Garth Brooks Has High Praise for Miranda Lambert

The country icon has nothing but great things to say about her skills as a songwriter and entertainer.

Miranda Lambert is one of country music's biggest stars and the reigning ACM Female Vocalist of the Year. Her down-to-earth attitude and her songwriting skills appeal to a wide audience across different genres. It's not surprising country superstar Garth Brooks is also a fan.

Brooks talked to Taste of Country at the grand opening of the Child Life Zone at the Children's Hospital Colorado on March 18. He discussed some of his favorite young stars, including Lambert.

"I really like Miranda Lambert because she's understanding that she's putting together a catalog for the ages," said Brooks.

Anyone who has ever seen Brooks in concert knows he's an entertainer from start to finish. He said he likes that Lambert can perform a variety of styles, but still gets her songs on the radio. Brooks also said it is more difficult for performers now than it was for him when he first started out.

"I'm not sure it's as hard to get a deal, but I guarantee it's a thousand times harder to hang onto it. Because everything is disposable," he said.

Brooks is a co-founder of Teammates for Kids, which helped acquire the resources to open the new facility at the children's hospital.
