As previously announced, Miranda Lambert recently recorded a song for the Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara crime comedy Hot Pursuit. “Two of a Crime” has now been released and Country Music’s #CMchat has it here for your listening pleasure.
“Two of a Crime” definitely sounds like a movie song, and doesn’t sound very country at with the opening guitar wailing speaker feedback metal sound, until you hear Miranda’s voice. The opening notes are also dipped in a Latin flavor, leading into what you would imagine would be a more salsa-sounding tune. Instead, Miranda’s vocals burst through the maracas, sounding like a typical hit Miranda, Natalie Hemby, and Nicolle Galyon song.
Creating a Latin-country fusion, or “Mexicountry,” the song blends the two lead actresses’ backgrounds in one track. Fans immediately began responding to the video on YouTube, saying things from Miranda could sing the phone book and still win all the awards to Miranda could sing anything and I’d still be happy, this isn’t country to people wishing that there was more Miranda and less foreign instrumentals. Let us know what you think of the song by tweeting us @CMchatLIVE!
Listen to Miranda Lambert’s “Two of a Crime”
Miranda wrote the song with frequent collaborators Natalie Hemby and Nicolle Galyon (“Automatic”). The notes from Reese were that she wanted to have a “Southern and a Latin flavor” represented in the song. Miranda’s recording of “Two of a Crime” will be available at iTunes on April 28th. New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures present, a Foxy/Pacific Standard production, an Anne Fletcher film, “Hot Pursuit.” Set to hit theaters on May 8, 2015, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
Tiera tip to the other half of my two of a crime in country music, Jen Swirsky, for her help on this post. I am still new to writing reviews. #CanTeachAnOldDog

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website CMChatLIVE.com. My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat.
It all started with a hunch…back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.)
I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
