Miranda Lambert is set to release an equality jam with a bold message of diversity on Friday (December 31), but the cast of Netflix’s Queer Eye can’t wait. They’re teasing “Y’all Means All” today.
Giving the country queen’s latest work a fitting home, the popular makeover show with a self-love message will use it as part of a special sixth season.
Feeling like an upbeat togetherness anthem with a no-judgement viewpoint, the track was previewed in Queer Eye’s season six trailer on Monday — offering a short-but-sweet taste of what’s to come. Energetic and bright, with a clap-and-stomp vibe and some joyful “heys” thrown in, the tune appears to be plucky celebration of Lambert’s sass-loving nature and everyone-matters spirit, and it helps frame the adventures ahead with a splash of hopeful positivity.
Featuring five gay men who use their skills to give others a brand new style — and a new sense of confidence — the sixth season of Queer Eye will premiere on Netflix the same day the song comes out (December 31). And for the first time, it was filmed entirely in Lambert’s native Texas.
“Put on your cowboy boots because Texas here we come,” the show wrote in a post on Twitter. “The new season rides in this Friday!”
It’s not the first time Lambert has acted in support of the LGBTQ+ community, and over the summer she was outspoken about wanting to advocate more. Her brother, Luke, is a gay man, and after she cast him and his friends in the dance-loving video for her “Tequila Does (Telemitry Remix),” she spoke with GLAAD about trying to do that advocacy the right way — both as a person and country artist.
“I do think we are in a moment of change and I have so much to learn,” she said. “I am always sensitive, I always call my brother because I want to make sure I say the right things … I know I am uneducated, but I am full of love. Being in a family where I am surrounded by LGBTQ people, it has me learning and figuring out how I can be a part of the change and still be the same person I have been as an artist for 20 years. I don’t see why those worlds can’t mesh. I speak up about things I care about! If I can be a part of this change in any way … I always want to do that.”
“Y’all Means All” will mark the first solo track Lambert has released since her recent single, “If I Were a Cowboy.” Earlier this year, she also teamed back up with her Pistol Annies trio to release their first Christmas album, Hell of a Holiday.
