“Time” magazine is out with their annual Time 100 List of the Most Influential People for 2022, and Miranda Lambert made the list this year. The singer is honored in the Innovators section of the list.
"I’m so honored to join this year’s class of #TIME100," Miranda shared on Instagram. "I only ever wanted to sing and write songs and thanks to y’all I’ve gotten to do that and so much more. Thank y’all for being on this journey with me💖."
Miranda is honored in the magazine with a write up from her friend and collaborator Elle King.
“Not a lot of people will take your hand, nudge you right into the spotlight, and share it with you — especially if they’ve already spent decades as one of country music’s most acclaimed performers and songwriters," she writes, "But that’s exactly what Miranda Lambert did in 2019, when she asked me to be a part of her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour, during which she brought along a new generation of artists to share her stage."
Elle adds, “It was Miranda’s idea to bring us all together…That’s her vibe: she’s all about making everybody feel welcome. And there is not one inauthentic hair on her head.”
- The mag’s annual Time 100 Gala is set to go down June 6th, with performances by Miranda and Mary J. Blige, with portions to air on ABC.
