Miranda Lambert won’t launch her Highway Vagabond Tour until late January, but that hasn’t stopped the Weight of These Wings singer from hitting the talk-show circuit. Last night, Lambert stopped by Late Night with Seth Myers to deliver the TV debut of “We Should Be Friends,” the follow-up track to her album’s Grammy-nominated kickoff single, “Vice.”
A loose, greasy slab of funky-tonk, “We Should Be Friends” finds Lambert beefing up her social circle with a likeminded group of buddies, extending friendship to everyone from beer drinkers to daddy’s girls. “If you use alcohol as a sedative and ‘bless your heart’ as a negative. . .we should be friends,” she sings during one of the album’s sharpest moments, backed during the Seth Myers taping by a revised version of the band that joined her during this year’s Keeper of the Flame Tour. Watch the full performance above.
In what’s already shaping up to a busy December, Lambert also stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show – filmed in Southern California, nearly 3,000 miles from Seth Myers’ Manhattan studio – this week to perform “Vice.” The song received two Grammy nods yesterday morning, earning nominations for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song. See that performance below.
