Miranda Lambert had her first performance in front of a live audience since the COVID-19 pandemic began and live shows were put on hold. The show took place at the famous honky-tonk Billy Bobs in Fort Worth, Texas, on Thursday, April 23, 2021, and was the first of three shows she had there over the weekend.

Her first time back on stage overwhelmed her with emotions that spread to just about every attendee in the audience.

The show was energetic and exciting in addition to the fact that everyone was excited to be able to enjoy live music again. Then Lambert slowed things down with the song, “The House That Built Me,” from her 2009 album, Revolution. The song itself is an emotional one and combined with the significance of the show, it triggered a reaction throughout the entire venue.

Lambert started the song but choked up after singing a couple of lines. She smiled through tear-filled eyes while the audience erupted in cheers that only added to the emotion of the moment. Unable to continue, the audience took over and finished singing the song.

The song itself holds significant meaning to Lambert. The lyrics talk about her upbringing and how she got to where she is now. Billy Bobs happens to be one of the venues where she started her career and being back there performing after such a long break was surely on the country artist’s mind.

Watch the heartfelt moment below.
