Three years ago, Miranda Lambert took the plunge and flexed her acting chops. The country music songbird convincingly portrayed a struggling actress named Lacey Ford who is sexually assaulted by a reality TV producer in an episode of Law & Order: SVU titled “Father’s Shadow.” The producer’s 19-year-old son then creates an intense hostage situation after his father is accused of sexual assault, Detective Olivia Benson must use her personal experience to help defuse the situation.

Sneak Peek: Miranda Lambert on ‘Law & Order: SVU’
“This was really nerve-wracking all around, but also exciting, because I’ve never acted before at all, besides music videos, which I don’t have any lines in,” Lambert reflected with a chuckle. “And then playing an actress trying to get a role is like an audition — it was kind of like an audition within an audition. It was sort of my audition for myself, to see if I could even act at all. And also, my favorite show on Earth is SVU, so I definitely had those nerves going on that deal.”
Despite her nerves, she nailed it. After an acting break, it would be great to see the Texas native hit the small screen again! Check out more Miranda Lambert updates here.
