One of the most decorated country artists of her generation, Miranda Lambert just released her seventh studio album entitled Wildcard. The record is the lyricist’s homecoming back to her iconic sound and clever song-writing. To celebrate the longevity of her career and the release of the new record, Lambert and her band headed to iHeartRadio theater in downtown Manhattan to celebrate with an intimate group of fans. NYCountry Swag was there to celebrate her monumental feat.
The first thirty minutes was hosted by radio DJ, Brooke Taylor, as the songs and interview were broadcasted live on the radio station. Taylor and Lambert talked about her success as a female country artist, her favorite songs off the new project, as well as, the songstress’ responsibility as a mentor to other female artists in the industry, which she embraces fully.
During the broadcast, Lambert sang “Mama’s Broken Heart,” and three songs off the new LP, including “It All Comes Out in The Wash,” “Bluebird,” and “Tequila Does.” Although all four songs are fun and beautiful in their own right, “Bluebird” was easily the crowd’s favorite, illustrating Lambert’s sentiment that the song is “More of a feeling. It’s just special.”
Lambert really came into her own on stage, breathing a sigh of relief, when the recorded version of the segment was over. She delivered a killer thirty-minute set, playing several songs that spanned her career. According to the singer, “the fans’ feedback [is] all that matters.” Clearly her true fans approved, as the entire crowd sang each and every cut she sang at the top of their lungs.
The performance included songs like “Kerosene,” “Mess with My Head,” “Gunpowder and Lead,” “Heart Like Mine,” and one of her classics “Airstream Song.” Some special moments came towards the end of her set when she coined her new song “White Trash,” her ‘biography’. The song personified Lambert to a T, and fans clearly loved it. “Automatic,” another fan-favorite, had the intimate room feeling like it was Madison Square Garden.
Overall, Lambert proved, yet again, that she does it all for the fans and the betterment of women in country music. She’s a complete professional, and we have no doubt that she will find even more success with her upcoming ‘2020 Wildcard Tour’, kicking off this January in Tupelo, Mississippi.
