Miranda Lambert And Company Drop New Track “Geraldene” From ‘The Marfa Tapes’

Did y’all know Jolene had a sister?

Apparently, her name is Geraldene…

Miranda Lambert, Jon Randall and Jack Ingram released another new song from The Marfa Tapes, a surprise mid-week release called “Geraldene,” and it’s essentially a nod to Dolly Parton’s iconic hit “Jolene.”

I’ve only listened to it a few times so far, but it’s just so damn catchy. Miranda referred to it as “a fun one,” and she’s not wrong.

Her voice sounds so gritty and raw on this recording, and her Texas accent comes out beautifully singing some of the brooding lyrics, like:

“I could see you coming all the way from Amarillo,
Truck stop red lips pullin’ on some nicotine,
Shining like the spokes on a brand new El Dorado,
You’re trailer park pretty, 
But you’re never gonna be Jolene.”

You can even hear Miranda play around with her delivery at certain points towards the end of the song, and I can’t stress enough how refreshing it is to have a project like this coming out. You can just hear how much fun they’re having during this process.

I just miss hearing country songs like this. The rawness, the realness… it even has shades of Loretta Lynn’s “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man)”.

And the best news is, we’re only a little over a WEEK away from the album release on May 7th.
