Did You Know Miranda Lambert’s “Bluebird” Was Inspired By a Poem?

0  comments

Miranda Lambert’s “Bluebird” was released in 2019 as the second single off her studio album Wildcard, and it quickly brought the country singer back to the charts. The song is Lambert’s first No. 1 hit on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart as a solo artist after seven years – with “Over You” in 2012 being the last one.

Just three days after getting married to Brendan McLoughlin, Miranda Lambert sat down with songwriters Luke Dick and Natalie Hemby to write the song inspired by Charles Bukowski’s 1992 poem of the same name.

But the trio put a spin to their song – with love on Miranda Lambert‘s mind, they’ve added and tweaked the lyrics that best represented the country singer’s life at that time. While the poem is a dark story of imaginative captivity, Lambert’s “Bluebird” is a hopeful song filled with positivity.

According to Lambert, she has never written quite like “Bluebird” before, and she’s proud to be part of it as the song reminds her to open her eyes to what’s around her. Ever since writing the song, she’s starting to see bluebirds everywhere and doing so now means so much more to her – comparing it to finding a little piece of hope.

It was no longer a surprise how “Bluebird” grew into one of the most appreciated tunes among Miranda Lambert’s songs. 

The heartwarming ballad did not only receive favorable reviews from critics, but it has also been heavily nominated. It earned two Grammy Awards nominations: Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song. It was also nominated for Single of the Year and Song of the Year during the 54th CMA Awards.

It was also accompanied by a music video that took home the CMA Award for Video of the Year.
