Miranda Lambert is no longer a free agent. The three-time GRAMMY winner has found a new label home at Republic Records in partnership with Nashville’s Big Loud and plans to release her first single via the label in just a few weeks. 

“Wranglers” Drops On May 3

Coming out the gates strong, Lambert will release the fiery new single, “Wranglers” on May 3. She says this track is reminiscent of music she released in the early stages of her career. 

“‘Wranglers’ is a tale of a woman taking her power back. I think we can all identify with the character in this song, because we have all had a time in our life that we needed to find a way to find our strength and also get a little revenge on someone that did us wrong or hurt us,” the superstar explained in a statement.

With new music and a new label team powering her career, Lambert is bursting with excitement to unveil her newest musical creations to the world.

“Music is and always will be the thing that drives me, but having a new home has given me a hunger I didn’t realize I still had inside me,” she said. “This song feels like it could be on the same record as ‘Gunpowder & Lead’; it has that same fury. I can’t wait to get out there with this new label and this new music… Monte Lipman and his team fire me up!”

REPUBLIC Founder and Chairman, Monte Lipman added, “Miranda Lambert’s legacy as both a consummate storyteller and legendary performer speaks for itself. Her new music is spectacular and we are thrilled and honored to welcome her to Republic Records in partnership with Big Loud.”

“We’re honored Miranda Lambert has entrusted us with this next chapter of her career,” continued REPUBLIC President and Chief Operating Officer, Jim Roppo. “As she puts the final touches on her fantastic new body of work, it has all the hallmarks of her signature sound, yet she continues to push herself as a songwriter, producer and performer. We’re all at the beginning of a very special moment, and we’re grateful to be on this journey with her.”

Follows Her Exit From Sony Music Nashville In 2023

This move comes after Lambert’s shocking exit from her longtime label home, Sony Music Nashville, in 2023. She revealed the news on Instagram, bidding farewell to the partnership that spanned 20 years. 

“I’m so thankful for our time together and everything they made possible for me, yet I wouldn’t be true to myself if I wasn’t constantly looking for the next challenge and a new way to stretch my creativity,” the Texas native wrote at the time. “With that in mind, I’ve decided to say goodbye to my Sony family. I can’t wait to see what the next adventure holds.”

Her upcoming set of new music follows 2022’s GRAMMY, ACM, and CMA-nominated Palomino.

On The Road In 2024

Having just wrapped her Las Vegas residency, Lambert recently shared plans to return to the road and has a slew of dates on the books throughout 2024. This weekend, she will headline Stagecoach and will also headline Rock the Country, Under the Big Sky, Calgary Stampede, and more throughout the summer.
