Miranda Lambert made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Friday (May 8) to perform her latest single, “Bluebird.”

Appearing from her “little writing nook” at her home in Tennesse, the superstar shared an acoustic performance of “Bluebird” and dedicated it to the first responders, health care workers and grocery store workers that are helping to keep everyone safe and fed.

“We’re praying for y’all. We’re so thankful for you. You’re all heroes,” she shared. “Hopefully we’re almost through this thing. Don’t forget to keep a bluebird in your heart.”


“Bluebird” is the second radio single from Lambert‘s latest album, Wildcard. She co-wrote the song alongside Natalie Hemby and Luke Dick.

“I love ‘Bluebird.’ It’s a song like I’ve never written before and I’m so proud to be a part of it,” the superstar previously shared in a statement. “Since I wrote it, I’ve been seeing bluebirds everywhere. The bluebirds had always been there – I live on a farm – but I never saw them like I see them now. It reminds me to open my eyes to what’s around me. Now, seeing a bluebird sitting on a branch means so much more to me. I see a little piece of hope there, sitting with wings, and it’s a reminder. I think this is one of those songs where every person takes what they need to from it.”
