  • Lyrics
  • Miranda Lambert penned this song for a Ram trucks commercial. "I am very inspired by what the Ram brand stands for - being who you are, working hard, staying true to your roots," Lambert said. "I wanted to write a song that would represent all of those things. "Roots and Wings" is personal to me about where I come from and where I am going. The guys at Ram really made the lyrics come to life with the imagery, and I hope it speaks to people the way it does to me."
  • Fans responded to the track's lyrics and the country setting of the ad, so Lambert released a longer version accompanied by a complete music video. "I've seen so many positive reactions to the song and the partnership with Ram," the singer said. "The song is just so special and personal to me, and it is so amazing what the Ram team did to bring it to life that I want my fans to see it, too."
