Miranda Lambert Sings Classic Hit ‘Willin” During ‘Country’s Night to Rock’ [Watch]
CMA Music Fest is a time for country artists and fans to come together to celebrate what we all love: music. This year, Miranda Lambert celebrated music by covering the 1970 Little Feat hit, "Willin'."
Clad in a metallic silver skirt and armed with her pink guitar, Lambert gave a performance of the the track that is comparable to the original.
"And I been from Tuscon to Tucumcari / Tehachapi to Tonapah / Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made / Driven the back roads / So I wouldn't get weighed / And if you give me weed, whites, and wine / And then you show me a sign / I'll be willin' to be movin'," Lambert serenaded the crowd.
Linda Ronstadt also used to cover the song in her live shows in the '70s, and included it on her Heart Like a Wheel album.
Lambert's performance was recorded during the festival in June, and shown during Wednesday night's (Aug. 3) broadcast of Country's Night to Rock on ABC.
Lambert is keeping herself busy this summer; she is currently on the road on select dates of Kenny Chesney's Spread the Love Tour, as well as playing her own headlining Keeper of the Flame Tour.
In addition to playing arenas, ampitheaters and stadiums during the dog days of summer, Lambert also recently released new music for the first time in two years, the very personal single "Vice."
“I wrote this at the exact time of the sh– hitting the fan, I think it’s great, though. It’s documented on paper with emotion,” Lambert tells the Tennessean. “Everybody has a vice they run to when they need comfort, and I think that’s what this song says. There’s no mystery here. I run to things for comfort just like everybody else."
