Miranda Lambert has dropped her latest song, “Champion,” a collaboration with Scarlett Burke for the latter’s audio drama Make it Up as We Go.
The heartfelt tune speaks to the experience of overcoming adversity to chase one’s dreams. It’s an apt soundtrack to an audio drama about a young singer-songwriter, portrayed by Burke, struggling to make it in the music industry. “So I do it all again / Everything I had to lose to win / Every time I think my world might end / It’s the fall before the climb / A broken heart is always my champion,” the pair sing on the track.
“Champion” was written by Burke, Nicolle Galyon, Jared Gutstadt and Jeff Peters for the podcast’s season finale. Lambert serves as one of the show’s executive producers and has most recently released a visual for her own track “Settling Down.”
