Watch Miranda Lambert Kick Out Unruly Fan at Pistol Annies’ Ryman Concert
Miranda Lambert's a pro at handling crowds -- including the slightly unruly ones -- when she's onstage. During the Pistol Annies' Thursday night (Oct. 25) show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn., Lambert refused to let one fan in particular ruin the show for the rest of the crowd ... even if that meant a personal escort out.
During "Cheyenne," a new song from the Pistol Annies' forthcoming album, Interstate Gospel, a fan had moved from her seat to the front of the stage, and wasn't listening to security guards who were asking her to vacate the area. That's when Lambert took things (literally) into her own hands.
"Alright, I'm not gonna have you stealing our show tonight. You're gonna have to go sit down," Lambert told the woman (quote via Taste of Country). "This is our night right here. I'm sorry."
After waiting for security to try and handle the situation, Lambert took the fan by the hand and led her out. In the video above, readers can see Lambert crouch down to speak with the fan, then walk her away from the stage, to cheers from the crowd and high-fives from her bandmates Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe.
Pistol Annies are celebrating the release of Interstate Gospel -- which is due out on Nov. 2 and is their first new album since 2013 -- with a trio of shows in Nashville, New York City and Los Angeles. Prior to officially announcing their new record, the Pistol Annies had been teasing new music for months, dropping hints in interviews and on social media, as well as appearing together at some of Lambert's shows.
