As Miranda Lambert turns 37, we want to honor the country music star with a recollection of some of her best songs. Whether you're a fan of the singer or a new listener to her music, you'll want to check out our top five Miranda Lambert songs on today's Destination Jam playlist below.
If you're a fan of the warmer, comforting sounds of country music, you'll be enticed by the upbeat style of the genre with this fire track. In 'Kerosene', Lambert raises conventional tempos with a snare-driven rhythm and the complete country set of instruments such as crunchy distortion guitars, harmonica, and banjo as she sings of "giving up on love 'cause love's given up on me."
'Mama's Broken Heart'
Push the above track up a few notches and you're given the infectious, anthemic 'Mama's Broken Heart'. Lambert contrasts the tone of the title with a party-esque punk rock beat, hard-hitting guitars and sings, "Go and fix your make up, girl, it's just a break up. Run and hide your crazy and start actin' like a lady. 'Cause I raised you better, gotta keep it together. Even when you fall apart. But this ain't my mama's broken heart."
'Settling Down' is one of Lambert's latest songs and we can't get enough of it. The song was released on September 21, 2020 to wide critical acclaim. Its official music video, which premiered on October 21, currently has nearly two million views. The 'Settling Down' visual was shot at Lambert's farm outside Nashville, Tennessee and features her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, marking the first time Lambert has had a love interest in one of her music videos. According to People, Lambert said, "I'm like, 'You're cute, you're here, and you're free.' It was fun; he did such a great job... and our little dog is in it, and our ponies. It's at my magical-happy place an hour away from Nashville."
Another Lambert track to become a massive hit is her 2009 track, 'White Liar' The singer has performed the song on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' on October 6, 2009, and at the 2009 CMA Awards the following month. In December of that year, 'White Liar' became Lambert's second Top 10 hit and peaked at No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week of February 6, 2010. Check out the official music video below.
We wrap up our Miranda Lambert playlist with the emotional slow jam 'Vice'. The song opens with Lambert singing acapella before kicking into a steady beat, tender guitars and subtle synth with lyrics like, "All dressed up in a pretty black label. Sweet salvation on a dining room table. Waiting on me. Where the numb meets the lonely."
