"Heart Like Mine" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Miranda Lambert. It was released in January 2011 as the fifth and final single from her third album Revolution. The song was written by Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Travis Howard.
"Heart Like Mine" is an uptempo country in the key of A♭ major song backed primarily by electric guitar, banjo, and steel guitar. The song's female narrator describes being a little rough around the edges ("I ain’t the kind you take home to mama / I ain’t the kind to wear no ring"). However she ignores the criticism of her family and peers, stating that Jesus would understand a "heart like [hers]."
The song received positive reviews from music critics. C.M. Wilcox of The 9513 gave the song a thumbs up, referring to the single as a safe choice for radio, but favorably describing the lyrics as "uniquely Miranda." Kyle Ward of Roughstock gave the song four-and-a-half stars out of five, complimenting its "exceptionally strong melody" that works well with the song's production. He concluded that the song is a "catchy number [...] made for radio."
"Heart Like Mine" debuted at number 58 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week ending January 8, 2011. It also debuted at number 95 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart for the week of February 26, 2011, and at number 95 on the Canadian Hot 100 chart for the week of April 2, 2011. The song became Lambert's second Number One hit on the Hot Country Songs chart for the week dated May 28, 2011.
