Miranda Lambert, Jack Ingram and Jon Randall gave the live debut of their collaborative music during the 2021 ACM Awards.
Live from The Ryman Auditorium on Sunday, April 18, the trio of singer/songwriters performed “In His Arms,” a track from their upcoming collaborative project, The Marfa Tapes.
“The Ryman is always special, we’ve all had special moments here, except never together, so this is really cool!” Lambert said ahead of their performance before Ingram added, “even though the seats are empty right now, you feel like your playing in front of your heroes that played here before. And I think the nature of this song is so rooted in songwriting and country music that it’s a very introspective performance. It’s really just get to the heart of the matter.”
