Miranda Lambert’s ‘Wildcard’ Album Is Released: On This Day
It’s hard to believe four years have passed since the release of Miranda Lambert‘s seventh studio album, Wildcard. The country superstar’s fourteen-track collection was a memorable one, to say the least.
When Lambert introduced the album, she revealed to fans that “Wildcard has an overall theme of own the skin you’re in.” The album let us do exactly that, especially with her three singles, “It All Comes Out In The Wash,” “Bluebird,” and “Settling Down.”
“When people listen to this record, I want them to know that I see them and hear them,” said Lambert. “I feel you, because I’m just a girl from East Texas, writing about all the things that go on in my world and in the worlds of people around me. I want people to get along, you know, just be who you are, own it and move on from the moments you couldn’t live in.”
The album was produced by Jay Joyce which Lambert had a hand in co-writing on for every track selected. Wildcard landed Lambert a Grammy Award for Best Country Album in 2021 as well as a CMA nomination for Album of the Year.
The 39-year-old went on to release several music videos for the project including “Settling Down” which she stars in alongside her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, and the fan-favorite “Tequila Does” remix.
“Country is what I do. It’s who I am. It literally just seeps out of my pores,” Lambert stated in the Wildcard teaser video.
Following the release of Wildcard, Lambert took her new music out on the road in 2020 for her “Wildcard Tour” with supporting acts Cody Johnson, LANCO, Randy Rogers Band, and Parker McCollum.
Since the 2019 release of Wildcard, Lambert dropped a collaborative album titled The Marfa Tapes, with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall, and her most recent, Palomino in 2022.
