You just never know what you will get with Miranda Lambert.
And that’s exactly why we love her so much.
Miranda stepped on the stage of the 51st Annual CMA Awards looking absolutely retro-gorgeous and reminded everyone in attendance that this is, in fact, a country music show. In fact, her performance of “To Learn Her” from her album “The Weight of These Wings” hearkened back to a ’90s country feel, something that Miranda had discussed with Rare Country earlier in the week.
“This is the country music awards, so I wanted to do a country song,” she told Rare Country’s Hunter Kelly. “It is country!”
She also spoke about the process of writing the song, which she co-wrote with Waylon Payne and Pistol Annies’ bandmate Ashley Monroe.
“We had a beer, and we were just in a country music mood,” Miranda explains. “But the way the song starts is with a steel guitar, and it just gives me chills. It reminds me why I love country music. That steel guitar intro and the piano solo — it brings back all these memories of what made me fall in love with it in the first place.”
Our thoughts exactly Miranda.
