Miranda Lambert, ‘Fastest Girl in Town’ Video
Move over, Thelma and Louise. Miranda Lambert and NASCAR driver Danica Patrick are breaking laws and taking names in the brand-new “Fastest Girl in Town” video, which just may be the country superstar’s most creative (and fun) video yet. It starts with Miranda’s name up on an movie theater marquee before the audience is thrust into a four-minute film about the raucous rebellion of these two spitfires. (Watch the video below.)
“Danica was the person I thought of immediately when I envisioned the video. We had so much fun playing two bad ass chicks up to no good,” Miranda says with a laugh. “Danica has a really busy schedule, and I’m thrilled she was able to take time to come to Tennessee and be a part of this.”
Danica — who is noted as being the most successful woman in American racing history — turns out to be the best person for the job, as the story takes a turn and Miranda needs a getaway car driver. The brunette racer takes the wheel of a vehicle the girls may not have obtained legally, and leads her country star pal to a much happier ending than Thelma and Louise’s.
The “mini movie” was directed by Trey Fanjoy, the eye behind Miranda’s “Over You,” “Only Prettier” and “The House That Built Me” videos, to name a few. It also marks the first clip that doesn’t contain a performance shot of any kind from the songstress.
