Miranda Lambert’s latest musical project is a family affair in more ways than one.
The Grammy-winning country artist on Tuesday unveiled the video for Telemitry’s remix of “Tequila Does”, a track from “Wildcard” from 2019. Much of the buzz surrounding the clip centered around Lambert’s husband , Brendan McLoughlin, who shows off his chiseled physique in a steamy cameo with his brothers, KC and Patrick.
But “Tequila Does”, which was directed by Reid Long, also features an appearance by the singer’s brother, Luke Lambert, and her husband, Marc. Together, the group is enjoying an all-inclusive celebration in Nashville, complete with frozen cocktails and rainbow floats. Given that country music is still considered a conservative genre, it’s a refreshing surprise to see a married gay couple appear so prominently.

“Being in a family where I am surrounded by LGBTQ people, it made me learn and understand how I can be part of the change and still be the same person that I have been as an artist for 20 years,” said Miranda Lambert told GLAAD. in an interview on Thursday. “I don’t see why these worlds can’t fit together. I talk about things that are close to my heart! If I can be a part of this change in any way… I still want to.
The singer has been a staunch supporter of LGBTQ rights for years, and in 2019 she and Luke attended New York’s LGBTQ Pride Parade together. After sharing snapshots of the festivities on Instagram, however, her fans were divided, with some vowing to speak out against her music from then on.
“I feel like the people who commented negatively weren’t my followers,” she later told PrideSource. “Also, I don’t understand why people have time to go on social media and be negative. I think they should have a hobby or a job, or both. … But I also know that if you polarize, you have to have an impact. Can’t be loved by everyone. So I try to take the voucher and run with it.
As for her relationship with Luke, she told GLAAD this week: “We’ve come a long way since he struggled and figured that out until now being in this video with me. It’s been a bond between brothers and really cool sisters for us and for our family. ”
