Miranda Lambert is not shy about her love for traditional and classic country music. Her biggest influences from that era of the genres are Merle Haggard and George Strait. She often pays tribute to both, but at a recent tour stop in Texas, she enlisted the help of hometown boy, Wade Bowen, to do so.
Since they were in Texas, it came as no surprise to anyone at the venue that they covered a George Strait hit together. Performing “A Fire I Can’t Put Out”, Bowen played the guitar and sang the melody, sounding similar to Chris Stapleton we might add, and Lambert sang the harmony.
Their voices sounded so incredible together, and the two performers seemed so at ease as if they had sung together thousands of times.
“A Fire I Can’t Put Out” was the fourth single off Strait’s 1982 album Strait From The Heart. It catapulted to the No. 1 spot on the charts in 1983 shortly after it was released.
Both Bowen and Lambert took to social media to express their gratitude for one another afterwards.
After the performance was over, the audience went wild with applause and cheer – for good reason! Watch Lambert and Bowen’s insane harmonies on the George Strait hit below.
