Miranda Lambert's Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Unplugged Tour has given us the chance to fall in love with her sound all over again.
At a performance in Peoria, Illinois in February, although just recently available to us on YouTube, Lambert sat on a barstool and explained that her next tune is "one of [her] favorite songs. It's one of those songs you hear and say, 'damn I wish I would have written it’."
The song is called "Angel from Montgomery" and Lambert performs it like she's been doing it forever!
"Angel From Montgomery" was written by John Prine appearing for the first time on his self-titled album in 1971. He wrote the song after a friend suggested he write "another song about old people" since his song, "Hello In There", did so well.
He writes about a middle-aged woman who feels older than she is. She wants to get out of her house, marriage and everything else. She longs for an angel to come take her away from everything she wasn't enjoying anymore.
The song has been covered by many artists including Carly Simon, Holly Williams, John Mayer, Tanya Tucker, and most famously, Bonnie Raitt.
Lambert puts her own spin to it and we could listen to her version over and over again. Her Unplugged Tour has given her the chance to explore herself vocally, and she is sounding better than ever!
