Miranda Lambert’s “Two of a Crime” to Be Featured in Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara Comedy

Image Courtesy Sony Music NashvilleMiranda Lambert has written and recorded a new song for the upcoming Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara comedy, Hot Pursuit. The song is called "Two of a Crime," and Miranda wrote it after getting a text from Reese asking her to contribute a track to the movie. Reese wanted the song to mix Southern and Latin flavors, and Miranda was very inspired by the source material.

She says, "[The movie] was a bit of a Thelma and Louise theme and that’s totally up my alley. It is really so fun to be part of it. It was the first time I wrote a song specifically for a movie, so it was a different experience for me.”

"Two of a Crime" will be available on iTunes on April 28. The movie, Hot Pursuit, opens in theaters May 8.
