Miranda Lambert revealed that she will not be attending the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
In a recent interview with ABC-Audiothe “If I Was A Cowboy” singer shared that despite being nominated for two of the coveted 2022 GRAMMYs, she won’t be performing.
“I’m not going back there,” Lambert said. “I’m slammed this month, with the release of the record and everything.”
Lambert is currently nominated for the 2022 GRAMMYs for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” with Elle King, and Best Country Album for Marfa bandsa collaborative project she released in May 2021 with Jon Randall and Jack Ingram.
Why isn’t Miranda Lambert attending the 2022 GRAMMYs?
Well, the answer to that question is simply because she’s busy preparing for what’s to come in the next few months.
The Texas native is in full pre-production for her headlining tour with Little Big Town, dubbed The Bandwagon Tour.
Along with gearing up for her next ride with Little Big Town, she’s also gearing up to release her highly anticipated new album, palominoslated for release later this month.
Although Lambert couldn’t attend, she shared that her collaborators, Randall and Ingram, will be there “to represent the home team.”
She admitted to the outlet that she currently has major “FOMO,” but she appreciates all the love The Recording Academy is showing her.
“I got to perform at the Grammys last year, and I took one home, and I was so grateful,” Lambert added. “I’m grateful for what I already have.”
Miranda Lambert is preparing to release her new album, Palomino, later this spring
Arrival on April 29, palomino will feature 15 tracks, including his current single, “If I Was A Cowboy”, and the new “Strange”. The album will also feature a cover of Mick Jagger’s “Wandering Spirit”, the title track from Jagger’s 1993 solo album of the same name, as well as three songs from the collaborative project by Lambert, Jon Randall and Jack Ingram, Marfa bands.
“Making this record was one of the most fun and creative experiences of my career,” says the woman who holds the title of most-awarded artist in ACM history. “Luke Dick, Natalie Hemby and I went to my farm in Tennessee in 2020 and started writing songs. While we have time, we thought we should go to the countryside and see what would happen. The first one we wrote was “Tourist” and that set us on the path to creating something with a bit of a theme. Since we couldn’t travel at the time, we decided to take a journey through songs. I hope you are all ready to travel with us wandering spirits and meet cool characters with great stories.
“Music City Queen” is the only collaboration on the highly anticipated album, which features new wave band The B-52s.
“Unthinkable things come together,” admits the superstar. “When Natalie, who’s such a badass singer and the kind of person who elevates the cool in every room, started singing ‘Rollin’ on the river…’ we were all like, ‘What if the B-52s sang there on it?’ They loved the song. They zoomed in with Luke and Jon and sang their part, which gives me so much joy. I missed their Zoom, because I was on a plane; but to ZOOM the B-52s in your file? Yes please.”
According to a press release, the disc will “explore the world and its people, seeking beauty and adventure all around.”
palomino follows Lambert’s GRAMMY-winning album Wildcard and his two collaborative projects, Marfa bands and Pistol Annie’s Christmas album, Holiday hell.
