Miranda Lambert’s ‘Priscilla’ Gets Stamp of Approval from Priscilla Presley
It’s obvious Miranda Lambert is singing about her much-discussed life with husband Blake Shelton in the new song ‘Priscilla.’ And what better person to reach out to than one-half of country’s first famous couple? The ‘Platinum’ beauty never expected the song’s namesake to mention the song — so when Elvis’s ex-wife, Priscilla Presley, took to Instagram to encourage Lambert, it came as a big, happy surprise.
“@LisaPresley and I are listening to your song ‘Priscilla.’ Love it!” Wrote Presley, the ex-wife of the late King of country, on Instrgram, tagging Lambert. “Best of luck with your new album.”
Lambert was subsequently shocked, reposting the photo on her own Instagram and adding, “I never thought I would actually hear from the Queen herself!” It’s clear that Lambert was honored to have a stamp of approval from a woman who is both country royalty and no stranger to a life that is constantly scrutinized herself.
‘Priscilla’ is a humorous take on life in the public eye, poking fun at all the rumors and attention that follow Lambert and Shelton around.
“Priscilla, Priscilla / How’d you get him to yourself / Between the whistle calls and Southern dolls / It’s enough to put a home through Hell,” Lambert sings about the attention that her husband gets on a daily basis, often right in front of her. “Priscilla, Priscilla / He’s always in high demand / How do you or don’t you get the love you want when everybody wants your man / It’s a difficult thing being Queen to the King / And I feel ya / Priscilla.”
Lambert will kick off her Platinum Tour on July 10 and it will run through September, hitting 30 cities across America. Who knows, maybe Presley will come check out her song in person!
