This final song, "Mama's Broken Heart", was actually written by Kacey Musgraves. Musgraves and Lambert grew up in Texas together and would write songs together often. Kacey's sister actually shot pictures for Miranda and Blake Shelton's wedding. At the rehearsal dinner Miranda went up to Kacey and asked if she was going to cut the song or if she could have it. Kacey said she had to think about it but eventually gave it over to Miranda who released the song in January of 2013 as her fourth single from her album Four the Record.
