The View: Miranda Lambert “Automatic” Performance
Miranda Lambert performed her song “Automatic” on The View after the interview and it was an electric performance. Miranda Lambert really did a good job of not just performing her song, but really emoting it. I think that’s a crucial part of country music, especially live.
For some reason, Miranda Lambert had a huge band on stage with her, including four guitarists. Which is about two too many guitarists. Still, it all sounded really cool together. Miranda Lambert is one of the foremost country stars and it’s obvious from this performance why.
