East Texas has even more to proud of -- Miranda Lambert's latest album, 'Four the Record,' has been certified gold, signifying sales of more than half a million records. Not surprised, are we? It's Miranda's fastest-selling album so far and the critics love it. The Boot reports:

The project made our Top Country Albums of 2011 list, along with year-end lists compiled by Rolling Stone, USA Today, People and several other publications.

'Four the Record' also makes Miranda's career one for the record books. It's the singer's fourth consecutive album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. That's a feat no other country artist has ever achieved with their first four albums in the 48-year history of the charts.

Way to go, Miranda! East Texas loves ya'!
