Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris Drop New Song 'Way Too Pretty for Prison'

The country songstresses sing about staying out of the big house in a tune they released Sunday night.

Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris have no interest in spending time behind bars.

After teasing their new collab for months, the country music superstars dropped their new song, "Way Too Pretty for Prison," and it's a fun, comedic take on wanting to get revenge on a no-good, cheatin' man -- and why they won't go through with it.

"He cheated, he's a villain/ And you know I'd help you kill him/ But we're way too pretty for prison/ Hard time ain't our kind of living," the song explains, before detailing the harrowing existence that is life in the big house.

"They don't have rhinestone ball and chains/ Lunch trays don't come with Chardonnay/ The bars there ain't got boys to buy us drinks," the song opens, before later reflecting, "Well, the state won't pay for lash extensions/ No Sun Tan City, not to mention/ that lack of waxing situation."

However, it's clear Lambert and Morris put a lot of thought into how they'd actually commit the crime if so inclined: "Antifreeze and Gatorade/ Arsenic in his lemonade/ Takes just one snip to bleed his brakes/ But we ain't gonna do it."

Hours before releasing the song, Lambert took to Instagram to share a black-and-white snapshot of her and Morris, smiling together in the audience at an awards snow.

She later revealed how the song came together. "This song was inspired by a wine night I had with @karenfairchild. I always tell my friends, 'don’t leave if you’ve been drinking, because you’re way too pretty for prison,' and the Love Junkies and I turned that into a song," Lambert wrote. "@marenmorris sang her a** off on it. #TexasGirls."

Maren was also thrilled to share the track, Instagramming: "'Lunch trays don’t come with Chardonnay, the bars there ain’t got boys to buy us drinks...' When @mirandalambert told me about this song back at the ACMs, I knew it’d be full of wit and some Texan bite. Happy I could be a partner-in-avoiding crime on it with her. 'Way Too Pretty for Prison' is out now!"

ET caught up with Morris on the red carpet at the 2019 ACM Awards, where she opened up about hitting the road with Lambert this year, and teased the possibility of working together on a song.

"We’re going on tour together later this fall, so maybe we’ll write a song together when we’re out. ... I mean, she’s such a great friend. And to be able to support her on the road this year, it’s going to be really fun for me. And I feel like I am going to learn a lot."

"Way Too Pretty for Prison" will appear on Lambert's upcoming album, Wildcard, which drops Nov. 1.
