Chicago’s Country LakeShake Festival had an all-women lineup on its first day and concert-goers were in for a real treat.
During her festival set, Miranda Lambert wanted some help from her fellow female artists to close out her performance. She invited country's best on stage including, Maren Morris, Lauren Alaina, Cassadee Pope, Lindsay Ell, and her fellow Pistol Annies members Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe.
The group bent their country genre and performed U2's iconic single “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” and it was incredible. Lambert uploaded a video of the performance, as well as behind-the-scenes footage, to YouTube.
“I can’t believe I get to stand up here with these bad***** tonight,” Lambert said. "We're going to make a toast to women singing women songs and we're going to toast to y'all for listening."
Later in the video, you can see all of the ladies practicing their harmonies and sounding like literal angels singing together while their voices blend beautifully.
Lambert confirmed that she's working on the follow-up to 2016's The Weight Of These Wings. While that album was mostly inspired by her divorce from fellow country artist Blake Shelton, Lambert said her new album will have a happier vibe — no doubt a result of finding love again with her NYPD beau, Brendon McLoughlin.
Lambert recently gave fans a taste of what's to come on the new album after debuting a song called "Locomotive" live during her CMA Fest set earlier this month.
