Lambert wants to "Mess With My Head"

Friday, August 9, 2019 – -

The rumors were true about Miranda Lambert. After teasing that something might be released today, the singer put out a new song, "Mess With My Head."

But the song is pretty much a straight ahead rocker.

"'Mess with My Head' is a departure from anything that I've done before," said Lambert. "It has a real rock edge. Part of that comes from my co-writers, Luke Dick and Natalie Hemby, and the other part of that comes from spending time in New York City. Being there has put a new energy into my music and my writing."

Hemby has written songs previously recorded by Lambert and is a member of The Highwomen, the group including Maren Morris, Brandi Carlile and Amanda Shires.

Lambert indicated on social media that she may be releasing something today as she posted the name of the song and the words "Friday."

Lambert's recently-released single, "It All Comes Out in the Wash," which set a career high upon its release to country radio on July 21, with 112 Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck stations and SiriusXM The Highway onboard in its first week. The song was co-written by Lambert and The Love Junkies (Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna, Liz Rose). Lambert also put out "Locomotive," a co-write with Ashley Monroe and K.S. Rhoads. Monroe is a member of Pistol Annies, Lambert's side group.

Lambert will hit the road for the Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour this fall, with special guests Maren Morris and Elle King, as well as Pistol Annies, Tenille Townes, Ashley McBryde and Caylee Hammack on various dates.

But Lambert says that isn't the case, but more a matter of style, looks and feel. Lambert also wrote and discovered a lot of excellent songs that fit her quite well in an album in which she exposes her inner self as she matures. That may never more apparent than in the country rocker Lambert wrote »»»
Revolution CD review - Revolution
Every once in a while an album comes along that restores your faith in mainstream country music. Miranda Lambert's "Revolution" is just such a recording. It's not revolutionary, as the title might suggest. Instead, this CD is chock full of topnotch songs that are both memorable and sincere and never sound slick or overproduced. (Come to think of it, such old school values as these may in fact be revolutionary around Nashville). Lambert vocalizes a bit like a little girl at »»»
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend CD review - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Even though it sounds like a cliche from the big book of country songwriting, the truth is that, when the timing's right, a loser can end up being the biggest winner of all.

Imagine for a moment if the then-19-year-old had actually taken the crown in 2003's Nashville Star and then been forced into the studio within weeks to be primped and »»»
