Miranda Lambert pays homage to her Texas descent in her latest release “Tequila Does” off of her forthcoming album Wildcard; her first collaboration with producer Jay Joyce. The single compliments the singer’s catalogue well by commemorating the steel guitar and a propulsive drum reverberation. The country-rock consumed track marks the seventh song to be premiered ahead of the album’s release date on November 1st.
Lambert exploits all expectations unmet by men but kissed by personified poison who has the ability to never let anybody down. She sings: “Cause he don’t love me like tequila does / Nobody can / He don’t give me that border town buzz / Like tequila does / I’d sure like to find / A cowboy tonight / To get me back in the saddle / But the boys around here, drink domestic beer / They’re all hat, no cattle / But I won’t sleep alone / ‘Cause my old pal Patron, is taking me home tonight.”
“The House That Built Me” artist stated in a recent press release, “‘Tequila Does’ is country. And country music makes me happy,” said Lambert of the track. “No matter how rock or edgy or scorned you can get, when you come back to a country song with a steel guitar, it makes my soul feel like it’s on fire.”
Written by Lambert, Jack Ingram and Jon Randall, “Tequila Does” follows singles “It All Comes Out in the Wash,” “Bluebird,” Locomotive,” ”Mess With My Head, ”Pretty Bitchin’” and “Way Too Pretty For Prison.”
“Tequila Does” has been a fan favorite on Lambert’s Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour with supporting acts Tenille Townes, Elle King, Ashley McBryde, Caylee Hammack, Pistol Annies and Maren Morris each on selected dates running through November 22nd. In early 2020, Lambert kicks off the Wildcard Tour with supporting guests Cody Johnson and LANCO.
