Watch Miranda Lambert Handle a Gun at Her RS Photo Shoot

October 6, 2009 1:59 PM ET

Miranda Lambert made her name singing about "gunpowder and lead" and covers Fred Eaglesmith's "Time to Get a Gun" on her new album Revolution, so she didn't mind swinging a pink-handled revolver around on the set of her Rolling Stone photo shoot (her close-up story appears in our new issue, on stands now).

Click above to go behind the session in Nashville and hear Lambert talk about which five albums she'd love to hear during the photo shoot: "Four of them would be taken up by the Merle Haggard box set Down Every Road," she says. Conveniently, we're big fans of Haggard, too: read editor Jason Fine's essential Haggard playlist, and check out photos of the badass legend's life.

As for the title of her new LP, the follow-up to 2007's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Lambert says, "It feels like something's changing, something new is coming and I feel like that about music right now and about this record I've made."

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
