"Baggage Claim"

The country fire-starter who brought you "Gunpowder & Lead" gets back to what she does best: torching shit. Here, it's her needy man's baggage; putting it on the curb won't do. "Come and pick it up before I blow it up in flames," she belts. The emotional-baggage metaphor gets tortured, but the track is a funky country blues with a Zeppelin musk. Lambert simmers – a good-natured gal spitting hickory-smoked venom.
