Miranda Lambert just dropped an acoustic version of her latest single, “Bluebird,” and it’s absolutely stunning.

The acoustic clip showcases Lambert’s gorgeous vocals and puts the song’s affecting lyrics at the forefront.

“And if the house just keeps on winning/ I got a wildcard up my sleeve/ And if love keeps giving me lemons/ I’ll just mix ’em in my drink/ And if the whole wide world stops singing/ And all the stars go dark/ I’ll keep a light on in my soul/ Keep a bluebird in my heart,” the Texas native sings throughout the chorus backed by an acoustic guitar.

Lambert has performed “Bluebird” acoustically several times over the course of the past few months. The superstar recently dedicated the track to police officers and firefighters working during the COVID-19 pandemic during the two-hour CMT Celebrates Our Heroes: An Artists of the Year Special.

Lambert co-wrote the song with 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.”

“Bluebird” is the second radio single from Lambert‘s latest album, Wildcard.
