Miranda Lambert Drops New Song “If I Was A Cowboy”

Miranda Lambert’s new song “If I Was A Cowboy” is out today, October 15th, on all streaming platforms. Learn more about the brand new track below.

We love it when superstar, Miranda Lambert digs her heels into her country roots. Clearly still inspired by her Texas uprising, Lambert leans into The Marfa Tapes sound and style on her brand new single. Today, the singer-songwriter releases “If I Was A Cowboy.”

On the slow jam, Lambert manages to give us sass and vulnerability at the same time. The song is all about girl power, confidence, and openness in a less traditional way. The singer dubs herself the ‘queen cowboy’ on this enticing new track. Written by Lambert with Jesse Frasure, the imaginative song is one you will instantly get attached to.

“Wanted by the law, but the law don’t apply to me // If I was a cowboy, I’d be wild and free // Rolling around these towns like tumbleweeds // I’d be a legend at lovin’ and leavin’ // Sippin’ on whiskey and numbin’ up my feeling // You thought the west was wild, but you ain’t saddled up with me”

“If I Was A Cowboy” comes just before Lambert releases her Christmas record with her girl group, Pistol Annies. Hell of a Holiday is slated for release on October 22nd.

Here Are All of Miranda Lambert’s Number One Songs

Here are all of Miranda Lambert’s number one songs in her music catalog. Lambert has acquired eight number one hits from her studio albums and two number ones on featured tracks throughout her career. Check out the full list below.

1. “White Liar”- Revolution, 2009
*Hit #1 on Mediabase Country Chart

Lambert landed her very first number one song back in 2009 when “White Liar” from her debut studio album, Revolution, made its way to the top of the Mediabase Country chart. An electric track that still remains popular in her live performances today, “White Liar” is a Miranda Lambert staple.

 

2. “The House That Built Me”- Revolution, 2010
*Spent 4 weeks on Billboard Hot Country Songs

This iconic Lambert song soared to the top of the charts back in 2010. Still today, “The House That Built Me” is the songstress’ fastest rising single. The song brings back pure nostalgia and fans always look forward to Lambert serenading her audience with this stunning song.

 

3. “Heart Like Mine”- Revolution, 2011
*Reached #1 on both Billboard Hot Country Songs & US Country Airplay

This 2011 song has always been a track that portrays Lambert’s interpretation of what heaven would look like. Even back then, the singer would convey her faith and her truth through her music; despite, the fact, that she doesn’t always do things the “Christian way.” The song is definitely one of her best!

 

4. “Over You”- Four the Record, 2012
*Reached #1 on both Billboard Hot Country Songs & US Country Airplay

Miranda Lambert released “Over You” back in 2012. The song is a personal story about Lambert’s ex-husband, Blake Shelton losing his brother. The two wrote the song together and it remains one of the most recognizable hits for Lambert. The story will never not be heartbreaking and touching.

 

5. “Mama’s Broken Heart”- Four the Record, 2013
*Reached #1 on Billboard Canada Country

Miranda Lambert’s infectious track, “Mama’s Broken Heart” reached number one on the Billboard Canada Country chart and remains one of her standout songs today. Written by Shane McAnally, Brandy Clark and Kacey Musgraves, the sassy tune perfectly sums up losing your cool after a relationship gone wrong and ignoring all of the motherly advice on how a lady should handle the break-up.

 

6. “Automatic”- Platinum, 2014
*Reached #1 on Billboard Canada Country

Miranda Lambert’s “Automatic” served as the lead single from her fifth studio album, Platinum. Written by Lambert with Nicolle Galyon and Natalie Hemby, the track reached the top of the Billboard Canada Country chart in 2014 and earned Lambert nominations for two GRAMMYs for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song.

 

7. “Somethin’ Bad” with Carrie Underwood – Platinum, 2014
*Hit #1 on Billboard Hot Country Songs

This killer duet with Carrie Underwood is Lambert’s first duet to reach the number one spot! When you have Underwood and Lambert on a song, it is hard to not fall in love with it. The song is powerful and sassy, a defective collaboration and combination.

 

8. “Bluebird”- Wildcard, 2020
*Reached #1 on both Billboard Country Airplay & Billboard Canada Country

Most recently, Lambert landed her 8th number one hit as a solo artist as she made her way to the top of the charts once again with her single “Bluebird.” The track is country music story-telling perfection, and we are so happy that Lambert got the recognition she deserved with this song.

 

In addition to her success, reaching eight number ones from releases on her studio albums, Lambert also earned two number one songs as a featured artist…

1. “We Were Us”- Keith Urban ft. Miranda Lambert, off Urban’s Fuse album, 2013
*Reached #1 on both US Hot Country Songs & US Country Airplay Charts

Back in 2013, Miranda Lambert joined Keith Urban on the classic hit “We Were Us”, earning the two a number one song to add to their collections. The track also won Musical Event of the Year at the 2014 CMA Awards.

