Miranda Lambert offered up an acoustic performance of an “oldie but a goodie” during Sunday’s We’re Texas fundraiser, which was organized by Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves McConaughey.
The superstar, who was born in Longview, Texas, performed her 2011 hit, “Heart Like Mine,” during the livestream event. The song was released as a single in 2011 as the fifth single from her 2009 album, Revolution. Lambert co-wrote the song alongside her longtime friend and Pistol Annies’ cohort, Ashley Monroe, and Travis Howard.
Lambert’s acoustic, at-home performance can be seen in the clip below.
We’re Texas also featured performances by Texas natives Charlie Sexton, Clint Black, Gary Clark Jr., George Strait, Kacey Musgraves, Kelly Clarkson, Khalid, Kirk Franklin, Leon Bridges, Don Henley, Los Lonely Boys, Lukas Nelson, Lyle Lovett, Parker McCollum, Post Malone, Willie Nelson, Randy Rogers and more.
In addition to the star-studded list of performers, the benefit concert also included special appearances by Angie Harmon, Chip & Joanna Gaines, Clayton Kershaw, Colt McCoy, Dak Prescott, Dr. Phil McGraw, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Joe Rogan, the Jonas Brothers, Jordan Spieth, Liza Koshy, Megan Thee Stallion, Michael Strahan, Renee Zellweger, Selena Gomez, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Troy Aikman and Woody Harrelson.
Proceeds from the concert will be distributed by the Just Keep Livin’ Foundation‘s Texas Relief Fund to several non-profit organizations including Austin Disaster Relief Network, Meals on Wheels Central Texas, Salvation Army of Texas, Save the Children, Bernard Project (SBP), Team Rubicon and many more. The funds will be distributed to help Texans affected by the recent winter storm which knocked out power to millions of homes and busted water pipes, leaving numerous residents without clean water.
Organized by Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves McConaughey, the Texas benefit concert aired on Sunday, March 21 at 8:00 p.m. ET on McConaughey’s YouTube channel.
