OFFSTAGE: Buying Just One Song Isn’t Fair to Miranda Lambert’s Revolution

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

As of Wednesday night (Dec. 1), Miranda Lambert is now up for five Grammys. And she’ll likely bring home at least a few, especially because of one megahit on her Revolution album, “The House That Built Me.” But if you ask Lambert, the album goes way beyond that. “And I feel like if people just buy one song off this album, they’re not gonna understand what it’s about and who I am because I really found myself creatively and just opened up artistically,” she told CMT Radio. “And I feel like it’s not fair to the record to buy one song because they all need to be heard.” I couldn’t agree more. I mean, if you can only afford one or two songs, definitely buy the hits. But the rest of the album — with songs like “Me and Your Cigarettes,” “Airstream Song,” “Love Song,” and then my absolute favorite and “most played” on my music library, “Heart Like Mine” — is worth missing a few morning lattes for.
