Miranda Lambert has scored her fifth No. 1 single with “Mama’s Broken Heart.” She knew she wanted to record the track, written by Kacey Musgraves, Shane McAnally and Brandy Clark, the moment she heard it.
“The reason I love this song is because it’s about how sometimes when you get your heart broken, you kinda go a little bit crazy,” she said. “You drink too much, you smoke too much, you cut your hair … you find a rebound. Sometimes your mama, if she’s like my mama, has to slap you around and say, ‘Straighten up, girl!’”
Miranda also took to Twitter soon after learning she’d topped the charts to thank her fans. “It never gets old knowing that people enjoy my music. Thanks for playing it, buying it and coming to see it live,” she tweeted.
