Miranda Lambert revealed live on Ryan Seacrest ON AIR that she wrote a song, “Two of a Crime”, after being asked by Reese Witherspoon to contribute a track for the upcoming comedy, “Hot Pursuit.”
Miranda explains, “Reese texted me and told me about the movie and wanted me to write something or sing or both. I got inspired. I love Reese and Sofia. It was a bit of a “Thelma and Louise” theme and that’s totally up my alley. It is really so fun to be part of it. It was the first time I wrote a song specifically for a movie, so it was a different experience for me.”
Miranda wrote the song with frequent collaborators Natalie Hemby and Nicolle Galyon. The notes from Reese were that she wanted to have a “Southern and a Latin flavor” represented in the song. Miranda’s recording of “Two of a Crime” will be available at iTunes on April 28th and “Hot Pursuit” is set to hit theaters on May 8, 2015.
