"They're raw," the singer-songwriter said of the songs on the album in a post on social media. "We wanted you to feel like you were sitting right there with us."

Lambert has previously collaborated with Ingram and Randall on fan favorites "Tin Man" from 2016's The Weight of These Wings and "Tequila Does" from 2019's Wildcard.
Ingram released his self-titled debut album in 1995. His 2005 single "Wherever You Are," from his Live: Wherever You Are album, hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
Dallas-native Randall is a Grammy-award winning producer, songwriter and musician. He co-wrote "Whiskey Lullaby," which was recorded by Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss, and has written songs for Reba McEntire, Emmylou Harris, Scotty McCreery, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Dierks Bentley and more.
In addition to the new album, Lambert has another project on the way. With the launch of her upcoming Nashville venue, Miranda Lambert's Casa Rosa, she'll become the first solo female country artist with a branded restaurant and bar on Nashville's Lower Broadway.
Lambert is nominated for Female Artist of the Year at the 2021 Academy of Country Music Awards. She's also nominated for Single of the Year and Song of the Year for "Bluebird."
The "Settling Down" singer is set to play three shows at the legendary "World's Largest Honkytonk," Billy Bob's Texas in Fort Worth, Texas. The shows, set for April 22, 23 and 24, are Lambert's first since the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic shut down venues in March of 2020.
Lambert recently released "Drunk (And I Don't Wanna Go Home)," a duet with Elle King.
