Miranda Lambert imagines a different kind of life in her new single, 'If I Was a Cowboy'

She released the new single on Friday.

Miranda Lambert is kicking off a new musical chapter on Friday with the release of her dreamy, mid-tempo new single, “If I Was a Cowboy.”

The track paints a picture of life out on the open plains in the West, chasing freedom on horseback and seeing the world from under the brim of a Stetson hat.

Lambert co-wrote the song with acclaimed Nashville producer Jesse Frasure, whom she met earlier this year while working on a very different kind of project: The dance remix of her song, “Tequila Does.”

Both creators behind “If I Was a Cowboy” had to dig into their imaginations to write the song, Lambert explained, as neither of them have much personal experience with the Wild West.

“It’s funny, he’s a Detroit boy, and I’m an East Texan, but somehow we wrote a song about the Wild West together,” she said in a statement.

“If I Was a Cowboy” hits radio channels next week.

In addition to gearing up for new solo music, Lambert recently announced that her band The Pistol Annies -- also featuring Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe -- will have a new Christmas album out this year.

The album, out Oct. 22, is called "Hell Of A Holiday."
