Miranda Lambert congratulated Morgan Wallen on the number-one success of a song called “Thought You Should Know” that she co-wrote with Morgan. Miranda posted to Instagram a black and white photo of herself, Wallen, and the song’s third co-writer, Nicolle Galyon.

She captioned the post, “Congrats @morganwallen on your number 1 song “Thought You Should Know.” Proud to be a writer on a song about your mama! This is the first number 1 song I’ve ever had as a writer. We did good that day y’all. Cheers friends. @nicatnitemusic.”

The song’s first verse includes the lyrics, “What’s goin’ on, mama? / Something just dawned on me / I ain’t been home in some months / Been chasin’ songs and women / Makin’ some bad decisions / God knows I’m drinkin’ too much / Yeah, I know you’ve been worrying ’bout me / You’ve been losin’ sleep since ’93.”

The chorus goes, “I thought you should know / That all those prayers you thought you wasted on me / Must’ve finally made their way on through / I thought you should know / I got me a new girl down there in Jefferson City, and / She lets me fish whenever I want to / Yeah, I’m still proud of where I came from / Still your only damn son / Can you believe I’m on the radio? / Just thought you should know, thought you should know, thought you should know.”

Lambert recently spent some time in her home state of Texas and has been writing songs with an old friend. She is pretty proud of a rhyme she made with her buddy about The King Of Country Music himself, George Strait. She posted some photos of herself and Wade Bowen with guitars in hand to Twitter.

Lambert captioned the post on Twitter, “Me and @wadebowen have been friends for over 20 years, and we finally sat down and wrote a song together for the first time yesterday in the TX sunshine. Well, actually, 2 songs. And one of them, we might have rhymed George Strait w/ chicken fried steak. Prolly my fav rhyme ever!”
