Critics are raving about Wildcard:
“Listening to Wildcard…you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wake up from a blackout-drunk evening next to your two best girlfriends and a freshly dug grave that none of you will speak of again. In short: It rocks.” – Entertainment Weekly
“Rife with the honest, introspective and relatable lyrics for which Lambert is known” – Tennessean
“She specializes in the kind of country music that doesn’t fade in the background, thanks to her meaty songwriting, her ear for the genre’s most interesting sounds — and of course, her clear, penetrating, impossible-to-replicate voice.” – Billboard
“…while her writing still explores the dark corners of heartbreak and hangovers, she approaches those topics with bright, self-effacing humor and countrified cheek.” – Rolling Stone
“She’s been a consistent ray of light — a huge star who writes and sings tough and funny and thoughtful songs.” – Stereogum
“The queen of modern country” – Uproxx
“With the new project, Lambert relishes in showcasing a fuller range of her abilities, moving effortlessly from the swampy ‘White Trash,’ the uplifting country zinger ‘It All Comes Out In The Wash,’ the Texas-born strains of ‘Tequila Does,’ to the transparent portrayal of a hardcore romantic with a checkered past on the breezy ‘Track Record.’” – MusicRow
“the superstar singer balances unwavering honesty with her sweet soul and keen observations about the world surrounding her” – Sounds Like Nashville
Lambert’s first collaboration with producer Jay Joyce, Wildcard features Top 15 lead single “It All Comes Out in the Wash,” as well as “foot-stompin’ barnburner” (NPR) “Locomotive,” “crunchy, frisky jam” (Stereogum) “Mess with My Head,” “irresistibly catchy” (SPIN) “Bluebird,” “fun-loving” (NASH Country Daily) “Pretty Bitchin’,” “just plain good” (Taste of Country) “Tequila Does,” and “instant honky-tonk jukebox classic” (Billboard ) “Way Too Pretty for Prison,” which features Maren Morris.
Tonight, Lambert will perform an intimate Wildcard set and chat with iHeartRadio’s Brooke Taylor during the “iHeartCountry Album Release Party with Miranda Lambert” at the iHeartRadio Theater in New York City. Fans can tune into a radio broadcast on iHeartMedia’s Mainstream Country radio stations and a 30-minute video stream on iHeartRadio.com/MirandaLambert on Nov. 6 at 7:00 p.m. local time.
