Miranda Lambert’s Ready for Some “Smokin’ and Drinkin'”

She Opens Up About a Different Kind of Party Song

Miranda Lambert is not about to sing about a girl shaking her ass on someone’s tailgate.
There’s nothing necessarily wrong with that kind of party song. It’s just not one Lambert would ever consider cutting.

“I can’t sell party songs. I mean, I have them all on my iPod, but I cannot say, ‘Tailgate, she’s a hot ass, dancin’,’” Lambert said. “I can’t sell that as a female artist. That would sound weird.”
What she can do, though, is sing a different kind of party song. One she and songwriters Natalie Hemby, Shane McAnally and Luke Laird talk about in a new video on Billboard.com.
This song, “Smokin’ and Drinkin’,” they all concur, is more about hanging with friends, prom, campfires, innocence, youth, high school loves and ones that got away. And, yes, smoking and drinking — but not in an excessive way.
