Miranda Lambert’s new video for ‘How Dare You Love” goes dog-crazy.

“How Dare You Love,” the latest single from Miranda Lambert’s album Wildcard, dropped a lyric video yesterday (Wednesday, June 22), and it’s a doggone good time.

Fans submitted videos through Lambert’s social media channels, according to Oklahoma City newspaper The Oklahoman, and the results were stitched together into the lyric video, which usually precedes a music video release by a few weeks.

Lambert’s animal advocacy is well-known; as she started the MuttNation Foundation in 2009 with her mom Bev.

Here at Dog O’Day, as dog lovers and huge fans of country music, we’ve covered plenty of snapshot highlights from her career, including meeting Doug the Pug and putting Instagram to good use.

“How Dare You Love” was written by Lambert, her fellow Pistol Annies member Ashley Monroe, and Jamie Kinney.

“How Dare You Love” combines intense vulnerability, devil-may-care nonchalance and weatherbeaten voice of experience, the three primary strains of Lambert’s music so far in her career.

While a bit repetitive, the mellow and subdued tone is a nice throwback to songs like “Greyhound Bound for Nowhere” from Kerosene and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s “Desperation” and “More Like Her.”

We tried keeping track of how many good doggos appeared during this video, but lost track somewhere after 60. We’d estimate a couple hundred are shown altogether, and that makes it a very solid video in our opinion.

Wildcard released on November 1, 2019, and is her seventh major record, following Kerosene (2005), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (2007), Revolution (2009), Four the Record (2011), Platinum (2014) andThe Weight of These Wings (2016).

As part of the side project band Pistol Annies, Lambert has been part of three albums: 2011’s Hell on Heels, 2013’s Annie Up and 2018’s Interstate Gospel.
