Netflix’s Queer Eye is headed to Texas for its newest season, and the show recruited country icon Miranda Lambert to compose a new song for the occasion.
“Here’s one last surprise for y’all this year!” Lambert posted on Instagram. “A new song will be out on 12/31 to celebrate the new season of @QueerEye that filmed all in Texas!”
With season 6 of the show now available on Netflix, viewers can enjoy the lyric video for “Y’all Means All,” which lays the three-time Grammy winner’s track over footage from the new episodes.
“I’m proud to be part of this amazing show that does so much good,” Lambert wrote on Twitter. The singer-songwriter credited her brother Luke with coming up with the song’s title, which in itself combines Queer Eye’s inclusive spirit with Texas-flavored language.
In 2019, Lambert, her husband Brendan McLoughlin, Luke and his husband, Marc, attended the WorldPride parade in New York City.
That same year, Lambert spoke of supporting her brother when he came out as gay. “I support him 100 percent in whatever he does,” she said. “He’s a brilliant individual and the most amazing person — just so genuine. Growing up in the same household, we’re way different. I’m still pretty much a country girl at heart, and he lives in Austin and he’s way cooler than me. He has no accent. He doesn’t really like country music, but he did call me and tell me he loved this record, which meant a lot coming from him.”
In an interview this year with GLAAD, Lambert discussed making the video for “Tequila Does (Telemitry Remix),” which features McLoughlin and his brothers, as well as Luke and many members of the LGBTQ+ community.
“I feel like as a country artist, I get to lift them up and stand on that platform with them, and it makes me so happy,” Lambert said. “The fact that all of our friends came together … it makes me proud and humbled, and they’re so much fun.”
She also discussed supporting the LGBTQ+ community as a country artist. “I do think we are in a moment of change, and I have so much to learn. I’m always sensitive. I always call my brother and … want to make sure I say the right things,” she shared. “I know I’m uneducated, but I’m full of love. So if I say the wrong things, or don’t use the right language, it only comes from a place of me trying to learn … it’s me learning and figuring out how I can be part of the change and part of the community and still be the same person I’ve been as an artist for the past 20 years. I don’t see why those worlds can’t mesh. I speak up about things I care about.”
“Y’all Means All” is available on all streaming platforms.
