Miranda Lambert Covers Cosmopolitan Magazine’s ‘First-Ever Country Issue’

With an assist from Barnes & Noble, Spotify and Snapchat

Can a guy singing “Satisfy Me” fit into the editorial purview of Cosmopolitan magazine, a publication that typically highlights the opposite end of the male-female sexual flow? In the case of the August 2017 edition, which the Hearst magazine is heralding as its “First-Ever Country Issue,” the answer is a resounding yes.

Anderson East’s rousing ditty “Satisfy Me” is part of a special Spotify Summer Playlist curated by cover girl Miranda Lambert. Other songs chosen by Lambert include Bryan Adams “Summer of ’69,” Roger Miller’s “King of the Road” and a couple of her own tunes.

The issue is on its way to subscribers now and scheduled to hit newsstands this weekend. Inside, there is a piece about rising country stars and the magazine has lined up special Snapchat geofilters for all the locations listed by Lambert as her favorite Nashville spots.

Cosmopolitan has also partnered with Barnes & Noble to showcase the issue together with CDs and vinyl of some of the featured country artists.
