Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban and Billy Gibbons Perform ‘Tush’ at 2016 ACM Awards
Lambert took over the lead on the song, flanked by Urban and Gibbons. The hard rock tune, with lines such as "I been bad, I been good / Dallas, Texas, Hollywood / I ain't askin' for much / I said, Lord, take me downtown / I'm just lookin' for some tush," was perfect for Lambert's voice, while Urban and Gibbons had plenty of time to show off their undeniable guitar skills, trading off guitar riffs while Lambert sang.
Earlier in the evening, Urban performed his latest single, “Wasted Time," from his upcoming RipCORD album. Lambert previously won an ACM Award for Vocal Event of the Year, for "Smokin' and Drinkin'" with Little Big Town.
“[Little Big Town member Karen Fairchild] told me, ‘You have a song I want!,’” Lambert recalled about the award-winning tune. “So I said, ‘If I cut it, will y’all sing on it?’ This was at the CMT Awards, just joking around in the dressing room. But when I went in to record it, I thought, ‘If Little Big Town want to sing on my record, we are d–n sure taking advantage of it!’"
Lambert also won the ACM Award for Female Vocalist of the Year. She was also nominated for the night's highest honor, Entertainer of the Year.
Lambert fans will have plenty of chances to see her perform this summer. She will kick off her Keeper of the Flame Tour later this month, with Kip Moore and Brothers Osborne serving as her opening acts. A list of all of her upcoming shows is available on her website.
