Snag this hit song Miranda Lambert "Only Prettier" (MP3 Single)
"Only Prettier" is the title of a song co-written and recorded by American country artist Miranda Lambert. It was released in July 2010 as the fourth single from her third studio album, Revolution. In December 2010, it reached a peak of number 12 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, giving Lambert her seventh Top 20 hit.
Only Prettier" is an up-tempo song in the key of A♭ major backed by electric and steel guitars and percussion. The song's female narrator, a typical rough-and-rowdy country girl, finds herself facing off with a stereotypical model-thin city girl ("I got a mouth like a sailor and yours is more like a Hallmark card"). Although the song's verses find the narrator describing the differences between the two, she offers in the chorus that the two actually have quite a lot in common ("You got your friends, just like I got mine") and that they should put their differences aside ("So let's shake hands and reach across those party lines"). Though, she gets the last word in, stating that "[country girls are] just like you, only prettier."
Lambert relates to the song as her own anthem: "It?s antagonistic in a fun way, and I loved the attitude behind it. It kind of fools you, because it?s got this really country, laid-back intro, but then it?s balls-to-the-wall the rest of the way. It?s so much fun!"
Co-writer Natalie Hemby told The Boot that she and Lambert wanted the song to be "clever." She referred to the lyrics as being like "a smack in the face, but you don't realize it. It's like wait ... did you just insult me?
