Lady Gaga performs "Million Reasons" during the first stop on the Bud Light x Lady Gaga Dive Bar Tour in Nashville, Tenn.

"My name is Lady Gaga," Stefani Germanotta introduces herself to the audience at Nashville's 5 Spot bar. "Tonight, if you could just call me Joanne...”

So begins her rendition of new power ballad "Million Reasons," in a video presented by Bud Light -- sponsor of Gaga's three-date Dive Bar Tour, which kicked off last week (Oct. 5) in the Tennessee capital. Wearing a Western hat, a spangly jacket and cut-offs, the singer leaves her eyes covered by her brim for most of the powerful performance released on Tuesday morning (Oct. 11), as she wails alongside co-writer Hillary Lindsey. Much of the beer-gripping crowd start to sway in time to the ballad, and by song's end, Gaga Joanne pulls Lindsey close for their closing harmonies.

Watch the clip below. Joanne is out Oct. 21, and Gaga will hit her next dive bar at a thus-undisclosed location the night before.
