Yesterday, Miranda Lambert teased fans on the midnight drop of her new song featuring Maren Morris, “Way Too Pretty For Prison.” Well, 24-hours later, the song has officially been released to the public.
"He cheated, he's a villain / And you know I'd help you kill him / But we're way too pretty for prison / Hard time ain't our kind of livin' / And I don't want to talk about / The way those jumpsuits wash us out/ We're way too pretty for prison," the duo sings.
Lambert took to Instagram to share that the new song is all thanks to a bottle of wine and fellow country singer, Karen Fairchild. In the caption she writes, "This song was inspired by a wine night I had with @karenfairchild. I always tell my friends, 'don't leave if you've been drinking, because you're way too pretty for prison,' and the Love Junkies and I turned that into a song. @marenmorris sand her ass of on it. #TexasGirls"
Fairchild responded to the Instagram post commenting, "I'll always be here for you." Morris also turned to social media sharing "When @mirandalambert told me about this song back at the ACMs, I knew it'd be full of wit and some Texan bite. Happy I could be a partner-in-avoiding crime on it with her. Way Too Pretty for Prison is out now!"
