Miranda Lambert Plays ‘Covered Wagon’ From Her New Album Live [Watch]
Miranda Lambert's upcoming double album The Weight of These Wings is lined up to be packed with stellar tunes, including a rendition of "Covered Wagon," which she actually debuted at a show in Indiana back in May.
Dressed in hippie-chic garb, Lambert busted out the tune, originally penned and recorded by Danny O’Keefe in 1971, by first introducing a part for the audience to singalong.
The crowd picked up on the line “on down the road we go,” and Lambert kicked into the first verse with gusto. It’s clear she loves the laid-back traveling tune, as she swivels her leg to the beat and smiles when the audience comes in. The style is right up her alley, so it’s no surprise it will make a perfect fit for her album.
Lambert recently released the names of all 24 tracks on the record, including her single “Vice,” and the title track for her upcoming tour, “Highway Vagabond,” written by Luke Dick. The tour, which kicks off in January and runs through March, features supporting acts Old Dominion and Aubrie Sellers. The double album also includes the title song from Lambert's last tour, “Keeper of the Flame."
The artist has been revealing details about the album in mysterious videos via Instagram for weeks, and fans will finally get to hear it all when it drops on Nov. 18. The album art suggests the record may have a folkier, down-to-earth feel. Listeners will be anxious to hear how Lambert's divorce from Blake Shelton appears thematically in the tunes, as Shelton has already dished many of his feelings in his most recent record, If I’m Honest.
