We’re used to feisty. Flirty. Sweet. Sassy. But a tear-your-heart-out, bawl-your-face-off story? That’s kind of a new thing for Miranda Lambert. But it’s there on her upcoming album — a song called “Over You” that was inspired by her husband Blake Shelton’s own tragedy as a teen. When Shelton was only 14, his brother Richie died in a car accident at age 24. Lambert told Ladies Home Journal that Shelton opened up to her about it one day while he was playing a little melody. So they added words. “I said, ‘You went away,’ and Blake said, ‘How dare you,’ and we both started crying. I’ve never cried writing a song before. Now that I’m so close to him, it’s my pain, too,” she said. “Later, he said, ‘I think it’s better if you record it. Honestly, I don’t think I can get through singing it every night onstage, so what’s the point?’ I love that song, and I feel like it’s time for me to show I have that side of me that’s vulnerable and hurting for someone else.”
“The reason I love this song is because it’s about how sometimes when you get your heart broken, you kinda go a little bit crazy,” Miranda Lambert confesses, introducing ‘Mama’s Broken Heart,’ a track off her upcoming project, ‘Four the Record.’ “You drink too much, you smoke too much, you cut your hair … you find a rebound. Sometimes your mama, if she’s like my mama, has to slap you around and say, ‘Straighten up girl!'”
The rough and tumble Texan previewed the track during her Sept. 8 performance at the Hulman Center on the Indiana State University campus. The singer admits that she is hopeful the song will find its way to radio soon, saying, “fingers crossed that it may be the next single off the record.” (Watch Miranda perform ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’ below.)
Bob Kingsley’s “Country Top 40” will present the world premiere of Miranda Lambert’s fourth studio album, “Four The Record.” The 90-minute special, hosted by Kingsley, will put the spotlight on the latest by the Grammy-winner and reigning CMA and ACM female vocalist of the year. The broadcast window for the special is October 28 through November 6. “Four The Record” is set for a November 1 release. More than 85 stations have already signed up to air the premiere including KPLX Dallas; KMPS Seattle; KSONSan Diego; WWYZHartford, Conn.; KSOP Salt Lake City; WDXB Birmingham, Ala.; KTST Oklahoma City; and WGNA Albany, N.Y. “Country Top 40” is represented by Dial Global Radio Networks.
RCA/NASHVILLE artist MIRANDA LAMBERT will release her new album “Four The Record” on NOVEMBER 1st and there will also be a Limited Deluxe Edition version of the album that includes a bonus song and a DVD featuring MIRANDA sharing stories behind each song.
“I’m so ready for the fans to hear it,” said LAMBERT. “‘Baggage Claim’ is such a groovy song and I’m glad it’s the first single. But just like Revolution, not one song represents the whole album. There are ‘All Kinds Of Kinds’ of music on the Record, and I’m so excited for it to get out there.”
Of the 14 tracks on the album, MIRANDA wrote or co-wrote six of them including her single “Baggage Claim” which features JOSH KELLEY on background vocals and STEVE WINWOOD on the B-3 organ. The album also includes a duet, “Better In The Long Run,” with her husband BLAKE SHELTON, which was written by PISTOL ANNIE’S group member ASHLEY MONROE and LADY ANTEBELLUM’s CHARLES KELLEY, with songwriter GORDIE SAMPSON. BRANDI CARLILE wrote the song “Same Old You” and also provided background vocals for it on the album.
“To me, part of having a long career is to keep reinventing yourself, keep reinventing your music, and make it fresh. And it’s kind of crazy to think that I’m on my fourth record, and after what Revolution did for my career, I was nervous, but what am I gonna do? So I just started writing, started collecting songs, finding songs, and listening to artists, and I just found that I’m gonna just let the music lead it. I just think I followed my heart,” said LAMBERT.
