Miranda Lambert wrote this song with her good friend, and frequent collaborator, Natalie Hemby. “Natalie had the title, 'White Liar,' and we thought it was great,” Lambert explained. “I started playing a little bit of a tune to it on the guitar, and we just started writing. It happened really fast. We wrote it in about 20 minutes. Cheating in a small town is what this song is all about.” The accompanying video featured country artist Jamey Johnson as a minister at a wedding, with her parents and band members playing the role of ceremony guests.
