Miranda Lambert Surprises Fans with Special impromptu Trio Performance at Texas Concerts

Miranda Lambert is gearing up to release her next album. In the meantime, the Texas native is on a tour that will keep her on the road until late September.

Up-and-comers Wade Bowen and Adam Hood opened the show for Lambert. They also joined her onstage during her first night at Whitewater. They called their impromptu group The Pistol Mannies, a play on the Pistol Annies—the girl group Lambert formed with Angeleena Presley and Ashley Monroe. It was a fitting name because they performed the Annies’ debut single “Hell on Heels” for the crowd. Watch a fan-shot video of the performance below.

That wasn’t the only impromptu three-piece that graced the stage that night. Lambert’s fellow Texans, friends, and longtime collaborators Jon Randall and Jack Ingram also joined her. They performed “In His Arms” from their 2021 collaborative album The Marfa Tapes.
