Miranda Lambert has released her next single from her latest album Palomino, it's called "Strange", and it's a reminder to always treat yourself right. The song, which will lift you up and take you to a happy place, was co-written by Miranda, Natalie Hemby, and Luke Dick.
Miranda says when it came to the bridge, they all wrote their own versions and ended up using lines from each persons bridge, so they ended up co-writing that part without even meaning to. They were all different, but the lines they took out of each bridge all fit together.
Midland have released their next single "Longneck Way To Go" featuring Jon Pardi. A classic tale of heartbreak, drowning your sorrows with some cold ones while closing down the bar, but still having some fun as depicted in the video for the song.
