Miranda Lambert honored one of her musical heroes, the late John Prine, on Wednesday (Oct. 28) during the BIG NIGHT (At the Museum) live stream in support of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
The Texas native performed “That’s The Way That The World Goes ‘Round” while playing Prine’s David Russell Young custom-made guitar at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. Lambert was beaming as she performed the iconic song and later shared that she didn’t want to wash her hands after touching the treasured instrument.
“Holding that guitar was pretty magical,” she said Lambert said following her performance.
The song was originally written and recorded by the legendary singer/songwriter in 1978. Lambert recorded the song on her 2009 album, Revolution.
