Whiskey Riff Song of the Week: “Tin Man” by Miranda Lambert (Again…)

I had to do it. I had to make this single “Song of the Week” for a second time.

Miranda Lambert’s “Tin Man” is one of the year’s best, but is struggling to get country radio airplay and hasn’t even cracked the Top 30 on Billboard’s Country Chart. We know there’s a lot of work to be done when it comes to women of country music getting a fair chance to have their music played on radio. The charts are heavily in the men’s favor, but it’s not because of a lack of great songs by the ladies. There’s plenty out there.

We’ve talked about this issue plenty on the site, socials, and our podcast, and will continue to do so. I’m going to do everything I can, as will the other writers here, to showcase great music as much as possible. This is simply a great song and deserves a 2x “Song of the Week” feature.

I especially love this unplugged version.
