Considering the success that Miranda Lambert‘s Platinum album has had (it’s been named ACM and CMA Album of the Year and won the Best Country Album Grammy), we know that would be a hard act to dubplicate. And since, “Little Red Wagon,” is only the third single off the massive hit album, Miranda isn’t exactly in a hurry to start work on her next album.
She says, “I definitely am still riding out Platinum. I’m not even close to being tired of it yet. I feel like it’s brand-new, even though it’s been out a year.”
And Rand is quick to applaud the impact Platinum has had on women in country music, too. The second single, “Somethin’ Bad” with Carrie Underwood, is a Reba/Linda Davis type duet between two female acts. We can’t forget she recently shared Song of the Year honors at the ACM Awards with her “Automatic” co-writers Natalie Hemby and Nicolle Galyon. All holding it down for the females!
“I guess I’m inspired because of everything that’s going on in country music right now,” Miranda said. “Winning Song with Natalie and Nicolle, it’s three female songwriters and artists in their own right, and that makes me really excited for the future of females in country music.”
