Miranda Lambert's new video for 'Only Prettier' features some major country girl-power

Miranda-LambertNow that Miranda Lambert is finally getting some much-deserved commercial recognition, it looks like her label is a bit more willing to put some money into her music videos. She’s come a long way since “Me and Charlie Talking.” Yesterday, Lambert dropped a 1950s-inspired video for her latest single, “Only Prettier,” which features some of the sharp-mouthed singer’s best girl friends. In the clip are fellow country stars Kellie Pickler, Laura Bell Bundy, and Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott, and the four gals cheekily portray two different cliques of friends at a school dance.

You’ve got the chain-smoking, gum-smacking bad girls, and the poodle-skirted, giggly squares. Though the groups shoot daggers across the dance floor all night, as the lyrics suggest, they actually “have got a lot a common.” They just need a little spiked punch to realize it. Watching the singers dress up and poke fun at themselves is pure fun (Kellie Pickler is especially funny), and I’m glad to see these women treat each other as comrades, rather than competition. Part of what makes country music is great is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously, and this video is no exception. Watch it after the jump:

What do you think of Miranda Lambert’s latest video, Music Mixers? Do you like the comedic collaboration between these female country stars?

    ive seen this girl live and she rocks it- ” REVOLUTION” her latest cd is pure gold- shes fierce and current-def. a true country artist

    • Stormy

      Have loved Miranda ever since she came in second on the first season of Nashville Star. The guy who won [Buddy Jewell] is off of the radar. She terrific!

      • Jeff

        She came in third, but is the most successful talent the show ever produced. She did win the Texas TruValue Country Showdown when she was just 16.

  • Christine

    Miranda Lambert is incredible. I’m glad she’s finally getting some recognition after “Revolution”…what a fantastic album.

    • Hannah

      Best CD ever!!

  • Matt

    She has deserved every award she’s won, including two ACM Album of the Year awards and an ACM Female Vocalist trophy! Here’s hoping she’ll snag herself a CMA for Female Vocalist as well. =) I’ve loved her ever since “Me and Charlie Talking,” her first single, and she’s done nothing but get better!

    • Jonathan

    • Tamra Kester

      I totally agree!!! She is WONDERFUL! LOVE, LOVE HER!

    I love Miranda Lambert. She never disappoints. Only Prettier is my favorite song on Revolution and I’m glad she decided to release it as a single. Great video. She is by far the BEST and most REAL women in country music right now. Keep up the good work miranda.

    • Gabby

      Jennifer Nettles from Sugarland is pretty awesome and “real” as well. But yeah, Miranda Lambert is one of the best country artists around right now. Love, love her.

  • Leah

    Loved the video! Miranda is awesome as always and it looks like the girls had a ball together! Revolution is just a great album.

  • the girl

    I’m not familiar with Miranda Lambert, but I love this song and the video is wonderful. All of the women were crazy with their double roles but Laura Bell Bundy took the cake to me. All in all I’d say I’m glad to have met her with this song.

    Miranda is the futture of country music. I have seen her in Houston, at the rodeo, in Reliant Stadium. The accoustics inside were far from good, but she rocked the house! Get Revolution and rock out when she does Maintain the Pain.
