Miranda Lambert is currently in the midst of The Bandwagon Tour with Little Big Town and one of the many highlights of the show is Lambert’s emotional performance of “The House That Built Me.”
A Twitter user attended Lambert’s show at the Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio on Saturday (June 4) and perfectly captured the goosebump-inducing performance so fans can re-live the moment again and again.
Sporting red cowboy boots, rhinestone fringe jean shorts, a The Cadillac Three t-shirt and a black fringe jean jacket, Lambert took the stage to sing the GRAMMY-winning hit. Fans could be heard singing the chorus so loudly that Lambert decided to stop singing and let the crowd take the lead.
The singalong was a perfect example of the connection “The House That Built Me” has with fans.
“We love y’all for that song. Thank you so much,” Lambert exclaimed with a smile on her face.
“A magical moment. I will never ever get tired of hearing this song live or getting to sing it back. A truly incredible, once in a lifetime artist that I will forever be grateful to be alive to witness her greatness. thank you, @mirandalambert,” concertgoer Allie captioned the video, which now has nearly 3,000 views.
The comments section was filled with fans expressing their admiration for ACM Entertainer of the Year.
“Amazing video. Thanks for sharing. Love the way she delivers this song every time,” wrote one Twitter user, while another shared, “Touching my heart every time I hear this song wow thanks Miranda.”
“The House That Built Me” was written by Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin and appears on Lambert’s third studio album, Revolution.
Upon its release, “The House That Built Me” became Lambert’s first No.1 single on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and stayed at the top for four consecutive weeks.
In 2011, Lambert won her first Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for the song.
The music video was directed by Lambert’s longtime collaborator, Trey Fanjoy, and featured Lambert returning to her childhood home re-living the special memories that took place there.
“This was one of those videos that needed to be really obvious … [The director] found a house that looked a lot like the house I grew up in. There’s no drama in the video. It just is what it is. It represents the song in such a great way,” she previously shared with The Boot.
The Bandwagon Tour runs through Saturday, June 11.
