The new release, The Weight Of These Wings, not only debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, it spawned two GRAMMY Award nominations for BEST COUNTRY SOLO PERFORMANCE and BEST COUNTRY SONG for the album’s lead single “Vice.”
Also, The Weight Of These Wings has appeared on numerous music critic’s 2016 Year End Best of Lists including Billboard (#1), Rolling Stone (#2), Us Weekly (#2), Cosmopolitan (#4), Variety (#4), Entertainment Weekly (#5), Vulture (#7) and NPR (#9) amongst many others.
In addition, the song “Highway Vagabond” which appears among the 24 tracks that comprise the album, has lent its title for Lambert’s new tour aptly called the Highway Vagabond Tour which kicks off January 26th in Evansville, Indiana.
Lambert’s sixth studio album, The Weight Of These Wings, has continued to garner praise from the media:
“It is, though, Lambert’s least exuberant album, and also her best—one of the year’s best, in fact.”
– The New Yorker
“If ever there was any question, this multifaceted and distinctly modern work ought to lay it to rest: Lambert is the most fascinating and unfettered singer-songwriter of her country generation.”
“On her 24-track double album, the new country generation’s leading outlaw balances humor, regret, love and anger in the brutally blunt way that only she can.”
– Rolling Stone
“…her piercing voice breaks in just the right places when her mood grows downcast, and explodes into colorful curlicues when she’s enthused, or peeved.”
– The New York Times
“…marvelous 24-track masterwork.”
– Us Weekly
“ ‘The Weight of These Wings’ matches the take-no-prisoners attitude of her lyrics with music that travels unexpected routes but often winds up touching the soul.”
– The Boston Globe
“Across 24 contemplative songs, Lambert aches without wallowing. She daydreams without self-delusion. And that brilliant twang in her voice sounds more anchored, more experienced.
If sorrow can congeal into wisdom, this is what it sounds like.”
– The Washington Post
The Weight Of These Wings, Lambert’s double album, is produced by Frank Liddell, Glenn Worf, and Eric Masse.
