Miranda Lambert’s “Flame” Burns Bright Even in the Rain

Even the rain couldn’t dampen Miranda Lambert’s enthusiasm as she kicked off her Keeper of the Flame tour this past weekend in Maryland Heights, Missouri.

“I am so ready!” the seven-time ACM Female Vocalist of the Year told the crowd during her eclectic 20-song set that included covers ranging from Foghat’s “Slow Ride” to Little Feat’s “Willin’.” She even segued into her hit “Little Red Wagon” with a jazzy version of the Ella Fitzgerald tune “Your Red Wagon.”

“The crowd’s energy was just incredible,” she said after the show. “I told them I could feel the rain making its way to the stage, but they didn’t leave. We were all soaked by the end of the night, but those nights are what I live for.”

Miranda continues her trek with Kip Moore and Brothers Osborne Thursday night in Bethel, New York.
