All That's Left

  • This throwback Dixie Hall and Tom T. Hall penned Western swing track is Lambert's rootsiest cut ever. She first heard the tune while listening to Bluegrass Junction on SiriusXMon SiriusXM as she drove home from a Beyoncé concert. "My husband (Blake Shelton) had the idea to do the song Western- swing-style," she told Rolling Stone. "I hate it when he's right."
  • Nashville Western swing ensemble The Time Jumpers guest on the song. "We decided to record it western swing and get cool harmonies, and have fiddles, which meant we had to have The Time Jumpers on it," said Lambert. "They're the most talented people in the whole world, in one band. It's ridiculous."
  • The Time Jumpers boasts Vince Gill as a member. "Miranda gets that world. She's a Texas girl. She gets what that music is," Gill told Rolling Stone. "I've always liked her because she's got spunk and she knows what she wants to do. She has that thing. It's driven inside of her and you can tell that when you're around her."
