Lindale's Miranda Lambert Goes Top Three

Lindale's Miranda Lambert found herself on the short end of the vote Saturday night, but for the talented young woman, it's just a momentary setback.

Lindale's Lambert beat out over eight thousand other entries to make the finals of "Nashville Star" with a recording contract at stake. Lambert didn't win, but she did place third out of the twelve finalists chosen for the show.

Her next career move is already set. Lambert is headed for the "Nashville Star Concert Tour." She'll start that on Tuesday.
