Miranda Lambert has taken the country by storm with her latest headlining tour Keeper of the Flame. She always manages to find the room to throw a cover or two into her concerts, which never fails to delight the crowd. But during a concert in Virginia Beach on May 20, Lambert wasn’t alone when it came time for her to cover one of the most iconic songs of all time.
Written by country legend Kris Kristofferson and songwriter Fred Foster, “Me and Bobby McGee” was originally recorded by country star Roger Miller. Many others recorded the song over the years, but no version was more popular than Joplin’s, which topped the Billboard chart when it was released following her death.
To this date, Joplin’s version is regarded as one of the best songs in all history, with Rolling Stone ranking it as the 148th Greatest Song of All Time.
Lambert and her friends embraced the inner rockstars for their performance of the song, which was lively and fun-filled. Everyone gathered around each other’s microphones and sang along, while Lambert’s voice soared above the rest. You can tell from watching the performance that everyone had a great time rocking out together, and the crowd loved it as well.
