Miranda Lambert and her The Marfa Tapes collaborators Jack Ingram and Jon Randall did more than write and record an album of raw and stripped down songs… they also put their enlightening five-day trip to film in something called The Marfa Tapes Film.
The full-length film will debut on Facebook on Saturday, May 8, just one day after the release of the new record. Fans can watch it right here.
The film follows Lambert, Ingram and Randall as they visit the small town of Marfa, Texas in November 2020 for a songwriting retreat. Inspiration from that writing trip led the three hitmakers to create magic… the result was The Marfa Tapes. As they wrote and recorded the album, they kept the camera rolling with the resulting film sharing an inside look at the making of the new music.
The five-day trek was brought on after the three long-time friends got together in 2015 to write for the first time together. It was during that first trip to Marfa that they wrote the ACM Song of the Year “Tin Man” and fan-favorite “Tequila Does.”
Miranda Lambert, Jack Ingram and Jon Randall’s The Marfa Tapes is out now.
