Really, no last name is necessary for either one, given that these two have been the most influential ladies in mainstream country music for the last 15 years.
And, back in 2014 at the CMT Awards, they teamed up for an absolutely badass Thelma and Louise-style rendition of their song “Somethin’ Bad”.
It was written by Chris DeStefano, Brett James and Priscilla Renea, and was even the second single for Miranda’s highly underrated Platinumalbum that year.
The rock and roll leaning song peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, and it was the first number one by teamed-up solo women in more than two decades for that chart. Later that year, it got nominated for a Grammy for Best Country Duo/Group Performance.
At the time, they were sort of alone in terms of other women in mainstream country music. This was all happening at the height of bro-country, and they really couldn’t have picked a better song to just come out swinging with.
Funny enough, the track was originally supposed to be a duet between a guy and a girl, but they had other plans for how it was going to go. Being the creative ladies they are, they figured it out and eventually found themselves with a number one hit.
