The CMAs wouldn’t be complete without a performance by 12-time award winner Miranda Lambert, who brought a little grit to the Bridgestone Arena crowd with her current single “Vice” — the first off her upcoming album The Weight Of These Wings (Nov. 18). The song reached no. 2 on Hot Country Songs earlier this year.
After being introduced by host Carrie Underwood, Lambert stood alone onstage in front of a classic-looking red velvet curtain, sporting a suit and acoustic guitar. She kicked off the tune a capella before the curtain lifted to reveal a seven-piece band (complete with three guitars and organ) supporting the singer through the rest of her heartfelt performance.
