Miranda Lambert Looks Back At Her First Time On Radio

(Radio.com) In the series Radio Feedback, Radio.com ask artists to wax nostalgic on the first time they heard themselves on the radio. Miranda Lambert has come a long way since hearing her first single, "Me and Charlie Talking," on the radio.

A song she wrote with her father (Rick Lambert) and Heather Little, "Me and Charlie Talking" was released in 2004 as the lead single off what would become her major label debut, Kerosene.

The song, which has Lambert looking back nostalgically on a first love, was truly a family affair. She not only wrote it with her father, she then shared the experience of hearing it on the radio for the first time with her mother.

"My mom was driving, I was in the passenger seat," Lambert recalls. "There were a couple friends behind in the backseat, when I first heard my song on the radio and we pulled over. I think it was in the spring, and we pulled over and got out of the car and were running around the car."

Lambert says it was important to share that experience with her mother. "My mom, she always says, 'I'm her first fan.' She is. She's my No. 1 fan. She is so supportive. It was fun to share that moment with her." Read more here.
