Miranda Lambert played a special show in Nashville on Tuesday night (Sept. 20), recorded for an episode of the TV series Front and Center. In addition to welcoming a number of songwriter pals to Marathon Music Works' stage throughout her set, Lambert also invited her father, Rick Lambert, and her boyfriend, Anderson East, out to perform a couple of songs.
Readers can press play above to watch a snippet of Lambert and her father singing "Greyhound Bound for Nowhere;" the two wrote the song together for Lambert's 2005 album Kerosene.
“I texted my mom last night and said, ‘Get on Southwest and come to Nashville,'” Lambert told the crowd before singing with her dad (quote via Taste of Country). “My dad was my very first co-writer I ever had. He taught me how to play guitar, and he taught me my love of music. Dad and I haven’t sang this song together, except by a campfire, in a long time.”
Below, readers can see a bit of Lambert and East's performance of "Getaway Driver," which they wrote together for her most recent album, The Weight of These Wings.
“It’s very much the story of my last couple of years and all the things you go through in life,” Lambert said of the album on Tuesday night. “Thank you to all of the songwriters for going down this road with me and spending your time on my journey.”
Tuesday night was not Lambert's first time sharing a stage with her dad or East. During a January club show in Chicago, she invited both of them out to sing the gospel song “Woke Up This Morning (With My Mind Stayed on Freedom).” Lambert and East have performed together a number of times during each other's shows, including singing "Getaway Driver" together during an August stop in London, England.
Also among those who performed with Lambert on Tuesday night were Shane McAnally, Liz Rose, Jessi Alexander, Jack Ingram and Jon Randall. Throughout her set, Lambert discussed how The Weight of These Wings' songs came to be, including what she and her co-writers were doing (or, more accurately, what they were drinking) when they were writing.
