Miranda Lambert releasing All Kinds of Kinds

Miranda Lambert.

Country music fans are about to get a fifth single from Miranda Lambert‘s “Four The Record” album. The Texan singer-songwriter will be releasing “All Kinds of Kinds” to country radio, she announced during CMA Fest this past weekend in Nashville. This news comes as we reported that she’s about to start recording her fifth album with Sony Music Nashville this Summer. “All Kjnds of Kinds” has an add date of June 24th, so fans should keep their ears peeled to their radios in the next few days.

Check out the official single cover art below:

What do you think about “All Kinds of Kinds” being the potentially final single from “Four The Record”? What song do you wish was released as a single from Miranda’s past albums?

While we might still get one more single from Miranda Lambert‘s fourth album, “Four The Record,” the Texan superstar has admitted that she’ll be working on her next solo album as soon as August. For fans expecting more angry, break-up anthems from the fiery singer they might be in for a shock – she’s been listening to a different kind of country lately.

In an interview with AZ Central, Miranda said:

“I’m going into the studio in August to make my fifth solo album. And I think I’m just gonna have fun because I’ve been serious a lot. I’ve written songs about killing people and sad songs, and I really want to do a tour that’s just a lot of fun, so I want to do an album with more fun songs. And I mean, don’t get me wrong. I’ll definitely have my serious Miranda Lambert-style songs, but everything I’m listening to now that I’m liking is kind of a jam that you could listen to driving around on back roads or on your boat.”

Miranda also admits that she gets nervous when making her albums:

“Yeah! I mean, I freak out every time. I’m like a basket case when it’s time to make a record. I get so nervous as to ‘Is this gonna work? Is this gonna be the album that stops selling, that stops getting nominated?’ I know that I can’t live like that. I can’t do my whole career like that. But it definitely crosses my mind.”

Miranda just released her second Pistol Annies album, “Annie Up,” earlier this year.

Are you excited for a potential new sound from Miranda? Or are you hoping she’ll stick to “Revolution” and “Four The Record“?

Dierks Bentley Releases New Single “Bourbon in Kentucky”

77bd464825d5bb362662cacf_480x319

Dierks Bentley‘s new single “Bourbon in Kentucky” was released to radio today! The song will officially be going for adds on June 10th.

“Bourbon In Kentucky” is the lead single from Bentley’s upcoming seventh studio album, Riser, due out this fall.

The track describes the deepest pain and depression that comes from an unbearable loss, and the lengths a person goes through to try to kill or ease that pain. Bentley began working on the album after he lost his father in June 2012.

Bentley’s intensity in “Bourbon” is matched by the haunting background vocals provided by Kacey Musgraves. He shares:

“I’ve never heard anything like ‘Bourbon’ before. I really love the angst of it. I’ve been there before where you can’t drink your way through a heartache or a broken heart. There’s such an aggressive lonesomeness in this song.”

Bentley also does not want people making assumptions about the upcoming album’s sound:

“I don’t want anyone to have any preconceived notions of what the rest of the album’s going to sound like. I’d just like this first song out there to kind of shatter any expectations.”

Dierks is currently on the road with Miranda Lambert for their Locked & Reloaded Tour.

You can STREAM “Bourbon” right now on www.Dierks.com! Just share via your Facebook or Twitter, and you’ll get to listen to the new track.

Also, check out a behind-the-scenes interview with Dierks from RollingStone.com:

Miranda’s Foundation was extended an invite by Oklahoma’s Secretary of Agriculture Jim Reese. Miranda’s Muttnation Foundation will help transport animals to permanent locations and rescue them from the rubble.

Miranda’s husband, Oklahoman superstar Blake Shelton, is currently in the process of putting together a charity concert with NBC to help provide relief to victims. We’re pretty sure you’ll see Miranda at the concert in some form.
