Miranda Lambert has been preparing for her Highway Vagabond Tour for many months now. The tour is in support of her two-disc album The Weight Of These Wings, which is her first release since her divorce from Blake Shelton.
Lambert has always put all of her emotions into songwriting and this album was no different. She included several fiery and upbeat tracks, but many extremely honest and vulnerable ones as well.
One of those vulnerable songs is "Tin Man", a song in reference to the character from The Wizard of Oz, who desperately wants a heart. Lambert is singing that he is lucky he doesn't have a heart because the pain of heartbreak is almost unbearable.
"Hey there, Mr. Tin Man/ You don't know how lucky you are/ You shouldn't spend your whole life wishin'/ For something bound to fall apart," she sings. "Everytime you're feeling empty/ Better thank your lucky stars/ If you ever felt one breakin'/ You'd never want a heart."
At the very first show of her tour in Evansville, Indiana, Lambert introduced the songs and warned fans she might get misty-eyed.
Introducing the heart-wrenching song, she said, "I spent a lot of time in the last two years thinking about my life and how blessed I am to have it, and writing about stuff that hurts, writing about stuff that's good and tonight makes it all worth it because you're in with me and I appreciate it very much. I'm gonna try this by myself and if I cry or don't know the words, no judgement zone, right?"
Accompanying herself on the guitar, Lambert left it all out there, and delivered an incredible performance of her heartbreaking song. We're not sure how she made it through the song with just tearing up, because we were a mess when we watched it.
