Miranda Lambert did the country community proud with her dazzling performance of at the 2021 GRAMMY Awards. The Texas native teased the performance as “ethereal” during an interview with CBS ahead of the show, and she was certainly right.

Lambert took the stage in a glittery mini to perform the reflective single, following the stunning rendition of “Black Like Me” by Mickey Guyton. She cruised through the vocals as the tune guided her way through a contemplative life motto that shines with both confidence and self-sufficiency.

The performance marked one of Lambert’s only times performing the song live as it went to radio after the COVID-19 pandemic began. I haven’t got to sing this song really at all because it was a single right at the beginning of 2020, so you know, the band and I got together and rehearsed it here on Monday and just made sure… we hadn’t played it much. I’m just excited to sing it,” she shared.

The “Settling Down” singer also shared her excited for the GRAMMYs in general, knowing that fans are looking forward to seeing live music once again. The show, though on television, is as close as music lovers can get to a musical escape for the time being, she explained.

“I definitely know, I speak for all of us probably when I say we really miss the fans, this year especially. But, at least we can bring the music to their homes and that’s better than nothing.

Tonight’s performance marks her fifth on the GRAMMYs broadcast. She’s currently nominated for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song with “Bluebird.” Lambert is also vying for Country Album of the Year with Wildcard against Ingrid Andress (Lady Like), Brandy Clark (Your Life Is A Record), Ashley McBryde (Never Will) and Little Big Town (Nightfall).

Other country performers from tonight’s show include Mickey Guyton, Maren Morris and Brandi Carlile.

This year’s GRAMMY Awards will also honor the hard-working individuals who are employed by small live venues across the country. Bartenders, box-office managers and day-to-day workers at the Troubadour (Los Angeles), the Hotel Café (Los Angeles), the Apollo Theater (New York City), and the Station Inn (Nashville) will present various categories throughout the evening.

The 2021 GRAMMY Awards, hosted by The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah, broadcast live tonight (3/14) on the CBS Television Network from 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT. See all of our coverage from the 63rd GRAMMY Awards here.
