Miranda Lambert, "Bluebird"

Country songbird Miranda Lambert channels her title "Bluebird" for a brand-new music video, released Friday (March 20).

In the video, Lambert remains cooped up in a cage, ruffling her blue bedazzled feathers in front of a quaint nightclub audience. She's trapped like a real-life pet bird, which feels oddly familiar for a lot of people around the world staying indoors to self-quarantine. But as the country star consoles in the chorus, "And if the whole wide world stops singing/ And all the stars go dark/ I'll keep a light on in my soul/ Keep a bluebird in my heart."

"'I love 'Bluebird.' It’s a song like I’ve never written before and I’m so proud to be a part of it," Lambert said in a press release. "Since I wrote it, I’ve been seeing bluebirds everywhere. The bluebirds had always been there -- I live on a farm -- but I never saw them like I see them now. It reminds me to open my eyes to what’s around me. Now, seeing a bluebird sitting on a branch means so much more to me. I see a little piece of hope there, sitting with wings, and it’s a reminder. I think this is one of those songs where every person takes what they need to from it."

"Bluebird," which Lambert co-wrote with Luke Dick and Natalie Hemby, was featured on her 2019 album Wildcard, which topped the Top Country Albums chart and peaked at No. 4 on the all-genre tally (dated Nov. 15).
