Miranda Lambert is very vocal about her feelings towards Merle Haggard. She adores him.

She has looked up to him for many, many years and there's no surprise why. Haggard is a country legend and has countless hits including "Silver Wings", "Today I Started Loving You Again" and "Okie From Musgokee". 

While on stage in Las Vegas in 2014, Lambert introduced a special song towards the end of her set. 

"When we first started this tour, I was on stage and, my hero is Merle Haggard, my number one hero in life. I was up here and I got nervous and I forgot the words and my friend Eric Church was standing on the sidelines and he was watchin', and he came out and saved the day, so we're gonna do it one last time for y'all tonight."

Church came out in a black sweatshirt, beanie, and sunglasses and the crowd went wild! They began singing Haggard's song "The Way I Am" and it was amazing.

They traded off verses before singing together during the chorus. Church's harmony was a perfect balance to Lambert's powerful vocals.

"The Way I Am" was released in 1980 as the first single from his album of the same name. It reached Number Two on the Billboard Country charts

Their performance was flawless, incredible, and it was probably unrehearsed! Who else thinks they should duet more often?! 

Watch their performance below!

Lyrics Below

Wish I was down on some blue bayou
With a bamboo cane stuck in the sand
But the road I'm on, don't seem to go there
So I just dream, keep on bein' the way I am

Wish I enjoyed what makes my living
Did what I do with a willin' hand
Some would run, but that ain't like me
So I just dream and keep on bein' the way I am

The way I am, don't fit my shackles
The way I am, reality
I can almost see that bobber dancin'
But I just dream, keep on bein' the way I am

The way I am, don't fit my shackles
The way I am, reality
I can almost see that bobber dancin'
But I just dream, keep on bein' the way I am

I just dream, keep on bein' the way I am
