"It's a very, very personal song," Miranda Lambert tells Us of her new single, "Only You." It sure sounds like it. The country superstar penned the new single (off her latest disc, Four The Record, out November 1) with her husband, Blake Shelton, about the death of his brother in a 1990 car crash.
So why didn’t Shelton sing it himself? She explains: "I asked him a year ago, 'Do you want this song? It's obviously about your life.' And he said he'd rather me have it, mainly because he wasn't sure he could get through it every night onstage. It's one of our favorite songs."See if it's your favorite Lambert track, too, by taking a listen above.
