Miranda Lambert on Fear of the NYC Subway: 'My Husband Is Trying to Get Me to Chill out About It'

The 'Wildcard' singer loves the art, not the trains

Miranda Lambert is back with her brand new album, Wildcard, which came out November 1st and features the hit single, "It All Comes Out In The Wash."

Miranda sat down with Kelly Ford from New York's Country 94.7 to talk about her relationship with New York City and the impact it had on her writing process for her seventh studio album.

Kelly points out that "Pretty Bitchin'" and "Locomotive" are two great songs for her early morning subway commute, but it turns out Miranda is afraid of the subway. "The subway is still scary to me," she says, even though the country superstar is married to an NYPD Officer. "My husband is trying to get me to chill out about it," she adds.

"I don't know how to navigate it. I'm scared of the stops. I know I won't pay attention - I'm ADD - so I'll be daydreaming and miss my place to get out."

Another track with a clear NYC inspiration is "Fire Escape."

"I've never had a fire escape before until being here. So, of course I had to write about it. It's new," she says. "It's still new. Being from a tiny town in East Texas, all of it's so crazy. I've been here a hundreds times, so getting to just kinda disappear and really get in the culture of the city, it was so good for my creativity and inspiration, because it's something different."

Miranda explains that the "what you see is what you get" mentality of New Yorkers makes her feel at home. She says that Texans have that same charm that makes her feel like the people she meets are genuine and not fake. "It's like Southern hospitality, but Northern style," she laughs.

Miranda Lambert's new album, Wildcard, is now available everywhere.
