Miranda Lambert Announces New Project with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall – The Marfa Tapes

Earlier this week, Miranda Lambert posted to her social media “We don’t know what we’re doing, but we know we’re supposed to be doing it.” and tagged Jack Ingram and Jon Randall.

Now we know what the trio was doing…working on a new music project!

Today Miranda announced a new album, The Marfa Tapes.

Talking about the new music collection Miranda says, “They’re raw. You can hear the wind blowing, the cows mooing… We wanted you to feel like you were right there with us, sitting around the campfire, escaping the world, disappearing into the music.”

Fans can check out the first song from The Marfa Tapes, — The album arrives May 7th — watch the music video for “In His Arms,” right here

 

For those unfamiliar with Marfa – it’s a city in the high desert of the Trans-Pecos in far West Texas, between the Davis Mountains and Big Bend National Park.

Miranda shares, “Every time I need an escape, I go to Marfa, TX. Jack Ingram, and Jon Randall come. We recharge. We get inspired by its beauty. We write songs.”

Turns out that Miranda has included songs that she’s written in Marfa on her last two albums, The Weight of These Wings and Wildcard. She says, “‘Tin Man’ was the 1st one we shared with you. ‘Tequila Does’ was the 2nd. In between, we’ve written 13 more. And it’s about time to start sharing them with y’all…”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
