Lambert, a two-time GRAMMY winner, is currently nominated for three GRAMMYs, including Best Country Solo Performance, Best Country Song for “Bluebird” and Best Country Album for Wildcard. She’s set to take the stage to perform “Bluebird” during the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards, airing live on Sunday, March 14, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT on CBS.
Earlier this week, Lambert rehearsed for her performance at the STAPLES Center. In behind-the-scenes photos, Lambert is seen sporting a casual jean jacket and gold cowboy boots while surrounded by colorful flowers at her feet and hanging from the ceiling.
Today, Lambert dropped a new version of her hit “Tin Man” featuring Jack Ingram and Jon Randall. The stripped-down version is included on the collaborators’ forthcoming project, The Marfa Tapes, which will be released on May 7.
The Marfa Tapes is a collection of intimate, raw songs the artists wrote and recorded together in the small town of Marfa, Texas. Recorded with just a pair of microphones and an acoustic guitar, the project offers fans an unfiltered glimpse of the trio’s unique songwriting process.
