Miranda Lambert Opts for the School of Rock

Miranda Lambert on tourMiranda Lambert says music IS her education.

“My college was gettin’ on a motor home that was like a 1985 model and going around the country,” she told Dial-Global. “That was my college. People always asked me, ‘Well, what’s your back-up plan?’ A lot of older people always go, ‘You need to go to college.’ I’m like, ‘Why?’ I mean, ‘So I can fail and waste $60,000 of my parents’ money that they don’t have?’ I just knew that it wasn’t for me. I just figure now, if I keep doing this, I’ll have a retirement and my back-up plan is to go be a back-up singer for somebody or be a songwriter and get a mailbox check.”

Find out how that education is getting put to good use by catching her live on Miranda Lambert’s 2008 Concert Tour.Country Music Photo Gallery
