"Mama's Broken Heart" Comes Out of Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's Wedding

Columbia NashvilleWithout her wedding to Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert might never have had “Mama’s Broken Heart.”

Miranda’s latest single was written by Kacey Musgraves, who has a hit of her own with “Merry Go ‘Round.” The two are both from Texas and reconnected at Blake & Miranda’s rehearsal dinner, where Kacey’s sister was the photographer.

“At our rehearsal dinner, I went over and asked her, I was like, ‘Are you gonna cut this song, or can I have it?’” Miranda tells The Country Vibe. “And she was like, ‘I’ll think about it for a couple of days.’”

In the end, Kacey emailed Miranda with a deal. She could cut the song if Kacey could sing harmony.

“I had to actually beg for this song, and so I’m thankful that she gave it to me ’cause I love ‘Mama’s Broken Heart.’” Miranda says. “It’s an awesome song, and it’s been goin’ really well live, and I plan on makin’ an awesome video for it.”
