Miranda Lambert Debuts ‘Little Red Wagon’ Music Video
Miranda Lambert's "Little Red Wagon," the latest single off her Platinum album, is one of the singer's most fun songs, and to accompany it, Lambert has debuted a music video that's sexy, saucy and 100 percent suitable for the tune.
The Trey Fanjoy-directed clip begins with a red truck pulling Lambert's platinum Airstream trailer to a stop in front of a run-down motel in the middle of nowhere. Once parked, the trailer's door opens, and out walks a tiny dog on a leash -- and behind that leash is Lambert, gorgeous as ever in Daisy Dukes, a red shirt, glittery cowboy boots and big red sunglasses.
She saunters into the reception area of the hotel, and the manager looks suspiciously at the dog, as a "no pets allowed" sign is clearly displayed. But somehow, Lambert secures a room -- of course; who could deny those big blue eyes?
Later in the video, sporting a vintage red swimsuit and her "big sunglasses," Lambert looks absolutely gorgeous -- and her dog lays on a tiny raft in the pool, also wearing sunglasses (perhaps that's one of his tricks?). There's no shortage of scenery by the pool either, thanks to the tan, shirtless pool boy.
We'll stay mum about the rest of the video, but know that the pool boy appears again, in the final moments of the video, wearing nothing but overalls. And the motel's housekeeper and manager show off some of their best dance moves and air guitar skills. But the best part of the video takes place toward the end, as the belt around Lambert's waist loudly proclaims that she's Blake Shelton's wife.
"It's really cool," Lambert says about the music video setting. "Just the vibe out here is sort of a perfect setting for this song in particular."
Lambert shot the video three days before her Grammy Awards performance of "Little Red Wagon" and admits that she fell in love with the song, which was co-written and recorded by Judy Garland's niece Audra Mae, at first listen.
"When I heard it, I thought, ‘Oh god. This girl is ridiculous.' So I stalked her down. We’re the same age, and she’s from Oklahoma," Lambert says. "I asked her point blank: ‘What’s your plan for "Little Red Wagon"? Can I cut it? Can I even try to be a hair on the a-- of how you did it?’”
Lambert certainly did the song justice, both at the Grammys and in the music video, proving that there's no one that has "backyard swagger" like the sassy blond Oklahoman.
