Miranda Lambert Survives a Crash, Continues Her Chase in ‘Vice’ Video
Miranda Lambert teased her "Vice" music video on her social accounts with images of broken glass. The full video shows Lambert at the helm of a car crash — representative of the greater crash-and-burn she sings about.
The nearly four-minute video begins with the image of a car flipped over and glass shattered on the ground. A closer glance shows Lambert laying on the inside of the car with her arm out the window. She's okay, though, and soon finds herself climbing out of the car to hunt down a drink. She puts her cowboy boots on and looks back at the wreckage before moving into town.
As she slowly walks through the city, she finds the local bar, which is empty except for the bartender. A few drinks in, she leaves and finds herself at a crossroads looking for another thing to chase in the middle of an intersection, when a black car appears and she hops in. And she's off to her next vice.
The "Vice" video, directed by Trey Fanjoy, was filmed in Lambert’s home state of Texas in the town of Smithville. "Vice" was co-written by Lambert, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.
“I wrote this at the exact time of the sh– hitting the fan,” Lambert previously told the Tennessean. “I think it’s great, though. It’s documented on paper with emotion.”
While Lambert is open about some of the vices written about in the song being her own, she notes that everyone has his or her own vice.
“Everybody has a vice of some sort,” she says. “Sometimes when you’re going through something in your life, you may run to some things you shouldn’t and run from some things you shouldn’t. I think this song is an opportunity to just be honest and own it and say, ‘Yeah, I have some imperfections, and I live a life and here and there I might get in a pickle.’ It’s not about one thing or another."
