  • Lambert was immediately attracted to this Nicolle Galyon, Natalie Hemby and Jimmy Robbins penned song. She told Billboard magazine: "I get pitched 100 'Gunpowder & Lead' and I'm like, 'give me something I can't write, I can write those all day long.' I like to hear things where I go, 'damn, I wish I'd written that.'"

    "Natalie [Galyon] is a freak of nature, she's such a great writer," Lambert added "I heard ["Girls"] and it was like, 'oh my gosh, it's so true.' Girls, we're so complicated, can't live with us, can't live without us. I feel like that song says that so well, it's so beautiful. Every girl I play it for is like, 'that's me!' and that's what you want, it's so relatable and powerful. Even guys, 'oh yeah, that's my girl, that's my wife, that's my mom, that's my daughter.' I love songs that make you feel something and this one definitely does."
