Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town wowed a crowd of fans when they teamed up for a surprise collaboration at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on July 29.
The two country acts unearthed the Dixie Chicks’ 2000 hit, “Goodbye Earl” from the trio’s fifth studio album, “Fly.”
Dressed in sparkly nylons and tan cowgirl boots, Miranda, who is no stranger to singing revenge tunes, took the lead of the comedic tune. Meanwhile, Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild, Jimi Westbrook, Kimberly Schlapman and Philip Sweet put their harmony vocals to work, making for one ultimate crowd pleaser.
If that’s not enough, fellow country singer Charlie Worsham was also on hand to play banjo during the performance.
With so much star power in one room, one might wonder what exactly brought them all together in one room?
Well, in February, Little Big Town began a first-ever yearlong residency at the Ryman Auditorium called “Little Big Town at the Mother Church. “They performed three sold-out shows over the weekend (July 28-30,) which also included appearances by surprise guests Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris and Ronnie Dunn. The quartet has more Ryman dates coming up in September and November. So, you can be sure to expect more surprises from those shows.
In addition to honoring the Dixie Chicks, Miranda also performed her song, “Dear Old Sun.” Watch the video above to see Miranda and LBT’s infectious cover of “Goodbye Earl.”
