Miranda Lambert Shares the Songs She’s Most Proud of Writing
Miranda Lambert has a lot of hit singles under her belt, but the superstar says there are a few of her songs that she counts as favorites — and they may be unexpected choices.
“‘Dead Flowers’ is a definite favorite. ‘Love Looking for You’ is another one,” she says. “Neither was a huge hit, but from a songwriting perspective, I’m proud of both of those.
“‘Love Looking for You’ was one of the early ones. It took me a while to understand what I was saying with that song,” she adds. “Writing something as a young kid, sometimes you go back and hear it from a different angle from how you heard it when you wrote it. A song you wrote when you were young can surprise you when you’re older.”
Lambert started writing songs when she was only 17 years old, and she says that she took to the process instantly.
“I started playing guitar and wrote my first song, and it felt like the first thing that had ever come naturally to me. It was something I didn’t have to work really hard at, whereas I had to work hard at everything else I had done,” she explains. “I think it’s maybe something you’re either born with, or you’re not.”
