What a fantastic couple of weeks it’s been for all the Miranda Lambert fans out there. Not only has it been announced that there is a 13 track Christmas album on the way from Pistol Annies (“Hell Of A Holiday , the talented trio’s first album in three years, will be released on October 22nd, in plenty of time to get you into the festive mood) but last Friday Miranda dropped a solo single of her own, and what a stunner of track it is!
“If I Was A Cowboy” sees Miranda co-writing with Jesse Frasure, the two having met whilst working on the remix of “Tequila Does” . As Miranda explains, “he and I just got together one afternoon for a write and this is what came out of it. He’s a Detroit boy and I’m an East Texan, but somehow we wrote a song about the Wild West together “.
What a beautifully simple accompanying video to the track, too.
It’s not clear yet if this is a stand alone release or part of a bigger project from Miranda who of course is heading over the pond next March to headline the C2C festival in London, Glasgow and Dublin, but no doubt all will be revealed before then!
