Miranda Lambert Debuts New Single ‘Wranglers,’ Brings Out Reba McEntire at Stagecoach

Miranda Lambert‘s new single “Wranglers” is coming, and fans at Stagecoach got to hear it first. Reba McEntire got to hear it, too — because she showed up to Lambert’s stage as a surprise guest Saturday night (April 27).

Reba joined Lambert for a three-song finale of “Mama’s Broken Heart,” her own hit cover version of Bobbie Gentry‘s “Fancy” and “Gunpowder & Lead,” wrapping Lambert’s headlining set that featured the live debut of the unreleased “Wranglers.”

“@Reba at @stagecoach y’all,” Lambert wrote Sunday on X (formerly Twitter), reacting to the fun she had at the Indio, California, festival the night before. “Thank you to my hero and friend for coming out here as my special guest. I’ll never forget it. She brought all the fire.”

“What a night!!! Thanks @mirandalambert for asking me to be part of @Stagecoach last night. And thanks to all the #Countrymusic fans for sticking with us in that wind! #badasssisters #bas #stagecoach,” Reba posted on her own account.

“Wranglers” — written by Audra Mae, Evan McKeever and Ryan Carpenter, and recorded in Austin with co-producer Jon Randall — is set to be released on May 3. The song can be pre-saved here.

“‘Wranglers’ is a classic tale of a woman taking her power back,” Lambert said in a statement released to press. “I think we can all identify with the character in this song, because we have all had a time in our life where we needed to find our strength, and also get a little revenge on someone who did us wrong or hurt us. This offers such a cool, raging take on how something like this unravels. I think the songwriters nailed it.”

She added, “I am so proud to sing it. It feels like it could have been on the same record as Gunpowder & Lead in a lot of ways. ‘Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’ is a pretty powerful statement, and the way it’s written, you can tell, we’re not kidding.”
