"Bluebird" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Miranda Lambert. It was released on December 9, 2019, as the second single from Lambert's seventh studio album Wildcard. The album was released on November 1, 2019.

Composition[edit]

Lambert wrote the song with Luke Dick and Natalie Hemby, and described the song as "special," saying that "It's got this hope to it. It's got a darkness too, though, but it's also hopeful. Life is going to give you lemons, period. If there wasn't problems then we wouldn't appreciate the great days, but going through those things and overcoming problems—whatever they are—makes us strong and appreciate the sun. You know, it's like ten straight days of rain and then the sun comes out and you're like, 'I forgot how much I loved it.' Since we wrote 'Bluebird,' I've been seeing bluebirds everywhere. And the bluebirds have been there, but I never saw them like I see them now. It kinda reminds me to open my eyes to what's around me."[1] It was partially inspired by a Charles Bukowski poem that mentions "keeping a bluebird in your heart."[2]

"Bluebird" was first released in August 2019 as the third promotional single from the album.[3]

"Bluebird" debuted at number 38 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart dated November 11, 2019, ahead of its release as a single.[4] It debuted at number 53 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart dated December 28, 2019.[5]
