Track follows “If I Was A Cowboy”
Reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year Miranda Lambert follows recent Top 10 single “If I Was A Cowboy,” the 15th of her career, as “Strange” impacts country radio. The anthem of timely encouragement serves as the second single off Lambert’s latest hit album, Palomino.
“‘Strange’ is permission to just let go for a sec. We were really wanting the chorus to lift – literally and emotionally – and go into a happy place. It’s such a song for the time that we’re in right now, but it doesn’t feel like it won’t matter in 10 years, either,” Lambert reflects.
“We couldn’t land on a bridge. So, each one of us went and wrote a bridge on our own and came back and we ended up using lines from each person’s – so we cowrote that without even meaning to. It was pretty cool; everyone’s was different but when we took lines out of mine, Luke’s and Natalie’s it all fit together.”
Following her ACM Entertainer of the Year win earlier this year, the Texas native was recently named as the only country artist on the TIME100 List of the World’s Most Influential People, a distinguished group of individuals honored for their impact, innovation and achievement. The three-time GRAMMY winner also recently wrapped her co-headlining The Bandwagon Tour with Little Big Town, having earned rave reviews throughout its run.
Gracing the recent July 11th cover of People magazine, Lambert also shared the news of her new home goods collection, Wanda June Home, available exclusively at Walmart. The line joins her other ventures expanding beyond the traditional lanes of a music career, including her Idyllwind boot and clothing brand available at Boot Barn stores nationwide, her MuttNation pet supplies available at Tractor Supply Co. in support of her MuttNation Foundation – which has raised over $6 million to date in support of animal shelters and rescue pets – and her Casa Rosa restaurant in downtown Nashville, the first female artist-led bar on Broadway.
Lambert will ride this tidal wave of accomplishment into her latest endeavor this fall, as her Velvet Rodeo Las Vegas residency takes over the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino starting in September for a 24-date run.
