New Miranda Lambert Album Rocks AND Rolls and Could Be Yours [VIDEO]
Miranda Lambert’s brand new CD “Four the Record” will be released this Tuesday, November 1st. I’ve had a chance to listen to it, and–for the record–Mrs. Miranda Shelton has hit a grand slam home run. The clever metaphor, “Baggage Claim,” is already a big hit, as expected. But that barely scratches the surface as “Four” is loaded with gems. Follow-up single “Over You” is a bitter tale of a woman in mourning while “Same Old You” winks at the listener while explaining why there’s just no point expecting some things to change. You can almost hear the grin. “Better in the Long Run” is a duet with Miranda’s husband, Blake Shelton. Now, Blake and Miranda are on separate record labels–Blake’s on Warner Brothers and Miranda’s on SONY Music Nashville–and that could mean it would be difficult to release that song as a single. Hopefully not; it’s a guaranteed number one smash. The album’s best cut is the fiery and original “Mama’s Broken Heart” about a woman who imagines what her mother would think of her behaviour regarding a break-up. After Miranda’s last CD shot through the stratosphere thanks to its inclusion of the biggest hits of her career to date–including the instant classic “The House That Built Me”–fans were anxiously awaiting the next release. It is here. And it won’t disappoint. And, guess what! You will have a chance to win that CD all week long. Just listen each weekday afternoon for the Miranda Lambert greeting and be caller number four. Good luck! Oh, and listen for cuts from the new CD all week long. I look forward to seeing what you think.
