06 Dec TWO-TIME GRAMMY WINNER MIRANDA LAMBERT EARNS TWO GRAMMY NOMINATIONS FOR HER CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED SONG “VICE’’
33 – 45 – 78, when it hurts this good you gotta play it twice…Miranda Lambert’s “Vice” is being recognized for its virtue by the Recording Academy with two Grammy nominations, Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song (Miranda Lambert alongside co-writers Shane McAnally & Josh Osborne).
At the time of release, Maeve McDermott of USA Today wrote, “Vice, is a murky, regret-filled affair, as she sings about succumbing to her weaknesses. … But Lambert is one of the best songwriters in the game, and Vice’s gloomy heartbreak is masterfully done.” And Andrew Leahy of Rolling Stone said, “Miranda Lambert gets spacey, dark and desperate with “Vice,” … the song points Lambert in a new direction, with guitars that howl in slow-motion and a voice that sounds as though it’s echoing throughout the walls of an empty home.”
“Vice” was the first single released off of The Weight Of These Wings which hit No.1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart after one week of being available from its November 18 release. The Weight Of These Wings also debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, which spans across all genres. The album has been met with overwhelming critical praise. Jewly Hight from NPR Music wrote, “If ever there was any question, this multifaceted and distinctly modern work ought to lay it to rest. Lambert is the most fascinating and unfettered singer-songwriter of her country generation.”
