Miranda Lambert’s ‘Automatic’ Video Takes a Nostalgic Look at Life
Folks from East Texas can appreciate the simpler things in life. Life moves a little slower around here, and that’s OK. Lindale’s Miranda Lambert reflects on that life brilliantly in her brand new video for ‘Automatic,’ released Tuesday (March 25).
From cassette tapes to old treasures hiding in a trunk in the attic, Miranda takes a nostalgic look at life in her new video. The song speaks to today’s society, surrounded by products and technology that seemingly do everything for us.
It’s a much different time than it used to be, and ‘Automatic’ is a great message for that. Miranda sings about driving a truck with “three on a tree,” recording music straight from the radio onto a blank cassette, or simply just working for what we receive.
“It’s not about going back, but reminiscing about what it was like to hang laundry on the line and wait for it to dry and my dad teaching me how to drive my ’55 Chevy that I still have but don’t drive nearly enough,” Lambert told Taste of Country.
Hey, whatever happened to waitin’ your turn
Doing it all by hand,
‘Cause when everything is handed to you
It’s only worth as much as the time put in
It all just seemed so good the way we had it
Back before everything became automatic
If you appreciate the simpler things in life, chances are Miranda Lambert’s ‘Automatic’ is going to be your personal anthem for a while. Good words from an East Texas girl.
‘Automatic’ is the first single off Lambert’s new album ‘Platinum,’ which hits the shelves June 3.
