Miranda Lambert channels her Texas roots throughout “Tequila Does,” the latest release from her forthcoming album Wildcard.
Combining two time signatures that channel elements of a two-step and a waltz, Lambert’s yearning vocals are at the forefront alongside wavering steel guitar, a driving beat and delicate plucks of an acoustic guitar.
“‘Tequila Does’ is country. And country music makes me happy,” Lambert said of the track. “No matter how rock or edgy or scorned you can get, when you come back to a country song with a steel guitar, it makes my soul feel like it’s on fire.”
Lambert penned “Tequila Does” with longtime collaborators and fellow Texans Jack Ingram and Jon Randall. It is the latest preview off her upcoming Jay Joyce-produced album Wildcard, out Nov. 1.
"Tequila Does" follows lead single “It All Comes Out in the Wash” and previous releases “Locomotive,” “Mess with My Head,” “Bluebird,” “Pretty Bitchin’” and “Way Too Pretty for Prison” which features Maren Morris.
