Country star Miranda Lambert dropped by NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers” to promote her double album, “The Weight of These Wings,” on Dec. 6.

She pleased audience members during the broadcast with her latest single, “We Should Be Friends,” which is included on the record’s second disc, titled “The Nerve.”

For her performance, the Texas-born songstress appeared onstage in a denim jacket that featured red cloth draped over her acoustic guitar.

A moving bassline and drums set the tone for the tune, as Miranda playfully revealed all of her bad habits over the microphone in hopes to find similar interests with a potential pal. She flashed her sweet smile and flaunted her twangy vocals on the lyrics, “If you paint your nails while you cut your loss/ If you like acting like you’re the boss/ If everything your daddy says is something you can put stock in/ well then we should be friends.”

“We Should Be Friends” is an original song written by Miranda and is the only self-penned cut on her “Weight of These Wings” album. Prior to performing the song, Miranda and her band had a little joy with an impromptu dressing room version of Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes’ hit, “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life,” which Miranda included on her Instagram.
