Miranda Lambert says her new single, ‘Only Prettier,’ which is steadily climbing the charts, was penned as a direct message to a specific group of people from her past.

“Natalie Hemby and I wrote this song together, and she had this verse,” Miranda recalls (quote via CMIL). “She said, ‘I have this idea I want to play for you. ‘I’ve been saved by the grace of southern charm. I got a mouth like a sailor and you’re more like a Hallmark card.’ And right there she had me. Just the fact that she had the guts to say what we all wanted to say to those mean skinny girls in high school.”

Miranda is proud of her curves, and hopes to inspire other girls to embrace their looks as well. “I’m OK with the way I look,” she insists. “And thank God I didn’t get in the modeling industry so I can actually eat food, which makes me happy. But I have a lot of girls who come up to me all the time and say, ‘We’re so glad you’re just normal, you’re normal sized and you’re not emaciated.’ I’m proud to stand for that.”

The singer hopes the song becomes a mantra for girls of all ages.“‘Only Prettier’ to me is an anthem. It’s my own anthem,” she says. “And I want girls to have their fists in the air, singing ‘Only Prettier’ with me.”

To accompany the song — and perhaps take home another CMT Award for Female Video of the Year — Miranda shot a memorable 1950’s-inspired clip with the help of good friends Kellie Pickler, Laura Bell Bundy and Lady Antebellum’s Hilary Scott.

Engaged to Blake Shelton, Miranda will have to make wedding plans while out on the road supporting her ‘Revolution’ album, which includes her No. 1 hit, ‘The House That Built Me.’ Find tour dates here.

Appearances > 2010 > 08/03/2010 – ‘The House That Built Me’ #1 Party

Well-wishers packed Nashville’s Sambuca restaurant Tuesday (Aug. 3) to celebrate the success of “The House That Built Me,” the song Miranda Lambert recently nailed to the top of the Billboard charts for four consecutive weeks.

Honored in addition to Lambert were the song’s writers, Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin, and the record’s producers, Frank Liddell and Mike Wrucke.

“Miranda’s idea of having a No. 1 party,” said Gary Overton, head of Lambert’s record company, Sony Music Nashville, “is ‘Let’s do [the presentations] first and then have fun.'” With that, he brought Lambert and the other principals to the stage to receive their first round of awards.

WSM-AM disc jockey Bill Cody saluted Lambert and the songwriters on behalf of Country Radio Broadcasters. He said that in the old days, when radio stations still played vinyl records, Lambert’s heavily programmed version of “The House That Built Me” would have been marred eventually by “cue burns,” which, he explained, were the scratchy sounds caused by a needle being dropped repeatedly to start a record.

Fortunately, he added, digital technology enabled Lambert’s voice to come through today “in all her perfection.”

Clay Bradley, speaking for BMI, the performance rights organization with which Douglas is affiliated, proclaimed that “The House That Built Me” is “everything that makes country music great. This makes us all reflect on where we came from and where we’re going.”

(The song chronicles the return of an emotionally wounded wanderer to the house she grew up in and her hope to find healing there.)

Bradley noted the song is Douglas’ third No. 1 within the past 12 months and is Lambert’s second No. 1 from her current album, Revolution.

Tim DuBois, who runs Nashville’s ASCAP division, which is Shamblin’s home base, pointed out that, despite rumors to the contrary, songs still get cut because they’re great, not just because their writers have the proper political connections.

“What we have here,” DuBois said, “is a song written by two of Nashville’s best journeymen songwriters — seven years ago.” It is Shamblin’s sixth No. 1, he added.

Troy Tomlinson, president and CEO of Sony/ATV Music, Douglas’ publisher, said “The House That Built Me” is the kind of insightful song that makes listeners think the writers “have been looking through my family photo album [or] through my window.”

Tomlinson observed the song had originally been pitched to Blake Shelton, Lambert’s fiancé, and his producer, Scott Hendricks, and thanked them for relinquishing it to Lambert.

Shelton, who stood half way back in the crowd, shouted back in mock dismay, “We’re really f***ing happy about it.”

“This song means the world to me. It really does,” Lambert told the crowd. “I cry every single night I sing it.” She said Shelton played her the demo of the song on their drive home from an airport and that she cried for two hours after hearing it.

“I want to thank my FI-nancy,” she quipped, hillbillying the pronunciation. “I like to call him my FI-nancy, but I guess I’m going to be financing him after this.”

Five months after his first “six pak,” Hillbilly Bone, country star Blake Shelton returns with his second, All About Tonight, due out Aug. 10. The EP of a half-dozen songs is led by the title-track single, a feel-good foot-stomper co-written by Rhett Atkins, which is already a Top 10 hit on the Billboard country charts.

“All About Tonight has a vibe to it from beginning to end,” Shelton says. “The songs make you want to play air guitar. Even the ballads have a more sing-along quality to them.”

The disc includes two collaborations with Shelton’s fiancée, Miranda Lambert. “Suffocating” is a ballad that Lambert co-wrote with Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott, while the mid-tempo “Draggin’ the River” features Lambert on vocals.

“I am extremely excited about the duet with Miranda,” says Shelton. “It is the exact type of duet our fans would expect us to do. We sing about being crazy in love and running away.”

Another noteworthy tune is the wistful “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking.”

“I always wanted a song with a great pick-up line like George Strait’s ‘The Chair,’ ” Shelton explains. “Now I have my own.”
