After teasing their new collab for months, the country music superstars dropped their new song, "Way Too Pretty for Prison," and it's a fun, comedic take on wanting to get revenge on a no-good, cheatin' man -- and why they won't go through with it.
"He cheated, he's a villain/ And you know I'd help you kill him/ But we're way too pretty for prison/ Hard time ain't our kind of living," the song explains, before detailing the harrowing existence that is life in the big house.
"They don't have rhinestone ball and chains/ Lunch trays don't come with Chardonnay/ The bars there ain't got boys to buy us drinks," the song opens, before later reflecting, "Well, the state won't pay for lash extensions/ No Sun Tan City, not to mention/ that lack of waxing situation."
However, it's clear Lambert and Morris put a lot of thought into how they'd actually commit the crime if so inclined: "Antifreeze and Gatorade/ Arsenic in his lemonade/ Takes just one snip to bleed his brakes/ But we ain't gonna do it."
Hours before releasing the song, Lambert took to Instagram to share a black-and-white snapshot of her and Morris, smiling together in the audience at an awards snow.
She later revealed how the song came together. "This song was inspired by a wine night I had with @karenfairchild. I always tell my friends, 'don’t leave if you’ve been drinking, because you’re way too pretty for prison,' and the Love Junkies and I turned that into a song," Lambert wrote. "@marenmorris sang her a** off on it. #TexasGirls."
Maren was also thrilled to share the track, Instagramming: "'Lunch trays don’t come with Chardonnay, the bars there ain’t got boys to buy us drinks...' When @mirandalambert told me about this song back at the ACMs, I knew it’d be full of wit and some Texan bite. Happy I could be a partner-in-avoiding crime on it with her. 'Way Too Pretty for Prison' is out now!"
"We’re going on tour together later this fall, so maybe we’ll write a song together when we’re out. ... I mean, she’s such a great friend. And to be able to support her on the road this year, it’s going to be really fun for me. And I feel like I am going to learn a lot."
"Way Too Pretty for Prison" will appear on Lambert's upcoming album, Wildcard, which drops Nov. 1.
