In a genre driven by story songs and real life experiences, “Over You,” the official second single from Miranda Lambert‘s “Four The Record” album, might just be the most personal song of her career, beating out “The House That Built Me.” Written by Miranda and her husband, Blake Shelton, the song is the story of Blake’s older brother who tragically died in a car crash when Blake was 14 years old.
“I’ve never cried writing a song, and I don’t know that I ever will again. After we wrote it, Blake said he couldn’t record this song for himself or sing it on stage every night but he would be honored for me to. ‘Over You’ is one of the most special songs I’ll ever be a part of.”
With 2011 finally coming to a close, Miranda is looking back at her phenomenal year. In 2011 she got married, won her first GRAMMY award, her second consecutive CMA Female Vocalist Of The Year award, 4 ACM awards, a headlining tour, a #1 debut album for the Pistol Annies, and she made history be becoming the first country artist in the 47-years of the Billboard chart to have all four of her albums debut at #1 with “Four The Record.”
Miranda will only have a short time to celebrate the holidays before she kicks off 2012 with a bang. She’ll be heading off on her “On Fire” tour early in the new year, with her first stop at Rockford, IL on January 12th. Special guests Chris Young and Jerrod Niemann will join her on tour.
