Miranda Lambert reconnects with her roots in her reflective new track, “Sweet By and By”.
The slow and soulful song is a part of producer Dave Cobb‘s upcoming concept album, The Southern Family. Some of the biggest names in country and Americana contributed to the project, which is centered around each individual’s unique experience of growing up in the South. Zac Brown, Jason Isbell, Chris and Morgane Stapleton, Brandy Clark and Lambert’s current beau Anderson East are just a few of the artists also featured on the album.
“These are songs written about growing up and songs that are cut that they’ve heard. Maybe one your mother sang to you,” Cobb recently said. “Something that means a lot to your family.”
The Southern Family is set for release on March 18.
