Tuesday night (January 24th) the Windy City got a special treat...and I LOVE THIS ~Tammy Daye
"Miranda Lambert was “rehearsing” for her 2017 Highway Vagabond Tour with a small club show in Chicago, Ill. — and near the end of the night, she was joined onstage by two very special people: her father, Richard Lambert, and her boyfriend, Anderson East. Together with Lambert’s band, they performed a gospel song, “Woke Up This Morning (With My Mind Stayed on Freedom).”
After Lambert introduced her band, her backup singer, Gwen Sebastian, started off the tune … and then handed the mic off to Mr. Lambert! Readers can press play on the video above to watch Richard Lambert and his country superstar daughter harmonize on the civil rights movement-era song. East, too, takes a few lines for himself, and throughout the onstage jam session, Lambert’s band members chimed in and offered up instrumental solos. Lambert herself, meanwhile, mostly added harmonies and grooved along in the background."
