Miranda Lambert Returns With the Lovely Lilting New ‘Sweet By and By’

Off the upcoming 'Southern Family' compilation

Seemingly out of nowhere, Miranda Lambert has returned with a new song called “Sweet By and By,” a free-wheeling slow jam that’s taken from Dave Cobb’s upcoming Southern Family compilation. “Mama I have not forgotten / Lessons learned under the light of / The Southern starry sky,” she sings on the chorus as an organ howls away behind her. Hear it below.

Southern Family will also feature Zac Brown, Jason Isbell, Brandy Clark, Chris Stapleton, and more big country names. It’s out on March 18 via Low Country Sound, an imprint of Elektra Records.
