Miranda Lambert has always been open about the fact that she puts her feelings into her music. As she told music writer Holly Gleason in an interview with HITS Daily Double, "I am who I am. I am honest about being flawed. That's all I can be, you know? I cuss. I drink. I get divorced and get my heart broken. I break hearts."
Most recently, during a concert stop in Long Island, New York on her Bandwagon Tour, the singer and songwriter shared more of her personal feelings. As People reports, before going into the song "The House That Built Me," Lambert’s guitarist started playing, stopped, and then started again after a short pause. "Sometimes you gotta start over," Lambert told the audience.
She continued "I’m making my goal every time I walk on this stage to make you feel something before you leave here,” she said to the crowd. “Sometimes in country music, feeling something means feeling sad and I do, so I wrote about it. Sing along if you know it; This one’s called ‘Tin Man.’"
The tour stop wasn't all sad feelings though. Lambert brought out tour mates Little Big Town to the stage to end the show with songs including "Girl Crush" and a cover of the Dixie Chicks’ "Goodbye Earl". Then she and the group all took sips from a bottle of Fireball whiskey that a fan had handed to Lambert.
They closed out the show with a cover of "Lean On Me," and the night's first opening performer, Canadian singer Tenille Townes, came out to join Lambert and Little Big Town. But the Turnpike Troubadors, the other opening act, didn't show up for the closing number. The band is fronted by Lambert’s reported boyfriend, Evan Felker.
The couple has been in the middle of drama since news of their relationship broke, with Lambert's ex-husband Blake Shelton shading her new relationship, while Staci Felker, Evan's estranged wife, did the same.
The Turnpike Troubadours will be on tour with Miranda Lambert & Little Big Town until August 23.
