Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Gunpowder & Lead. By Songfacts®.

In this song the narrator is sitting by the door one night with a gun, waiting for her abusive man to come home from jail. Lambert says the song was inspired by abused women who her family would take in over the years, and in particular one woman who came in crying with a black eye. Seeing firsthand what domestic abuse could do to a woman and her family, she wrote the song from their perspective.

Lambert is licensed to carry a handgun, and has a tattoo with two revolvers in the design on her forearm.

This was co-written by Miranda Lambert and Heather Little. The latter also co-wrote Lambert's 2003 debut single "Me and Charlie Talking."
