Miranda Lambert brought an acoustic rendition of her song “Bluebird” live from her “Magic Porch” in Tennessee to fans across the country during Wednesday (June 3) evening’s two-hour CMT Celebrates Our Heroes: An Artists of the Year Special.

Prior to Lambert’s performance, she spoke on why this pandemic has hit so close to home for her telling viewers, “I’m still praying so hard for all the first responders. I come from a family of police officers and firemen and cops, and I’m married to an NYPD officer and just wanted you to know that you mean the world to us and we cannot thank you enough for all that you’re doing.”
