We like making pop music, but we like making hardcore music at the same time, mixing them, but they’ve got, like, soul. It’s not like weak, superficial sh*t. You know?”

Lady Gaga has yet another artist to cover one of her songs – Miranda Lambert. After the Grammy’s two Sundays ago, Lambert went on a tweeting rampage about how wonderful Gaga was and how great of a relationship they had.
“Wonder what my new friend
@ladygaga is up to today? Hehe:)” Lambert tweeted the morning after the Grammy’s.
Now, Lambert has gone about covering one of Lady Gaga’s songs, Yoü and I. When you think about it, the cover is not that out-of-the-ordinary. Yoü and I is easily the most country song a pop artist has ever done and It seems to draw a big country base of fans towards Gaga.
On February the 19th, Lambert debuted the cover. It has her own version of country ‘twang’ along with the new lyrics of “North Carolina” instead of “Nebraska”. You can view it below.
The question, however, is if Gaga would even try to do her own version of “Gunpowder and Lead” on her Born This Way ball tour set for later this year. Who knows!
