You’ve been waiting for it…
It’s been a month or so since Miranda Lambert was last on the charts as a solo artist. She’s been busy getting married, out on the road, playing with the Pistol Annies, and also recording tracks for her upcoming fourth album – [easyazon-link asin=”B005DTL958″]Four The Record[/easyazon-link].
Now the apparent first single is starting to make the rounds and the early indications are Miranda hasn’t lost her edge.

Baggage Claim – Miranda Lambert
My first reaction is positive.
I think it’s another hit for Miranda. Early in her career and just a few short years ago she was struggling to find acceptance on the country charts. Her early singles were great songs, but must have been a bit too edgy for DJs because the tracks only made it up to the teens or the twenties on the charts.
With her last album, though, Miranda broke through with a couple numbers ones and a number two hit. Those seemed to propel her to acceptance from the radio crowd. I think the trend will continue as [easyazon-link asin=”B005FSPAO8″]Baggage Claim[/easyazon-link] goes for radio adds over the next few weeks.
The song is about a woman that’s sick of dealing with her guy’s BS. He brings too much baggage to the relationship. All his drama and emotions are making her life crazy. She has enough to deal with and she needs someone that can handle themselves. She isn’t a shoulder to cry on all the time.
The joker in the song needs to move on and find someone to deal with his whining and constant drama and all the other stuff that’s going on in his life. It’s all baggage and Miranda is leaving him at the baggage claim.
It’s good to see Miranda is still rocking on this new album. I don’t think there was much to worry about even though she’s been in a good place for the last few years. She seems to still have her sources for good country song inspiration.
This song rocks and I can’t wait for the rest of the album.
