Best Main Stage Set: Miranda Lambert

While the Band Perry gave her a run for her money earlier in the night, Miranda Lambert provided the LP Field performance of Friday evening, if not the entire festival. Dressed in black short-shorts, a sparkly bustier and silver boots that could have been purloined from Kiss' dressing room, our cover star tore through a set that leaned heavily on songs from her stellar new album, Platinum. Whether selling the punk of "Little Red Wagon," the rockabilly of "Priscilla" or the dreamy nostalgia of "Automatic," the newly toned and fit Mrs. Shelton was in such control that the not-so-surprise appearance by Carrie Underwood to wrap things up with "Somethin' Bad" felt almost unnecessary.
