Even the most seasoned and successful performers can get nervous. That happened to country music star Miranda Lambert a few years ago.

On Thursday, March 11, Lambert took to Twitter to talk about one performance that made her very nervous. The performance was one where it was just her on stage playing her guitar.

Here’s what she had to say: “Tin Man ACMs 2017. This was 1 of my most nerve wracking performances. Just me & my guitar. Nothing to hide behind. I wrote this w/ @jackingram & @jonrandallmusic. It’s on our upcoming album #TheMarfaTapes. The new version is like this performance…and it’ll be out at midnight ET.”

Accompanying the text was a short clip of Miranda Lambert singing “Tin Man.”

Lambert’s fans praised her for the song and her other work in response to her tweet.

“Loved this performance!! Can’t count how many times I’ve heard someone say, “A truly great artist can just stand up there with a guitar like Miranda,” one fan shared.

“One of the absolute best performances on an awards show ever!” another said.

There was also this response: “Your performances have moved this gruff 51-year old to tears a few times. This was one of those times.”

Miranda Lambert Releasing New Album Titled ‘The Marfa Tapes’

In addition to talking about that 2017 performance, Miranda Lambert also promoted her new album with Thursday’s tweet. That album is titled “The Marfa Tapes.” It is the singer’s ninth studio album. Its name derives from the place where it was recorded. That place is Marfa, Texas.

And, just as Lambert said in her tweet, the new album also features Jon Randall and Jack Ingram. She has described the sound of “The Marfa Tapes” as “raw.”

“You can hear the wind blowing, the cows mooing,” Lambert has said. “We wanted you to feel like you were right there with us, sitting around the campfire, escaping the world, disappearing into the music.”

According to Miranda Lambert’s official website, “The Marfa Tapes” album will be available on May 7, 2021. If you’re looking forward to the album, you can already listen to one of its songs. That song is titled “In His Arms.”

You can watch the official video for this song below. It’s a good example of what Lambert’s fans can expect from the upcoming album.
