“I just released a record this year called The Blade, and I’m gonna do that song, and I’m gonna have the special guest vocalist that sang on that song on the record with me sing it, for the first time live, really, ever. So … here’s little miss Miranda Lambert!” Monroe introduced Lambert to the crowd at the City Winery.
“I took her little butt to Dollywood,” Ashley told the crowd, referring to Lambert. “And we wrote songs. We were sitting out on this cabin porch and she grabbed a steak knife because I thought I heard a bear.”
“You gotta be prepared,” Lambert added.
“She sleeps with her gun, don’t anybody sneak up on her. Take it from me,” Monroe continued.
“She always calls and says, ‘I’m coming over, don’t shoot.'” Lambert interjected.
“We wrote this song in the mountains of East Tennessee,” Monroe returned to the topic at hand, introducing their song “Heart Like Mine.” “Then she recorded it and made it a No. 1, which I’m so grateful for.”
Lambert’s been making several appearances in Nashville this past week. She also performed Jessi Colter’s “Storms Never Last” on the Grand Ole Opry.