 

2. “Drowns The Whiskey”- Jason Aldean ft. Miranda Lambert, off Aldean’s Rearview Town album, 2018
*Reached #1 on both US Country Airplay & Canada Country Charts

Teaming up eleven years after their first duet back in 2007 with “Grown Woman”, Miranda Lambert and Jason Aldean joined forces for the 2018 hit song “Drowns The Whiskey” off of Aldean’s Rearview Town album. The song perfectly captures the pairs vocals and we’re sure it will be fan-favorite collaboration for years to come.

 

As Lambert continues to put out new music, there’s no telling how many future number ones the superstar will add to her growing list.

Miranda Lambert Drops An Emotive Quarantine Song

Miranda Lambert just released a brand new song, “They’ve Closed Down the Honky Tonks”, available everywhere now, May 18th. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.

This past year has been a difficult one for all of us, but for the entertainment industry, it has been detrimental for so many reasons. Like many artists, Miranda Lambert took solace in her craft as a singer and as a songwriter to share her pain, her feelings, and her experiences with the world. Fresh off her collaborative album with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall, The Marfa Tapes, the songstress releases the ultimate heartbreaking quarantine ballad, “They’ve Closed Down the Honky Tonks.”

For many of us, watching our favorite venues close down and the concerts we looked forward to get canceled was shocking. A year without live music is something none of us could ever see coming. On her new song, Lambert laments about this exact thing. Full of emotion, the entertainer sings about venues facing losses, the pain in the industry, and the shock and dismay everyone went through during the pandemic.

“They’ve closed down the honky-tonks // And now my world ain’t turning // The jukebox ran out of change // And the neon lights ain’t buzzing // There ain’t nothin’ sadder // Than covering Haggard // And nobody singing along // Y’all they’ve closed down all the honky-tonks”

Penned by Lambert, the song truly encompasses how musicians, fans, and music lovers everywhere felt the last year. We appreciate her honesty and vulnerability on this heartbreakingly beautiful song. Hats off to Lambert for always keeping it real!

Miranda Lambert, Jack Ingram, Jon Randall: ‘The Marfa Tapes’ – Album Review

The Marfa Tapes from Jack Ingram, Miranda Lambert, and Jon Randall is officially available now, May 7th, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new music.

For the last few weeks, country fans have anticipated the release of Miranda Lambert’s latest project, a collaboration with fellow musicians Jack Ingram and Jon Randall. The record is a culmination of intimate songs that the threesome wrote and recorded together in the tiny town of Marfa, Texas. Today, the singer-songwriters officially debuted the body of work, an album called THE MARFA TAPES.

Each of the fifteen songs off the project are standouts in their own right. There are songs about love, life, nostalgia, and heartbreak, all anchored by beauty, acoustics, and a unique connection between the three talents. Fans get a taste of what it’s like to be an artist, whose number one goal is to create music that they love with every anecdote that the trio chooses to share with us at the end of each raw and beautiful song.

The record kicks off with the previously released “In His Arms,” a timeless tale of longing for a distant love. “I Don’t Like It” led by Ingram is another love-centered song that we all can relate too. Love also plays a crucial part in other songs off the record like “Anchor” and “Am I Right Or Amarillo.”

Songs like “The Wind’s Just Gonna Blow,” “Geraldene,” and “Tin Man” explore the dark side of love. The heart-achingly beautiful songs all tap into different feelings associated with love loss. Similarly, “Breaking A Heart” honestly portrays how difficult it is to be the heartbreaker and how difficult it is to be the heartbroken. The track is one of our all-time favorites on the record.

The trio also makes sure to pay homage to their roots on this record, as their beginnings in Texas are one of the reasons they all came together to write and record, over these five special days. Songs like “Waxahachie,” “Homegrown Tomatoes,” and “We Always Have The Blues” bring the nostalgic feel that this record needed. Their appreciation for their craft seeps through on each of these three tracks.

“Ghost” is one of those songs that portray hurt, love, and nostalgia all in one, a feat that is hard to convey with such a simple arrangement. On the other hand the closing track, “Amazing Grace (West Texas)” makes sure to convey to the listener that Marfa, Texas has a special place in the hearts of each of the three creators. Their bond is pure, sentimental, and beautiful.

THE MARFA TAPES is country music at its finest. Lambert, Ingram, and Randall bring heart, grit, and pure appreciation for the genre to their one-of-a-kind record. The truth and honesty within each song is refreshing, and the record is a true creative masterpiece by three incredible musicians.

Miranda Lambert Releases “Geraldene” with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall

Miranda Lambert along with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall surprised fans today, April 28th with the release of their new song, “Geraldene” ahead of The Marfa Tapes, due out May 7th. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.

County music superstar Miranda Lambert has joined forces with fellow musicians, Jack Ingram and Jon Randall on a brand new record entitled The Marfa Tapes, slated to come out on May 7th. The record is a culmination of intimate songs that the threesome wrote and recorded together in the tiny town of Marfa, Texas. This week, the singer-songwriters released a new song entitled “Geraldene.”

Continuing to make music that is good for the soul, Lambert, Ingram, and Randall add “Geraldene” to their early releases. With Lambert taking the lead on this track, the songstress pours her heart out in the song that respectfully mimics Dolly Parton’s hit song “Jolene.” The singer’s vocals soar on the song, as she clearly lets her emotions take center stage. Just as noticeable, the acoustic guitar feels almost palpable in the stunning song.

