Why Singer Miranda Lambert Doesn’t Write Political Songs

Excerpt:

Don’t expect to hear Miranda Lambert talking politics on stage.

“I am a 100 percent believer in not ever using the platform that I’ve built for anything other than music,” the singer told Billboard magazine when asked about penning political tunes. “I don’t want to go to a show and hear somebody preach about their opinions.”

…But when I ask Lambert if she thinks that at this moment in history — with, among other things, this particular president in office — there is an opening for her to make the kind of issue-oriented songs Lynn became known for, Lambert is quick to dismiss the idea.

“I am a 100 percent believer in not ever using the platform that I’ve built for anything other than music, because music to me is an escape from your own reality. I don’t want to go to a show and hear somebody preach about their opinions.”

When I press her, she holds firm: “It’s so divided [in politics], you can’t win anyway — and what are you winning? For someone to agree with you, and now you’ve spoken your piece and pissed off many other people, just for one person to go, ‘She’s right’? It doesn’t do any good.”

Of course, Lambert could just as easily piss off some folks by refusing to talk politics — acknowledge their side one way or the other.
