Miranda Lambert’s ‘Death By’ Drinking Game Is Sad Country Song Perfection You Can Blackout To

Why am I not one bit surprised that Miranda Lambert came up with this.

She has a brand new album out tomorrow, Palominoand of course, she’s been making the rounds doing all kinds of press to promote the new record.

And one of my favorite interviews so far comes from the LA Timeswhere she dropped details on a brilliant little drinking game she likes to play with her friends.

Called Death By, they each try to top someone else with the most miserable tune they can think of. If sad country songs make you as happy as they make me, then you’ll probably blackout playing this, and Miranda agrees:

“By the end we’re all drunk and crying and loving it.”

Sounds like my kinda game…

She didn’t detail all of the exact rules, but I’m sure you can get creative in terms of how exactly you want to run it.

One of Miranda’s secret weapons in terms of heart-wrenching songs is Doug Stone’s “I’d Be Better Off in a Pine Box”, and I have a feeling she usually comes out on top.

I think I’m gonna have to give this game a go over the weekend… probably while listening to Palomino.
