Texas natives Miranda Lambert and Leon Bridges have teamed up for a duet called “If You Were Mine,” which will be released on Tuesday (June 6th) across all major digital platforms.
Miranda said, “I have been a big fan of Leon for a while because he is very authentic as an artist and I love his music. I wrote this song with Ashley Monroe and Jesse Frasure, specifically with Leon in mind. Since we are both from Texas, we threw in a few Texas references, of course – the Frio River being one. When we finished this song, we sent it to Leon in hopes that he would want to collaborate and we were so glad that he said yes. I have really enjoyed getting to know him and I’m happy to have him as a new friend.”
Leon said, “I was humbled to have Miranda ask if I’d join her on this beautiful duet she wrote. Getting in the studio with her in Nashville to sing this song together was magic. There’s nothing better than two Texans on one mic!”
The release is the first taste of new music from Miranda, who has recently teased “some fun collaborations up my sleeve."
Miranda will return to Las Vegas for the next round of her Velvet Rodeo residency shows in July following a Nissan Stadium performance as part of CMA Fest on Friday (June 9th).
