Miranda Lambert has released “Fooled Around and Fell in Love,” a song featuring her tourmates on her ongoing 2019 Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour.
The musicians featured on the track—Maren Morris, Elle King, Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes and Caylee Hammack—are part of an all-female roster of opening acts for Lambert’s current tour. “It wasn’t a conscious decision for it to be all girls. It was just, who are you loving and what’s cool right now? And who is available? … It came together organically,” Lambert explained in an interview with Rolling Stone.
“Fooled Around and Fell in Love” is a cover of a 1975 hit originally written and released by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Elvin Bishop. It was also covered by Rod Stewart and Starship vocalist Mickey Thomas.
On the track, Lambert and the ladies harmonize over slide guitars and patient hi-hats: “I must have been through about a million girls / I’d love ’em and I’d leave ’em alone / And I didn’t care how much they cried, no sir / Their tears left me cold as a stone.”
Lambert previously dropped “Pretty Bitchin’,” “It All Comes Out in the Wash” and the Maren Morris-assisted “Way Too Pretty For Prison,” all cuts off her forthcoming album Wildcard. The record will drop November 1 via Vanner Records/RCA Records Nashville.
