Miranda Lambert – Palomino

According to a press release, the record “explores the world and the people in it, seeking beauty and adventure all around.”

“The making of this record has been one of the most fun and creative experiences of my career,” reflects Lambert, who holds the title of most-awarded artist in ACM history. “Luke Dick, Natalie Hemby, and I went out to my farm in Tennessee in 2020 and started writing songs. We figured while we have time let’s get out to the country and see what happens. The first one we wrote was ‘Tourist’ and that set us on a path to create something with a bit of a theme. Since we couldn’t travel at the time, we decided to go on a journey through songs. I hope y’all are ready to travel with us wandering spirits and meet some cool characters with great stories.”

Also among the track list is “Music City Queen” featuring The B-52’s and three tracks – “In His Arms,” “Geraldene,” and “Waxahachie” – from Lambert, Jon Randall and Jack Ingram’s critically acclaimed project, The Marfa Tapes

“Unthinkable things coming together,” the superstar acknowledges. “When Natalie, who is such a bad ass singer and the kind of person who raises the cool in every room, started singing ‘Rollin’ on the river…,’ we were all like, ‘What if The B-52s sing on this?’ They loved the song. They Zoomed in with Luke and Jon and sang their part, which gives me so much joy. I missed their Zoom, ‘cause I was on a plane; but to ZOOM The B-52s into your record? Yes, please.” 

Additionally, fans may recognize the track “Wandering Spirit,” which was co-written and recorded by The Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger.
