Lambert turns out to be the "Wildcard"

Thursday, August 15, 2019 – Miranda Lambert's seventh studio album, "Wildcard," will arrive Nov. 1 on Vanner Records/RCA Records Nashville.

"When people listen to this record, I want them to know that I see them and hear them," said Lambert. "I feel you, because I'm just a girl from East Texas, writing about all the things that go on in my world and in the worlds of people around me. I want people to get along, you know, just be who you are, own it and move on from the moments you couldn't live in."

Her first collaboration with producer Jay Joyce, Wildcard includes rock, folk, Wurlitzer country and funky gospel.

Lambert also released a new song, "Bluebird," which she co-wrote with Luke Dick and Natalie Hemby. The album also features the lead single "It All Comes Out in the Wash," "Locomotive" and "Mess with My Head."

No track list was released or the number of songs on the disc.

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.

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. Today's object lesson comes from Miranda Lambert and her sophomore album, the follow-up to her 2005 near-platinum debut, "Kerosene." 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 »»»
