Coming up as a teenage country singer, Miranda Lambert was disenchanted by the pop music style that Nashville starmakers tried to push on her. Instead, Lambert blazed her own groove down the well-worn path of traditional country music and defined herself with hits such as “Gunpowder and Lead,” “The House That Built Me” and “Little Red Wagon.” Her songs are laced with social defiance and sassy female bonding, as in the lyrics of her latest single. “If you paint your nails while you cut your loss / If you like acting like you’re the boss … We should be friends.”

Friday, February 24. $37.75-57.75, 7pm. John Paul Jones Arena, 295 Massie Rd. 800-745-3000.
