Miranda Lambert was one of many country stars who took the stage for Loretta Lynn's all-star birthday tribute concert that was held in Nashville on Monday (April 1). And the singer knew the perfect song to perform in honor of the country legend.
"Thank you for inspiring me (and) all the advice... about when husbands piss you off a little bit," Lambert said, laughing. "I'm gonna do one of those right now."
Lambert performed Lynn's song "Don't Come Home A-Drinkin'," which became Lynn's first No. 1 hit in 1967. Lynn was named the Country Music Association's Female Vocalist of the Year later in 1967. Lynn's songs, such as "Don't Come Home A-Drinkin'," "The Pill," "Rated X" and "You Ain't Woman Enough" made her a role model to generations of outspoken women in the country genre. Her influence can be heard in several of Lambert's songs, such as "Kerosene," "Heart Like Mine" and "Gunpowder and Lead."
"Loretta Lynn: An All-Star Birthday Celebration Concert" featured performances by George Strait, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Kacey Musgraves, Alan Jackson, Lee Ann Womack and many more. The night also included a surprise appearance from Keith Urban, who jumped out of Lynn's giant birthday cake. Lynn herself even took the stage to perform her iconic song "Coal Miner's Daughter."
Lynn will turn 87 on April 14. She released her album Wouldn't It Be Great last year.
