NASHVILLE, TN – On the boot heels of her four week, number one single “The House That Built Me,” Miranda Lambert is ready to slather on the Southern charm with, “Only Prettier,” the new single from her ACM Album of the Year, Revolution. The single, which shipped to radio Monday was written by Lambert and fellow conspirator Natalie Hemby.

Of the song, Lambert says, “To me, ‘Only Prettier,’ is an anthem, it’s my own anthem, and I want girls to have their fists in the air singing ‘Only Prettier.’ It’s antagonistic, in a fun way and I loved the attitude behind it. It kind of fools you, because it’s got this really country, laid-back intro, but then it’s balls to the wall the rest of the way. It’s so much fun!”

In addition to the song being fun, the music video will add fun element as well. Shot on location in Joelton, Tennessee a few days ago, Lambert asked a few of her only prettier girlfriends including Kellie Pickler, Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum and Laura Bell Bundy to join her. While the particulars of the video are being kept under wraps, Lambert and friends pretty-up as both “socials” and “greasers” as two rival cliques of girls attend a high school sock hop.

Three-time GRAMMY® nominee, platinum-selling recording artist and hit singer/songwriter Miranda Lambert recently added her first CMT Award to an already impressive list of accolades she’s received this year. 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). Her current single, "The House That Built Me," has held the Number 1 position for 4 straight weeks. It follows “White Liar” which was Miranda’s first career No.1 single.

Revolution, her critically-acclaimed third album, has quickly surpassed the Gold sales mark after debuting at No. 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 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 the "Best Album of the Year" in any genre including the Houston Chronicle and NPR's All Things Considered.

In 2008, Miranda Lambert first won the coveted ACM Album of the Year and in 2007 the ACM Best New Female Award.

She recently wrapped up her own "Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars" headlining tour and will be joining the Lilith Fair tour this summer. For more information, visit www.MirandaLambert.com
