Last Friday, Miranda Lambert debuted her sprawling, two-disc new album The Weight of These Wings, in which the singer-songwriter excels in her balladry, outlaw country leanings and self-deprecating humor as she offers an in-depth examination of herself and her relationships. It also shows incredible growth for the "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" singer, moving past revenge to find something more cutting and tender. In honor of her new release, we asked our readers to vote for their favorite Miranda Lambert songs. Here are the results.

“Gunpowder and Lead”

Like the Dixie Chicks' "Goodbye Early" and Martina McBride's "Independence Day" before it, Lambert embodies an abused wife who gets revenge on her violent husband. Off her sophomore album Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, the fiery, brash "Gunpowder and Lead" ended up becoming her first Top 10 hit.

“The House That Built Me”

Originally intended for ex-husband Blake Shelton, Lambert snatched up the tender ballad about returning to one's own roots, and it has since become a signature song of hers. The touching song, co-penned by Tom Doublas and Allen Shamblin, ended up becoming Lambert's first Number One single and won her a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.
