Miranda Lambert: The Music That Changed My Life
The Singer Shares the Songs That Moved Her
MERLE HAGGARD , 1996
"Merle is my No. 1. He makes you believe the stories he tells. I grew up with my dad singing his songs, and 'Twinkle, Twinkle Lucky Star' was one of the first songs I learned on guitar."
'Run the World (Girls)'
Beyoncé Knowles, 2011
"I'm a huge Beyoncé fan. I've seen her five times, and I respect her so much as a woman, an artist and businessperson. I used this song in my 2013 tour as the song I walk onstage with. It's total girl power!"
'Desperados Waiting for a Train'
GUY CLARK, 1975
"That's my favorite song of all time. I remember hearing it when I was 8 and thinking, 'Oh my gosh'. His songs push me as a writer. I think, 'I can do better.' "
MIRANDA LAMBERT, 2011
"Blake and I wrote this together about his brother who died in a car accident when Blake was a teen. The fact that we wrote such a personal song together is special, but then he wanted me to record it. It won ACM and CMA Song of the Year, two of my most treasured moments and awards."
BOBBY "BORIS" PICKETT AND THE CRYPT-KICKERS, 1962
"Probably every morning, when Blake's making coffee, I hear 'We do the mash ...' It makes us happy, and I love Halloween, so why not? Every couple has a song; this is ours."
