Sounds | Miranda Lambert, Settling Down (acoustic)


Miranda Lambert is een grote dame in de CM wereld. Ze draait ondertussen al twintig jaar mee, heeft acht albums op de teller (plus drie met Pistol Annies) en rijgt de awards (ACM, CMA én Grammy's) aan elkaar. Haar enorme troef is haar zéér kenmerkende én krachtige (country)stem waar je wel even aan moet wennen. Wedden dat je eerst hard gaat lopen? Ik daag jullie echter uit toch enkele keren goed te luisteren, naar verschillende nummers, want die stem is een pak sterker en veelzijdiger dan je initeel zou denken. Ook haar knack om trouw te blijven aan tradities en toch mega hits te pennen, maakt haar uniek.

Anyway, deze versie van haar laatste single (zie onderaan 'lees' voor het origineel) is een prachtige stripped down versie. The Marfa Tapes (met Jack Ingram en John Randall) verschijnt op 7 mei via Vanner Records (Sony Music Entertainment) Luister ook naar: In His Arms (met Jack Ingram en John Randall) Bluebird (acoustic) Tin Man (live)

Miranda Lambert continues her reign as the most nominated female artist in ACM history as she received five nominations for the 56th ACM Awards Friday.

Lambert earned her 15th nomination in the Female Artist of the Year category, which she has won a record-setting nine times, while her No. 1 hit “Bluebird” was nominated for Single, Song, and Video of the Year. Lambert earns an additional nod as a songwriter on the track, along with co-writers Natalie Hemby and Luke Dick. “Bluebird” has earned more than 260 million on-demand streams and was named one of the 2020’s best songs by Billboard, Taste of Country, The Boot, Sounds like Nashville, and more after earning the same accolades in 2019 from Rolling Stone and the Nashville Scene. The “poetic, introspective, and hopeful” (MusicRow ) smash landed at No. 15 on Billboard’s year-end Hot Country Songs chart.

These nominations follow a whirlwind 2020, which saw “Bluebird” top the charts at Lambert’s seventh career No. 1 radio single and earn a CMA Award for Music Video of the Year. The “spacious, atmospheric number” (Rolling Stone) also earned Lambert nominations for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards, where her universally-acclaimed No. 1 album Wildcard is also up for Best Country Album. The superstar ranked No. 3 on Billboard’s 2020 Top Country Artists – Female chart.

Meanwhile, Lambert’s latest single “Settling Down” continues its climb at radio, currently within the Top 25. She recently released the track’s romantic accompanying music video, which features husband Brendan McLoughlin as well as her horse, Gibson, and one of her many rescue dogs, Delta Dawn.
