    My girlfriend and I went out to Pechanga to see Miranda Lambert a couple of weeks ago; man, what a great show! For a gal who's only 24, she really puts on a good show. Very good singing, and man, she's a cutie......and her band is top notch. Two guitar players, one playing mostly a goldtop LP with P90s and the other playing mostly a Tele. He also played acoustic and a dobro. Very tight band, great tones from both. If you like some great country, and I use that term loosely, see one of her shows. One of the better shows we've seen in a while. Stood the entire time. I'll post some pics as soon as I download them from my camera.

    I believe the killer Eddie Perez is playing with her now, late of Dwight Yoakam and the Mavericks.

    Debatable. :boxer

    She's no Julianne Hough, but I don't think Julianne writes her own material (or parts thereof) like Miranda.

    Actually that's not true; her guitar players are Alex Weedan and Scotty Wray....

    Not the best picture of Julianne I've ever seen either.:huh

    Miranda and Julianne are in totally different classifications of musicianship and performing. Julianne is cookie-cutter country. Nice to look at, pleasing to the ear as well, but definitely NOT going to be taking any chances with her music. Miranda is more rootsy, more honky-tonk, and probably has more control over what she releases.

    You sure that is up to date?

    I've seen her twice now on TV with Perez.

    Her singles do not support this point.

    Kerosene is a straight forward rock song. Me and Charlie Talkin' is MOR lite-country.

    Well, I saw her two weeks ago, and those were the two guys playing with her. I went to her site to find out who her guitar players were, and the pics matched the names, so........

    Ya'll got close....Eddie is playing with Julianne Hough. I met him after she played a show with Brad Paisley here in So Cal. He's a great player and was rockin a 65 SOHO (hi-powered version).

    PS - Alex Weedan's tone smokes in Miranda's "Gun Powder and Lead" video (the one with Jack Ingram as a guest).
