It turns out it wasn’t intentional to make a double album! Many musicians would dream to be this productive on the recording front, and Miranda Lambert is a talent well deserving of this much time on the mic!
“She didn’t make a double record to say, ‘Look at me. Y’all deserve two records from me,’” her producer Frank Liddell told industry newsletter Billboard Country Update. “It was never calculated, it was never ‘We’re going to do something that nobody has done.’ It was just that this is where she was in her life at the time.”
Miranda has gone through a lot in her personal life in the last couple years with her split with fellow country singer Blake Shelton. Considering he’s also had a very public relationship with co-host, it’s likely given Miranda a lot to write about!
“She said, ‘I really just want to take a look at myself, what I’ve been doing, what I’ve been going through, write about it, live through it and make a record,’” he said. “She wanted to look at herself as introspectively as possible, and how she got here, and make the record that’s reflecting that.
“Rather than make light of it, or rather than telling somebody else to ‘give me something timely,’ she sat down and did the work.”
