Hard Staying Sober

  • Miranda Lambert embraces traditional Country on this tune, which she wrote with Natalie Hemby and Luke Laird. The singer grew up with the sounds of Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard playing throughout the house.

    "'Hard Staying Sober' definitely reminds me of some of that sound," she told CMT News. "Also, when I hear 'Hard Staying Sober' or sing it ... it just immediately feels like I want to be in Gruene Hall [the historic concert venue in New Braunfels, Texas.] Like, I just want to go to Texas and play in a bar right now and have a beer, you know? It's just so honky-tonk, it makes me feel at home, like where I came from."
