Miranda Lambert on Teaming Up With LBT
Miranda Lambert made good with Little Big Town when she asked them to join her on her latest single, “Smokin’ And Drinkin’.” Miranda says the idea of the collaboration came up during an award show last year, and she was thrilled with the results.
“I was at the CMT Awards and I was talking to Karen and she was saying,’You have a song that we heard that we love we were gonna cut but you’re cutting it,’ and they had one that I loved that they were cutting. I was like, ‘What is it?’ She said, ‘”Smokin’ and Drinkin'”.’ I was like, ‘Well, when I cut it will y’all sing on it,’ and she said, ‘Okay, I’ll talk to the band, but yeah.’ You know, it’s one of those conversations where we’re all like having a glass of wine after an award show and you don’t ever know if it really will happen, but then whenever we cut it they came in and I wasn’t there when they sang, which I’m kind of glad cause I’m kind of a stalker fan of theirs (laughs). I love them. I’m just a huge, huge LBT fan so I was really blown away by what they did, and that song wouldn’t be what it is without them on it.”
Miranda and Little Big Town debuted the song live on last year’s CMA Awards. It’s the third single from Miranda’s current album, Platinum.
