Miranda Lambert helps a friend get revenge on her ex in the brand new video for her red-hot single, “Wranglers.” 

Filmed outside of Austin, Texas by Lambert’s longtime collaborator Trey Fanjoy, the clip opens with Lambert rushing to be by her friend’s side amid a nasty breakup. When she arrives, they embrace, and together with two other girlfriends, they devise a plan to make a bold statement when they return his belongings to him.

After the girl group collects his belongings from around the house, they take them outside and drench them in gasoline. Then, Lambert lets the scorned woman strike a match, setting his things ablaze. As the flames rise up, the women toss in more clothes and photos while celebrating around the fire.

Meanwhile, her ex waits on his front porch for his belongings, only to receive a box filled with ashes and charred remains.

The just-released video stars Lambert’s childhood best friend Laci, who was also in the “White Liar” video, actress Elle Lamont, who appeared in “If I Was A Cowboy,” and Jessica Stroup (“90210,” “The Following,” “Jack Reacher,” “Iron Fist”), along with Christopher Backus (“Big Little Lies,” “Mindhunter,” “Jett”).

The “Wranglers” music video couldn’t be more fitting as it pairs perfectly with the song’s intense storyline about a woman who has been mistreated in a relationship by a man with a “wandering eye.” Finally reaching her breaking point, the woman decides to take matters into her own hands and burn down anything and everything she can get her hands on. During this process, she set his belongings ablaze, including his Wrangler jeans. 

“If he ever loved her, he never let it show/ If she didn’t need him, she’d a left him long ago/ She set it all on fire and if there’s one thing that she learned/ Wranglers takе forever to burn,” Lambert sings on the chorus.

Fans may notice that the “Wranglers” music video is slightly reminiscent of Lambert’s 2005 breakthrough hit, “Kerosene,” and that’s no accident. According to a press release, the gas can used to fuel the flames is a replica of her first kerosene can and the matchbook is the exact one used in that original shoot nearly two decades ago.

“Wranglers” was written by Audra Mae, Evan McKeever and Ryan Carpenter and marks the beginning of a monumental new chapter for the country superstar as it’s the first release via her new label home at Republic Records with support from Nashville’s Big Loud.

“‘Wranglers’ is a classic tale of a woman taking her power back,” Lambert shares. “I think we can all identify with the character in this video, because we have all had a time in our life where we needed to find our strength, and also get a little revenge on someone who did us wrong or hurt us. This offers such a cool, raging take on how something like this unravels; I am so proud to sing this song.”

The Texas native promises that more new music is on the way, however, a release date for hte new tunes has yet to be revealed.  

“Country music at its core tells the truth about life, but it makes you feel something,” Lambert says. “Sometimes you laugh. Sometimes you throw your fist in the air. Sometimes that fist goes through the wall. All I know is I’ve got a lot more to say, and a lot more music coming soon. So for anyone who’s ever seen themselves in one of my songs, especially the rowdy ones, get ready! We wanted to come with something that really says something from the start. And there’s a whole lot of feelings and rhythms and great playing to come.”  

Miranda Lambert is currently on the road. Her next scheduled tour date is set for June 29 in Midland, Texas.
