Two Hours of Miranda Lambert, Cool Friends at Nashville Club

Singer Admits She's "Living on Caffeine and Sad Songs"

It sounds like there was a cool little guitar pull in Nashville on Tuesday night (July 29). Only this one had some star power that wasn’t so little.

Because Miranda Lambert was at the helm, and she had her songwriter friends who’ve written or co-written most of the biggest hits in Nashville in the past five years.

“I have really cool friends, don’t I,” Lambert asked the crowd of about 300 at 3rd & Lindsley, according to USA Today.

The show lasted about two hours, with Lambert and friends like longtime collaborator Natalie Hemby doing hits and deep cuts like “Bathroom Sink,” “Another Sunday in the South,” “Dear Diamond,” “White Liar,” “Automatic,” “Baggage Claim” and “Fine Tune.”

Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town, who are on a hiatus right now because of her husband Jimi Westbrook’s vocal surgery, made a special appearance at the show. She and Lambert sang Lambert’s latest single “Smokin’ and Drinkin’,” plus Little Big Town’s own “Pontoon” and “Girl Crush.”

“It’s been a long time since I’ve played like this,” Lambert said, “but I get to be up here with some of my best pals I write with all the time. Actually, in the last two weeks, I’ve written with everybody up here.”

Besides Hemby and Fairchild, other cool friends Lambert had on stage included Jessi Alexander, Jon Randall, Luke Laird, RaeLynn, Clare Dunn and Courtney Cole.

And while Lambert didn’t use the public show to talk about what’s going on in her private life, The Tennessean newspaper reported she said she’s been “living on caffeine and sad songs lately.”
