Over You-Miranda Lambert (RCA)

This here is the second single off what is surely her most mature album yet. It contains the required bad-girl songs, but she’s not plotting murder on ‘em this go round. That’s a bit more grown-up, fer sur’. The ballads are also more world-wise. This song has very few lines in it. True genius is on display when something deep and intense is being expressed with the fewest few words. Consider this peach of a phrase: You went away. How dare you. One other great thing is the timing. She tells us he left in December and it is now near February…which will be the month it’ll be moving into the Top 10. The woman’s in the zone.
