Miranda Lambert headlined WGNA’s CountryFest 2011, but some people were wondering why? Oh sure, she’s got the hits, the talent and the voice to command headlining status, but she didn’t seem to be in the party-hearty spirit of the fest.

Early in her set when a bouncing beach-ball landed on the runway of the stage, Lambert wasted no time in running up and trying to stomp it out with her cowboy boots, telling the crowd of some 30,000 at the Altamont Fairgrounds that she doesn’t like that kind of stuff.

Boo hoo… Maybe she should have gone into opera, where that kind of diva behavior is, at the very least, tolerated, if not condoned.
