Live shows are finally coming back, and Miranda Lambert sold out her first concert of 2021 at the iconic Texas venue, Billy Bob’s Texas.
On Instagram, Lambert proudly announced her return to live music after over 400 days of waiting. The country star wrote:
“We’re back y’all! We did our first 3 shows @billybobtexas last weekend and we had a blast! Thanks to everyone who came out. The warm welcome back to the stage with the band after over 400 days sure felt good! Loved getting back to my old [sic] stopping grounds.”

During the show, the Texas native became emotional when singing one of her biggest hits, “The House That Built Me.” The song was initially released in 2010 and charted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs for four weeks in a row.
While singing the hit, Lambert began to choke up and was unable to continue singing the words. Instead, she gestured for the crowd to lend a hand while she pulled herself together and wiped the tears from her eyes. A large portion of the audience began to sing, and the crowd also gave the country star a standing ovation of encouragement.
