Miranda Lambert just dropped new music, announced a forthcoming collaborative album, revealed plans for a Nashville bar, and is set to perform at The GRAMMYs…
In a series of posts first shared with fans early last week, Miranda Lambert teased some upcoming news that she would be joining forces with fellow songwriters Jack Ingram and Jon Randall to release a collection of songs entitled The Marfa Tapes, due out May 7th. The record is a culmination of intimate and raw songs that the threesome wrote and recorded together in the tiny town of Marfa, Texas. To introduce the project, the group have released the first track off the record, a song called “In His Arms.”
Like the other tunes from the upcoming album, “In His Arms” was recorded and written when the trio visited the middle-of-nowhere town back In November. The songwriting haven has become a profound location for personal growth, love, trust, and friendship. “In His Arms” is pure poetry set to lovely instrumentals. The song is all about missing a man, who she only knew from a brief encounter. The sentiment is the perfect introduction to the rest of the record.
“There’s something singular that happens in that moment of collaboration and creation, something you can never really recreate in the studio,” said Ingram in a recent press release. “Our hope with this album was to share a little bit of that magic with people.”
In addition to the new music news, Lambert also revealed plans for her very own bar on Broadway in Nashville’s famed downtown area. Repping for the girls, the establishment named Casa Rosa, marks the first bar and restaurant on Broadway to be opened by a female country singer. Casa Rosa is set to open in summer 2021 and will feature four floors of live entertainment, including a rooftop bar.
Casa Rosa, which translates to “Pink House” will feature tufted pink boots, lots of rhinestones, memorabilia from Lambert’s career, including costumes from music videos, guitars, and more. On the menu will be Tex-Mex options like tacos and of course, tequila.
The award-winning singer shared the news with fans via Instagram, adding “I’m so excited I’ll have a honky tonk with my name on it! Tacos, tequila and tufted pink booths…what else can a girl ask for?! This place is special to me and I’m happy to be representing the ladies here in Music City. See y’all down there @casarosanashville soon!”
That’s not all for exciting happenings in the singer’s professional life. It was also recently revealed that Lambert will be performing this Sunday, March 14th at The GRAMMYs where she is nominated for three awards including Best Country Solo Performance, Best Country Song for “Bluebird” and Best Country Album for Wildcard. Tune in to the 63rd Annual show at 8PM ET on CBS or stream it live via GRAMMY.com.
