Classic Music by candlelight

On the heels of situation a record for the first female artist to score nine Country Music Association nominations this September, Miranda Lambert carry on her success with her first DVD, Revolution: Live By Candlelight. The six songs acoustic collection was released on Oct. 12 and follows up her 2009 studio album, Revolution.

One of the tracks she sings on the DVD is "Love Is Looking For You," one of Lambert's own favorites from her 2005 debut album, Kerosene. Filmed in a close setting in Nashville, TN, the screen only shows Lambert performing with her band and being surrounded by candles, which actually set off the fire terror while filming.

Lambert, whose songs tend to be clever and unruly with tracks like "Gunpowder and lead" from her second album Crazy Ex Girlfriend, in its place opens the on-screen concert on a much softer side. Revolution: Live By Candlelight turns into amazing you would hear in Starbucks: good, old mellow tunes that warm the heart.

Lambert talks openly during the videos, as if talking to a best friend on what enthused the songs that gained her critical acclaim. "I think Jesus would like hanging out with our band," Lambert says earlier than she sings "Heart Like Mine," on the DVD. It can easily be this generation's version of Joan Osborne's 1995 hit "One of Us," because it portrays her personal interpretation of what God and heaven would be like.
"White Liar," which became Lambert's first highest-chart single reaching at number two on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs, is her strongest performance on the place. "Love Song" is another beautiful song that truly shows "real love" as she clarifies it, smiling and talkative when referring to her fiancé and fellow country artist, Blake Shelton. On another note, "Dead Flowers" is despite to the caliber of her other songs. Still the DVD is quite strong and Lambert truly delivers.

For her first acoustic DVD, Lambert gives it her all to find a way to attach to her fan base. Six songs don’t justify the talent that Lambert has in a music genre that is currently led by an American Idol Carrie Underwood and a teenage sensation Taylor Swift. Lambert herself was a finalist on the 2003 period of the short lived, "Nashville Star."

More prominently, Lambert was named the third female country singer in history to have three records debut at number one on the Billboard country albums charts. Clearly a talented musician, Miranda Lambert opens her music to her fans in an opened visual on this DVD, now available to any country music fan.
