There's no question Miranda Lambert is one of the leading females of country music. The Texas native has an undeniable talent to share the most unique and powerful of emotions with a packed crowd, all the while making each listener feel as though the performance is an intimate experience. Her single "Tin Man" is arguably one of her most vulnerable singles to date and every performance evokes an emotional response from both the crowd and the artist herself. Recently, the country star gave a stirring performance of the solo acoustic ballad in the latest episode of Austin City Limits.
While Lambert's episode won't premiere until later this week, watch her perform “Tin Man" at the 2017 ACM Awards, which will leave you anxious for her episode to air.
Since the 2016 release of her two disc album, Weight Of These Wings, Lambert has consistently silenced arenas with this particular track. She introduced “Tin Man" with a thought provoking story of the songs creation, as well as why she performed it last, alone at the mic. “I wrote this song with two of my best friends, that are from Texas as well, Jack Ingram and Jon Randall. I think we all needed to write this song at the time that we wrote it. We all took equal parts in each other's pain and put it down on paper and on a record. I recorded it, but I wanted to do it by myself because I feel like that's where it starts – with a song and a guitar and a girl and some emotions. So I'm gonna leave it there tonight."
Austin City Limits is a PBS program where artists perform live for a small studio audience which is taped and televised for a later date. Lambert's episode will air on Saturday, November 4 at 9 PM EST.
