Miranda Lambert released a new lyric video for her song, “Dark Bars.”
Penned by Miranda and Liz Rose, the tune is featured on Miranda’s seventh studio album, Wildcard, which dropped in 2019.
“I started in honky tonks, you know, [age] 17, and I’ve always felt comfortable in those places, whether it’s on stage or just hanging out because it’s a non-judgment zone,” said Miranda to Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 in November 2019. “You know what I mean? I came from the Bible Belt and sang at church, and so when I started singing secular music, it was like, ‘Oh my goodness, you’re playing a bar on Saturday night, you’re missing church?’ But that’s where the lost people are, and I like the lost people because I’m lost too. You know what I mean? So ‘Dark Bars’ is definitely one that I felt like I kind of spoke the good clean truth on.”
Nashville natives and tourists may recognize a number of the bars featured in the new lyric video, including The Stage, Skull’s Rainbow Room, Robert’s Western World, Loser’s Bar & Grill and more.
