerosene."
