Photos and video: Miranda Lambert performs 'Bluebird' with Natalie Hemby and Oklahoma native Luke Dick on ACM Awards
NASHVILLE, Tennessee - Miranda Lambert, a former Tishomingo resident, gave a stripped-down performance of her uplifting hit "Bluebird" on Wednesday night's 55th Academy of Country Music Awards.
As previously reported, Lambert performed e at the mostly vacant Bluebird Cafe, alongside her co-writers on the song, Natalie Hemby and Oklahoma native Luke Dick.
The ACM Awards normally take place in the spring in Las Vegas, but were shifted to autumn and Nashville due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was the first time for the show to be centered in Music City, with the event broadcasting live on CBS from three iconic country music venues: the Grand Ole Opry House, the Ryman Auditorium and The Bluebird Cafe.
As previously reported, Lambert was among the early ACM Awards winner, earning the trophy in the Music Event of the Year category for her all-star cover of “Fooled Around and Fell in Love,” featuring Morris, Townes, Ashley McBryde, Caylee Hammack and Elle King. “Fooled Around and Fell in Love" is the signature hit of Oklahoma Music Hall of Famer Elvin Bishop, who grew up in Tulsa.
