After sitting pretty on the country charts with her record breaking four-week #1 single, “The House That Built Me,” Miranda Lambert is laying on the southern charm with her sassy anthem and new single, “Only Prettier.” The video for this tongue-in-cheek commentary about mean-girl cattiness will make its world premiere on VEVO August 3rd at 12AM ET with a 48 hour exclusive. The “Only Prettier” video will be available on all media outlets beginning August 5.
The “Only Prettier” video will be available across the VEVO platform, which includes VEVO.com, VEVO on YouTube and the destinations where VEVO powers music video such as AOL and CBS Interactive Music Group’s sites.
Directed by Trey Fanjoy, the video was shot against a 1950’s rockabilly backdrop at a middle school gymnasium in Joelton, TN. Lambert asked friends Kellie Pickler, Laura Bell Bundy and Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott to join her in a mini-movie as two rival cliques of girls attend a high school sock hop.
“Only Prettier” is the fourth release from her critically acclaimed third album, Revolution, and follows her four-week #1 “House That Built Me,” as well as her first career #1 single “White Liar.”
This fall Lambert is headlining “CMT On Tour: Miranda Lambert REVOLUTION.” The nationwide tour which crosses 28 cities and includes special guests Eric Church and Josh Kelley will kick off on the one-year anniversary of the release of her album Revolution on September 29 in New York City.
A three-time GRAMMY® nominee, platinum-selling recording artist and hit singer/songwriter, Miranda Lambert recently received her first CMT Award, following a year of impressive accolades. The fan-voted CMT Award for Female Video of the Year joins Miranda’s recent ACM wins for Album of the Year (Revolution), Female Vocalist of the Year and Video of the Year (“White Liar”).
Revolution has quickly surpassed the Gold sales mark after debuting at #1 on Billboard's Country Album Charts, making her one of four artists in country music history whose first three albums landed the top position right out of the box. It has received rare perfect reviews from countless publications including four stars from Rolling Stone and USA Today, an 'A' from Entertainment Weekly and exuberant praise from the New York Times, SPIN, the Washington Post and more. Many have proclaimed Revolution to be the "Best Album of the Year" in any genre including Entertainment Weekly, the Houston Chronicle and NPR's All Things Considered.
