The album also spun off her first two Hot Country Songs leaders.

On Oct. 17, 2009, Miranda Lambert's Revolution debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart. Her third studio set marked her third straight leader on the list, following Crazy Ex-Girlfriend in 2007 and Kerosene in 2005.

Revolution generated five singles, including Lambert's first two Hot Country Songs No. 1s – "The House That Built Me" and "Heart Like Mine" – plus the No. 2-peaking "White Liar" and the top 40 hits "Only Prettier" and "Dead Flowers."

In 2010, the LP was named album of the year by both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association.

Lambert has posted six consecutive No. 1 debuts on Top Country Albums, second only to Carrie Underwood's seven. She'll have a chance to tie the streak with Wildcard, due Nov. 1. The album's lead single, "It All Comes Out in the Wash," ranks at No. 22 on the Hot Country Songs chart (dated Oct. 19).

Meanwhile, Lambert is continuing her Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour, which runs through Nov. 23 in Greensboro, North Carolina.
