Miranda Lambert is offering some words of wisdom to her fans. She said to “lean into music” and that “music is medicine.”
COVID-19 has been going on for about a year at this point. There have been few signs that life will be returning to normal soon. This means that music will continue to exist through a screen instead of through live performances for the most part.
In April of 2020, Lambert posted a video singing her song “Bluebird” on her Tennessee farm. In the background, you can hear the soothing sound of moving water and a waterfall from a nearby spring.
The sound of nature in the background pairs perfectly with the beautiful and calming acoustic rendition of “Bluebird.” This song comes off her 2019 album, “Wildcard.”
Before she starts singing she says to fans, “I sit on this porch and I’ve done a lot of healing, a lot of thinking right here. I actually got married right here … I just want to remind everybody that we’re here in it together. Thank goodness for technology that we can still connect and thank you to the ACMs for setting this up and allowing us to connect with each other.”
The performance was set up by ACM and is called “ACM Presents: Our Country.”
As a natural performer, Lambert has joined countless artists of all genres as they work to redefine what it means to be an exceptional performer during these difficult times.
Miranda Lambert Fundraiser
Right now Miranda Lambert is helping raise money for MuttNation. According to her YouTube page, the total raised is $5,040 as of right now.
This is Lambert’s personal foundation that she helped to start. It has been around since 2009.
According to the website, “The mission of MuttNation Foundation is to promote and facilitate the adoption of shelter pets, encourage spay & neuter for all pets, and educate the public about the importance and beneficial impact of these actions. Our objectives are accomplished through numerous initiatives which include: high-profile adoption events, fundraising events, a national pet transport network, and providing financial support to carefully vetted shelters across the United States. MuttNation is also committed to providing monetary, hands-on, and transport assistance during times of emergency and disaster.”
The animal-centered organization showcases how important animals are to the country singer. She worked as a volunteer at shelters and adopted her dog, Delilah, as a companion when she was touring. She and her mom have been the driving forces of MuttNation.
In addition to helping shelter pets find forever homes, the foundation also has pet products as well. Tractor Supply Company and MuttNation collaborated for a line of dog and cat foods, treats, and toys.
The foundation recently had an event for Valentine’s Day where there were over 14,000 volunteers for different animal shelters. This is the third year, but the biggest turnaround so far.
Tennessee Farm Life
The video of Lambert singing her song “Bluebird” takes place on her Tennessee farm. The land she has is no joke.
Lambert and her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, live on 400 acres of lush, woodsy isolation. They are about an hour from Nashville.
According to Taste of Country, she spent $3.4 million in 2016 on the property. It also includes three residences, a six-bay garage, a lake with a boathouse, and a huge house barn.
There is also a pavilion which can seat 60 people for private events.
With the pandemic, Lambert has gotten to spend more time than ever at her beautiful rural escape of a home. This means performing with the natural sounds of Tennessee in her music.
