Miranda Lambert Returns To Country Radio With New Single "Strange"
Reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year Miranda Lambert follows recent Top 10 single “If I Was A Cowboy,” the 15th of her career, as “Strange” impacts Country radio today, July 18. The anthem of timely encouragement serves as the second single off Lambert’s latest hit album, Palomino, already named one of the best of the year!
Honored with the “Disc of the Day” award from MusicRow, Billboard notes of the single, “[Lambert’s] signature graceful-and-gritty vocals lead a balmy, anything goes vibe,” also calling Lambert’s delivery on her eighth studio album “pitch-perfect as she delivers some of her most on-point lyrics ever, laid over atmospheric melodies.”
“‘Strange’ is permission to just let go for a sec,” reflects Lambert. “We were really wanting the chorus to lift – literally and emotionally – and go into a happy place. It’s such a song for the time that we’re in right now, but it doesn’t feel like it won’t matter in 10 years, either.
“We couldn’t land on a bridge,” she adds of the writing process. “So, each one of us went and wrote a bridge on our own and came back and we ended up using lines from each person’s – so we cowrote that without even meaning to. It was pretty cool; everyone’s was different but when we took lines out of mine, Luke’s and Natalie’s it all fit together," Lambert said in a recent press release!
Gracing the recent July 11 cover of People magazine, Lambert also shared the news of her new home goods collection, Wanda June Home, available exclusively at Walmart.com. The line joins her other ventures expanding beyond the traditional lanes of a music career, including her Idyllwind boot and clothing brand available at Boot Barn stores nationwide, her MuttNation pet supplies available at Tractor Supply Co. in support of her MuttNation Foundation – which has raised over $6 million to date in support of animal shelters and rescue pets – and her Casa Rosa restaurant in downtown Nashville, the first female artist-led bar on Broadway.
Lambert will ride this tidal wave of accomplishment into her latest endeavor this fall, as her Velvet Rodeo Las Vegas residency takes over the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino starting in September for a 24-date run.
