Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton Record Duet

Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton have recorded a duet that will appear on Lambert’s upcoming album, Four the Record, due Nov. 1. “Better in the Long Run” was written by Ashley Monroe (of the Pistol Annies), Charles Kelley (of Lady Antebellum) and Gordie Sampson (“Jesus, Take the Wheel” ). Lambert wrote or co-wrote six of the 14 tracks on the album. Other guests include Brandi Carlile, who wrote and provided background vocals for “Same Old You.” Carlile also sang at Lambert and Shelton’s wedding. Lambert’s current single, “Baggage Claim,” features Josh Kelley on background vocals and Steve Winwood on Hammond B-3 organ. A limited edition deluxe version of Four the Record, also due on Nov. 1, will offer a bonus song and a DVD featuring Lambert’s stories behind each song.
