Miranda Lambert’s Nod To Broadway Bars In Video
It seems like Lambert may have been dropping us hints about her new business venture all along. This past summer, she released a music video to her song “Dark Bars” off her 2019 album, Wildcard.
In the official lyric video, viewers get a tour of some of Nashville’s most iconic bars located on Broadway. Instead of showing the bars packed with people, you see an eerie version of deserted bars due to the pandemic. The video opens with a shot of the famous “I Believe in Nashville” sign and continues later with footage of vacant bars on Broadway and Printer’s Alley.
While the camera pans over unused beer taps and stacked stools, Lambert sings about her love for the ambiance of a dark bar.
I’m here for the habit
The pretty bartenders
The smoke and the mirrors
“The unhappy hour
The bitters and sours
Where nobody knows me
Where I can be lonely
