Dolly Parton began the unofficial saga on the iconic “Jolene,” and Cam continued it with “Diane.” And now Miranda Lambert supplies the sassy closing chapter on “Geraldene,” a cut from her new LP Palomino. All three cuts piece together to create a three-act play on infidelity, envy, and lust. “You’re trailer park pretty, but you’re never gonna be Jolene,” Lambert spits fire on the opening verse. Its groove is low-riding and bluesy, finding the singer/songwriter burning rubber with a ferocious, unforgiving emission.
