Miranda Lambert is one of several female icons in modern country music. Additionally, she rocks the stage as a powerhouse of an artist. Her voice is recognizable above many on country radio. During country music’s CMA Summer Jam, which took place at the end of July, Lambert took to the stage with country duo Brothers Osborne and long-reigning artist Dierks Bentley. The collective of artists performed a rendition of The Allman Brothers Band’s “Midnight Rider.”
Following that performance, we’d give one more silver dollar to watch the country stars sing “Midnight Rider” all over again. The song itself has seen many artists’ renditions over the years. However, there’s something about a collective of diverse country singers and artists putting their own spin on the iconic single.
While the clip above is only a snippet from the group’s performance, you can check out the full slip here. Commenters to the clip shared their love for the artists’ performance. Many highlighted their admiration of the song itself, while others applauded the overall rendition of the iconic hit. Others expressed their love for the individual artists, especially Miranda Lambert.
“You always amaze me Miranda❤️,” wrote one follower. Others shared their experiences of Miranda Lambert in concert, stating, “she rocks,” beneath the clip. Miranda’s strong, mid-range voice is one of the highlights of the “Midnight Rider” performance. However, others loved seeing Brothers Osborne‘s lead guitarist, John, take vocal lead on the song momentarily. Overall, the performance was both memorable and well-received.
Miranda Lambert Kickstarted Her Career In Pistol Annies
Contemporary fans of Miranda Lambert’s recognize her for her Allstar concert performances and her iconic mid-range vocals. Although, the star’s iconic career in country music is also tied to the all-female band, Pistol Annies.
Pistol Annies premiered on the country music scene with their hit song, “Hell on Heels.”
The band consists of fellow artists, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley. Miranda Lambert’s stage appearances frequently feature a lot of sequins, colors, and various cowgirl boots. However, her part as Lonestar Annie among the Pistol Annies features her in much more muted colors and styles.
The trio’s first hit, “Hell On Heels” highlighted each of the women’s vocal ranges. The ranges also frequently speak to their personalities as they revealed in a 2011 Boot interview. Monroe shared during the interview she always saw herself as a “hillbilly hippie,” inspiring the name, “Hippe Annie.”
Presley claimed the title of “Holler Annie,” who originates “from a holler in Kentucky,” according to Miranda Lambert. The star further revealed that Presley’s character has both a dark and a sweet side. Overall, in the band, their dark sides typically prevail.
“I have a little bit of an edge,” Lambert shared during the interview and after following her career in the media for so many years, fans can see for themselves she’s not wrong. Her songs frequently feature wild woman antics (“Gunpowder & Lead”) and an independent streak (“Settling Down”), highlighting her “Lonestar” vibes.
