Country music star Miranda Lambert revealed on social media on Friday that she teamed up with Luke Dick in his song, “Polyester.”
Lambert took to Twitter to let her fans and followers know that Dick’s new record was being released.
“My good friend @lukedick has a new record out today. It’s the soundtrack to his bad ass documentary Red Dog,” Lambert wrote on Twitter. “I was lucky enough to get to sing with him on it. Y’all check it out here: http://ingroov.es/red-dog#polyester“
The official music video for “Polyester” premiered on YouTube on October 23. Listen to Luke Dick’s new song below.
Story Behind Miranda Lambert and Luke Dick Collab
The song featuring Lambert, “Polyester,” is part of the soundtrack to Red Dog, a documentary about a strip club in Oklahoma City where Dick’s mother Kim worked during his childhood. The documentary features interviews with the venue’s former employees and patrons. And, of course, the music is courtesy of Dick.
Dick said in a press release that the film is the his attempt to share his upbringing through the story of the bar.
“This soundtrack is directly inspired by the lives and characters in my documentary. For over 10 years, I interviewed my mother, fathers, dancers, musicians, cops and even some ghosts about the infamous Oklahoma City topless bar. They worked there, led their young lives there, and most of them lived to tell the tale,” Dick explains. “The concepts for the songs originated through so many personal experiences — through lives and hearts — and come out the other side of my weird brain … The record reflects the history of real people, wrapped up in backbeats and ballads, presented through swagger and sadness. On top of it all, it encapsulates joy, pain, hope and laughter.”
In addition to Lambert, the Red Dog soundtrack also features Dierks Bentley (“Blazer”), Natalie Hemby (“Mothers and Sons”), and Jackson Dean (“B Level Hustler”). Additionally, Patrick Carney of the Black Keys produced and sings on a song titled, “Oklahomie,” that he and Dick co-wrote. The full soundtrack from the documentary was released on Friday.
However, Lambert and Dick go back even further. Lambert, Dick, and Hemby co-wrote Lambert’s ACM- and CMA-nominated No. 1 hit “Bluebird.”
