Miranda Lambert Shares Potential New Single ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’
Miranda Lambert recently gave fans at Indiana State University a look at how she handles breakups by playing ‘Mama’s Broken Heart,’ a new song from her upcoming ‘Four the Record’ album. Before beginning, the singer confessed that she’s lobbying to make the song the second single from the album, following up her Top 20 and rising hit ‘Baggage Claim.’
“Sometimes when you get your heart broken you go a little bit crazy,” Lambert says in the fan-filmed video below. “You drink too much, you smoke too much, cut your hair, you have a rebound. Sometimes your mama, if she’s like my mama, has to slap you around and say, ‘Straighten up, girl.’”
No one does crazy quite like Lambert, and this song is full of it. The woman she sings about is a hot mess before the town’s barflies and Baptists call her mother ,who tells her daughter to “get it together.” “Go and fix your makeup / Girl, it’s just a breakup / Run and hide your crazy and start acting like a lady,” Lambert sings during the chorus. It’s not difficult to imagine Mama Lambert having that conversation with Miranda, though ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’ was written by songwriters Kacey Musgraves, Shane McAnally and Brandy Clark.
‘Four the Record’ will be in stores and at digital retailers on November 1.
