Miranda Lambert Named One of Time’s ‘100 Most Influential People’

Time Magazine’s list of the Most Influential People was released Monday (May 23) and Miranda Lambert was named one of the Top 100.

The country singer is listed in the “Innovator” category of the annual list.

Miranda’s friend and collaborator, Elle King, wrote an article on Time.com honoring the “If I Was a Cowboy” singer saying, “Miranda is a true country queen… from start to finish, she gives it her absolute all.

“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,” King 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.”

“It was Miranda’s idea to bring us all together — she wanted powerful female voices to front the whole thing. That’s her vibe: she’s all about making everybody feel welcome. And there is not one inauthentic hair on her head,” she adds.

Miranda shared her appreciation in a post on Twitter writing, “I’m so honored to join this year’s class of #Time100. I only ever wanted to sing and write songs and thanks to y’all I’ve gotten to do that and so much more.”

Miranda isn’t the first country artist to make the list, Kane Brown was named one of the Top 100 Influential People in 2021.

Other names from the entertainment world included on this year’s list are Pete Davidson, Andrew Garfield, Mila Kunis, Adele, Mary J. Blige, Miranda Lambert, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, and Wordle creator Josh Wardle.

Also on the list are President Joe Biden, Vladimir Putin, Volodymyr Zelensky, Ron DeSantis, Joe Rogan, Oprah Winfrey, Kris Jenner, and Rafael Nada.
