Chris Stapleton and Miranda Lamberthave a new song registered to BMI (a massive company that handles licensing and royalties for songwriters) called “Somebody Winds Up Pregnant”… and I don’t think I’ve been so intrigued with a song title or pair of writers in a long time:
Typically, this wouldn’t be much to write home about, because artists and writers are constantly registering songs for many different reasons. Some of them never even see the light of day, or they wind up on an album for someone else, but this one has my attention.
I mean, Chris and Miranda co-writing a tune with a title like that?
It already has the potential for country music ballad of the year based on those facts alone.
Now last year, we know Miranda dropped a new record, in that of Palomino, and Chris is still promoting his Grammy-winning 2021 album Starting Over, so who knows if and when we’ll ever hear this one or if they’ll sing it together, but here’s hoping we do.
I can’t even imagine that much country talent on a song together… I think they just might be the duo we never knew we needed.
Chris and Miranda performed “Maggie’s Song” together at the 2021 ACM Awards:
Miranda Lambert’s Las Vegas Residency Continues This Spring
Miranda Lambert is heading to Sin City.
The reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year announced her very first Las Vegas Residency, Velvet Rodeo, which will take place at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino’s Zappos Theater.
I truly don’t think there’s anything she can’t do at this point, from owning her own clothing line to being the only female artist with a bar on Broadway in Nashville, this Vegas residency is another massive milestone for Miranda in her career.
The run of 24 shows will kicked off in September of last year, with dates running the spring of 2023.
Of course, playing in Vegas means taking the production of a Miranda show to a whole other level, and get even more creative with everything from set design to wardrobe:
“When you’ve been touring as long as I have, there’s something really creative about imagining a residency in a city like Las Vegas.
I’ve had a lot of fun designing our sets, merchandise and clothing and boot lines, and even my place on Broadway in Nashville, Casa Ros… so, this opportunity allows me to lean in a bit more into that side of myself and think about how to really bring country music to life in this room.
I think everyone will like what we’ve dreamed up. I’m really excited about this!”
