Single Review: “More Like Her” by Miranda Lambert

August 16, 2008

Many fans are quite familiar with Miranda’s tough girl attitude and her constant control of bad relationships and heartbreaking situations through her delicate temper and rowdy lifestyle. However for the first time in her career at radio fans get to see this entire concept of Miranda turned upside down into a delicate and vulnerable young woman who faces a choice that isn’t hers to make.

Miranda fills this simple and soft lyric with powerful and heart-wrenching emotion that is not overdone, but not lain and un-noticeable either. Her character is apparently caught in a love triangle with her man falling for an apparent former love or a significant other that is also important in his life and instead of forcing control over the situation of heartbreak Lambert simple realizes her lack of control over her man and understands his decisions only concluding “I guess I should have been more like her”. Miranda seems to be at her best when she lets it all go and just comes right out with every word and note with feeling and maybe a little hurt and torture mixed in for spice.

While everyone loves her rowdy side, Miranda shines like a star as a writer, an artist, and an all around country music professional in this one. Well done.

Grade: A

    I love the song myself and hope it does well because it would help broaden her appeal. However it doesn’t sound like something that top 40 radio would be willing to play. This is a song that I’m not able to even venture a guess as to where it will chart.

    I enjoy the softer side of Miranda. She is fun to watch. I love her style,music,and her voice. I’m sure she would be a blast to go out and have a few beers or shots of something. She a wild one!!
