Survival, overcoming obstacles, moving on … those moments in life we’d like to forget…

Miranda Lambert’s first single since 2017’s “Tin Man” is upbeat, and so Country.  The title says it all: “It All Comes Out in the Wash.”

You got frisky with your boss at the copy machine
You drunk-dialed your ex-husband, don’t remember a thing
Had a fancy dinner at your mother-in-law’s
Spilled A1 Sauce on her table cloth, don’t sweat it
Tide stick will get it

It’ll all come out, all come out in the wash
Every little stain, every little heartbreak, no matter how messy it got

Co-written with her pals ‘The Love Junkies’  (super successful Nashville songwriters Lori McKenna, Liz Rose and Hillery Lindsey) the message  is “..when you have something in your life that’s a little unclear at times or hurtful or a moment that you wish would pass, it does all pass and it all comes out in the wash. That’s something that all of our moms would say to us when we were little-let’s not worry about a stain.”

Lambert’s style is in-your-face and saucy, and the message is a popular one in Country music:  strong women holding down the fort, no matter the challenge, a sentiment similar to the one expressed by the “Trio:” Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt, blending their gentle, beautiful voices in the inspirational  “Wildflowers” (1987).

“It All Comes Out in the Wash” is top 25 on the Country charts, and if you love Miranda Lambert (as I do) than you’ll be happy to know her newest album will be out Nov. 1st, and title is “Wildcard.”
