Every album Miranda Lambert has released since Kerosene has gone platinum. That incredible trend continues with her sixth album, The Weight Of These Wings, a powerful two-disc collection of both summertime jams and vulnerable introspection.
The Weight Of These Wings is Lambert’s longest album, comprised of 24 songs and fueled by the singles “Vice,” “We Should Be Friends,”and “Tin Man.” It debuted No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Album chart and, after 33 weeks, has become one of the most popular albums of Lambert’s career.
Lambert, the reigning ACM Female Vocalist of the Year, is not only one of the best vocalists in country music, but one of the best songwriters. While the album is not perfect (see “Pink Sunglasses”), the album, anchored in unabashed and bold songs like “Tin Man,” make this album endure and stand as a testament to the power of honest songwriting.
