Miranda Lambert Sings About Another Crazy Girl in "Mama's Broken Heart"

Randee St. NicholasMiranda Lambert is known for singing songs about crazy ex-girlfriends and the fastest girls in town. Now she's at it again with the tale of a girl gone crazy because of a breakup, "Mama's Broken Heart."

"I love the hot mess that the girl in it is," Miranda tells ABC News Radio.  "It's cool to me.  It has good imagery."

Though Miranda writes a lot of her own songs, "Mama's Broken Heart" was actually penned by country newcomer Kacey Musgraves.  Miranda was glad this song found its way to her.

She says, "A lot of people don't send me songs because I am a writer, but I'm still a sponge.  I want to hear everything, and when I heard it, I was like, 'I have to have this song.'"

"Mama's Broken Heart" is the latest single from Miranda's album, Four the Record.
