Courtney Cole Says Touring With Miranda Lambert Was the “Best Education of My Life”


What’s it like to tour with Miranda Lambert? If you’re Courtney Cole, it’s pedicures and Cheetos. Oh, and education by observation. The singer-songwriter sat down with me recently to talk about her new song, “Free 99,” and her recent trek with the “Vice” songstress.

The female empowerment she felt from Miranda has carried over into her work. “Free 99” is a sassy tune about why men should buy women drinks when they’re out. Girls have it tough, when it comes to all that we have to put into “looking good,” so Courtney deduces that men should’ve complain about buying a few drinks.
