Miranda Lambert’s “Tin Man” has struck a chord with millions of fans ever since her stirring performance of the song on the ACM Awards last April. Armed with just her voice and a guitar, Miranda stood alone onstage and delivered one of the most raw, honest performances we’ve seen on a country awards show in years.
The response to Miranda’s performance can be seen clearly in this new mashup of fan covers of “Tin Man.” The compilation features women either sitting in a studio or simply singing in their bedrooms or living rooms. The common thread is that they all clearly feel the emotion Miranda felt when she wrote the song with her co-writers, Jon Randall and Jack Ingram.
The video has been viewed more than a half-million times on Facebook so far, and it’s not the last time you’ll get to hear a stunning version of “Tin Man.” Miranda welcomed Jon and Jack onstage to perform the song last week at a taping for an upcoming installment of PBS’ “Front and Center.” In fact, Miranda welcomed most of her co-writers from her double-album, “The Weight of These Wings,” to sing with her during the taping, which was part of the ongoing “CMA Songwriters Series.”
She said at the top of the show, “Thank you to all of the songwriters for going down this road with me and spending their time on my journey.”
Look for that episode of PBS’ “Front and Center” to air in early 2018.
