Miranda Lambert provided one of the most impressive performances the night with her stripped down rendition of “Tin Man.”
With only a microphone and a guitar, Lambert once again proved why she’s one of the biggest stars in country music. Although collaborations and complicated choreography is entertaining, it’s hard to beat pure, unfiltered talent.
Watch the performance below.
Written by Jack Ingram and Jon Randall, the powerful song describes the pain of heartbreak through a conversation with the Wizard of Oz character the Tin Man.
The track is featured on her critically acclaimed double album The Weight of These Wings. It’s up for Album of the Year, alongside Black by Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line’s Dig Your Roots, HERO by Maren Morris and Ripcord by Keith Urban.
Lambert is also nominated for Video of the Year, Single of the Year and Song of the Year for “Vice.”
