“Still on cloud 9 from last night! Thanks @blakeshelton for surprising everyone in Dallas! #hubby #home #family #Texasproud”
Shelton’s unscheduled appearance was undoubtedly a thrill for fans. Once onstage, Shelton praised Lambert, calling her “the most important country artist in music today” before launching into a performance of his first No. 1 hit “Austin.” Lambert even joined in on the ballad, singing harmony.
The Texas native seemed to be thrilled about her return trip home, describing the emotional show as a “dream come true.”
“Thank you so much Dallas Tx! There is nothing like playing at HOME! What an incredible and emotional night. Truly a dream come true. And thanks Blake for taking this pic #AmericanAirlinesCenter #Texasproud #home #cheers”
Lambert will return to the Lone Star state on April 19 to perform at the 50th annual ACM Awards held in Arlington, Texas. The five-time ACM female vocalist of the year leads the list of nominees with eight nominations, including one for entertainer of the year.
