The country singer slammed sexism in the music industry! Miranda Lambert may have reached the top spot in the charts, but that does not make her completely happy because she needed a collab with a man, Jason Aldean to be exact, to accomplish that goal!
Their song titled ‘Drowns the Whiskey’ is the one that reached no. 1 and while it may be a coincidence that her first chart-topper was a collab with a man, Miranda can’t help but be a little bit suspicious.
Miranda Lambert actually had to wait no less than five years before one of her songs topped Billboard’s Country Airplay!
While the star is obviously not upset about it, she blames sexism.
During an interview with The Washington Post, she explained: ‘Yes, I had to sing with somebody with a penis to get a Number. 1. I do like this person, Jason Aldean, quite a lot…so it was a great song with an old friend.’
She went on to talk about some statistics she found quite strange.
‘It is interesting that I have not had even a Top 20 in a very long time. And then it goes No. 1 because it is a dude.’
She added that ‘But you know — if we went and looked at how many singles or how many records were sold for the Top 10 songs right now, I would probably triple it on record sales. So it does not matter.’
After all, this is not the only song with which she’s been really high on the charts lately!
For instance, Miranda also got another no. 1 spot with a second collab, this time with a woman – Carrie Underwood.
