Miranda Lambert Teams With Maren Morris on Spirited New Song, “Way Too Pretty for Prison” [Listen]

Miranda Lambert shared a new song, “Way Too Pretty for Prison,” from her upcoming seventh studio album, Wildcard, which drops on Nov. 1.

The spirited new song, which Miranda co-penned with the Love Junkies (Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna and Liz Rose), features vocals from Maren Morris.

“Karen Fairchild [of Little Big Town] and I were having a wine night to talk about The Bandwagon Tour, and I always tell my friends, ‘Don’t leave if you’ve been drinking, because you’re way too pretty for prison,’” says Miranda. “She got a ride home at the end of the night, and the next day I had a write with The Love Junkies. I was telling them about our night, and that conversation, and they said, ‘Well that’s what we’re writing today.’ I’m so glad Maren joined me on singing this song. She sang her ass off and it was so fun to have her in the studio.”

“Way Too Pretty for Prison” follows the release of lead single “It All Comes Out in the Wash,” “Locomotive,” “Mess With My Head” and “Bluebird.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
