Miranda Lambert's new album, Palomino, might be considered a game as much as it is a vehicle for new music. There are many “Easter eggs” for fans to find buried within the lyrics of the album's 15 songs.
Miranda tells us: “I never thought about calling them Easter eggs but that's a good way to put it — just these little references to Emmylou songs or Billy Bob's rhinestone saddle. I want people in on it. This isn't like an inside joke or us winking at each other. This is like, 'Find them with us.' I'm still finding them and I wrote every song on this record (laughs), you know? Across this record there's all kinds of little nuggets to pull from.”
Palomino is out today (Friday, April 29th). The project includes Miranda's latest hit, “If I Was A Cowboy.”
She performs tonight in Johnson City, TN.