“Geraldene, Geraldene // Why ya gotta make me mean // Don’t make me cause a scene now Geraldene // Geraldene, Geraldene”

What makes this project as a whole and this song specifically so much fun is that the trio showcases every part of themselves on this record. Fans can hear Lambert’s voice crack a little about 2 minutes into the song, but instead of redoing the recording, the singers laugh it off. In the end, you can even hear the men telling Lambert to “Take a bow Geraldene.” We agree and are looking forward to the full release of this unique project on May 7th!

The record is a culmination of intimate songs that the threesome wrote and recorded together in the tiny town of Marfa, Texas. This week, the singer-songwriters release another track off the record, a song called “Anchor.”

Similar to the previous releases, “Anchor” is a swoon-worthy song that is all about the vocals and the lyrics. With just an acoustic guitar, the trio harmonizes about love in the spectacular tune. Ingram takes the lead on this song, singing all the verses off the track in a way that is both inviting and intimate. Lambert humbly takes a back seat and can be heard softly harmonizing during the chorus.

“Be my anchor // Come and save me // Come and take me // To the other side”

So far, the trio has released songs that showcase all sides of each of their unique talents. “Anchor,” “Tin Man” (Re-release” and “In His Arms,” and “Am I right or Amarillo” are incredible sneak peeks of the upcoming record. We look forward to hearing the full-length project and the magic that the trio has created together.

New Miranda Lambert Campaign Helps Dogs Most in Need of Adoption

Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation launched a new ‘Love Harder’ campaign, geared towards helping to find homes for rescue dogs that are most in need of adoption.

Miranda Lambert is one of those artists that always gives back. In 2009, she founded MuttNation Foundation with her mom, Bev Lambert to help find as many dogs as possible a safe and happy place to call home. Her new initiative ‘Love Harder’ is geared towards helping to find homes for rescue dogs that have a harder time getting adopted. The slogan “easy to love, harder to get adopted” is appropriately utilized.

To launch the campaign, Lambert sat with her SHEro, Emmylou Harris, to announce the project. In the announcement video, the two dog lovers discuss the importance of caring for older dogs and those with special needs.

Dogs that are pitbull mixes, big black dogs, senior dogs, and dogs with disabilities are amongst the many cuddly pups that need homes and are considered to be under this initiative. Fans that have rescued these types of dogs are encouraged to share their story at muttnation.com/loveharder. Those who do so will be entered for a chance to win a Miranda Lambert autographed Epiphone guitar.

To learn more about the new initiative and MuttNation’s mission in general, head to muttnation.com.

Country Music Shines at 2021 GRAMMYs + Full List of Winners

The biggest stars in music gathered in Los Angeles last night for the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards. Hosted by Trevor Noah, the show had a much different look than previous years. Awards were given revealed outdoors, across the street from the Staples Center. Artists stayed socially-distant, sitting at tables with a maximum of two people and performances took place in a separate room nearby. Country music was well-represented at the award show with performances by Mickey Guyton, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris with John Mayer, and more.

The first award of the night went to Megan Thee Stallion for Best New Artist – a category that featured country newcomer, Ingrid Andress — and Miranda Lambert took home the second, for Best Country Album with Wildcard. Jay Joyce, the producer of the album, contributed to two other albums in this category as well; Ashley McBryde’s Never Will and Brandy Clark’s Your Life is a Record. This award was introduced by JT Gray, owner of the small music venue in Nashville, Station Inn, as The award show made efforts to highlight small music venues throughout the country. Station Inn is home to early acts like Vince Gill, Chris Stapleton, and Dierks Bentley, who used to perform there before they made it big. For Lambert, this was her third GRAMMY-win and second in this category — Platinum won Best Country Album in 2015.

“We’re such a family here in country music, so I feel like holding this right here is like holding it for all of us; especially us girls,” Lambert confessed.

The GRAMMYs paid tribute to musicians of all genres who lost their lives this past year. Lionel Richie sang “Lady” in honor of the late Kenny Rodgers, and Brandi Carlile performed John Prine’s beautiful ballad “I Remember Everything,” which won Best American Roots Performance and Best American Roots Song earlier in the show. Charlie Daniels, Joe Diffie, and Mac Davis were also acknowledged, among many others.

Women dominated the country nominations this year, and their efforts in the industry were recognized last night with three consecutive performances by GRAMMY-nominated artists Mickey Guyton, Miranda Lambert, and Maren Morris. Guyton performed her inspiring narrative, “Black Like Me;” Lambert sang her number-one hit, “Bluebird,” and, alongside John Mayer, Morris performed her romantic cross-genre smash, “The Bones.”

The rest of the country awards were announced prior to the show, including Best Country Duo/Group Performance, which was given to Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber for “10,000 Hours;” Best Country Song, which went to The Highwomen for inclusion record “Crowded Table;” and Best Country Solo Performance, which Vince Gill won for his song “When My Amy Prays.” Dolly Parton picked up a GRAMMY award in the Christian category; her duet with Zach Williams, “There was Jesus,” won Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song.
