The "'Everywhere' by Michelle Branch" Award for Most Underrated Record of the Year:

The Winner is: "Run (I'm a Natural Disaster) by Gnarls Barkley


The Bush Administration: A Musical Tribute

Miranda Lambert
"My songs talk about real things," says Miranda Lambert. "Things that I've been through or I've witnessed through my friends and family - even my parents' private investigation business. If I feel it, I can sing it and make anyone believe it."

Big talk from a small-town Texas girl, but Lambert's got the goods to back it up. The old-school passion and power of her nearly platinum-selling 2005 debut Kerosene took it to the top of both the country charts and the critics' polls.
