Miranda Lambert and Anderson East took a moment during a recent tour stop in Bossier City, Louisiana to rock out the classic rock tune “Stay With Me.” A 1971 hit from The Faces, “Stay With Me” is about as 70s rock as it gets.
Between the shredding guitars, raucous vocals and, *ahem*, raunchy subject matter, “Stay With Me” would feel out of left field for just about anybody other than Lambert. And the fact that she takes lead is just positively rock n’ roll.
But the surprise came when Anderson East came out to rock the song alongside Lambert. Though they’re both on tour, they’re not technically on tour together. Miranda Lambert’s Highway Vagabond Tour features Old Dominion and Aubrie Sellers as openers.
But the couple, which went public with their relationship a little over a year ago, clearly have fun rocking the stage together.
Lambert is known to throw a relatively obscure cover or two into her set. And when she and East start ripping it together, they clearly have a good chemistry. Heck, they even dance together and share a quick kiss. She announces him as “my baby boy.”
Being honest, most of the crowd probably had no idea what the song was. But they totally ate it up.
East is a well-respected artist in his own right. He possesses a unique growl in his vocals that feels reminiscent of acts like Ray LaMontagne. East has a few dates scheduled this year in April and May, including Stagecoach Festival in California.
Meanwhile, Lambert keeps the Highway Vagabond Tour rocking all the way into August. And who knows, East may show up again somewhere down the road for another surprise duet.
Lambert is currently enjoying the success of her critically acclaimed album The Weight Of These Wings. East released his major label debut Delilah back in 2015, scoring success in both the folk and the rock worlds.
